Can I safely charge a Flip 36 on a Nomad 100?

Bob Member Posts: 4 ✭✭

Will any of the power bank items be damaged by charging them with higher output devices? For example the maximum output of a Nomad 100 is much higher than the max input of the Flip 36. Would than cause any short or long term damage to the Flip 36?

    Hi @Bob ,

    Since these devices are charged via a USB type connection, the input power is regulated by the USB. This means that even if you were to use a 200W panel, the USB will limit it to a max of 15W coming from the panel. There should be no way of damaging the Flip 36 unless the USB is malfunctioning.
