The 72 battery and all bags that include the V72 come with an adapter for recharging from an AC power source (100-240VAC).
Included adapters allow you to: Connect to laptops via 10 standard adapters. Charge devices from the USB Port using your own cable or the standard mini and micro USB adapters. Connect to car-powered devices with our car charger socket.
Try setting voltage one lower than your laptop charger's output first. If this doesn't properly charge your laptop, then use the higher setting. (e.g. if your charger says 19V, try 16V setting on Voltaic battery first. It can save power if the laptop drops the voltage.)
The smaller and more efficient your laptop, the more runtime our battery will provide. To maximize runtime, change your power management settings to Maximum Battery Life & turn off WiFi.
Some laptops will run from the Voltaic battery with their internal battery removed. You should turn off your laptop before the Voltaic battery is fully drained to avoid crashes.
Remove the cable from your device before changing Voltage between 12, 16 and 19V.
We recommend storing and charging the battery in a cool place.
If you don't see the correct adapter for your device, please use the manufacturer supplied USB cable or please contact us via our Tech Support Form.
Our chargers are designed as universal chargers so this is a partial list of thousands of compatible devices. If you have a question about compatibility with your device or expected charge times, please contact us via our Tech Support Form.
