How to charge a PowerStick chargers are easy to use.  Here is some detailed information about how to charge or re-charge a charger.  For the below illustrations we used the PowerStick+ but all chargers function in the same general way.   These charging instructions can be applied to most of our products*.

3. The charger is full and finished charging when the battery status meter indicates so.

Some chargers have an LCD screen that displays 8 bars.  When all 8 bars are full and solid, the charger is fully charged and can be disconnected.  Newer chargers have 4 LED lights to indicate the battery status.  When all 4 lights are light up, the charger is full and finished charging.

a battery status meter will indicate when the charger is fully charged

4. Disconnect and keep your charger close for the next time your phone needs a charge. chargers will retain their charge for up to a year.  So if you keep your charger in your bag and only need it one year later, it will still be charged and ready to go.


Please note that the occasional RESET may be required to “wake up” a dormant charger.  To RESET,  hold down the power button for 15 seconds and then release.
