Q: What is the difference between this HALO and the previously offered Pocket Power 2800?
A: This charger has almost twice the battery power of the Pocket Power 2800 (5,500 mAh versus 2,800 mAh). This increased capacity allows the user to charge a greater range of electronic devices, including those that require a higher input voltage, like tablets. The 5500 is also designed to allow the user to charge two devices at the same time (assuming one of the devices requires a micro USB charging connection).
Q: Is this compatible with all cell phones?
A: Yes, the output voltage is compatible with all cell phones and will work with all cell phones provided the user has the appropriate tip to fit their cell phone or has a USB connector cable that came with their phone or was purchased separately. The cell phone industry has moved to standardize all the charging inputs to a micro USB connector so all new cell phones will work going forward. Cords or tips that allow the Portable Power Charger 5500 to work with all cell phones do exist in the marketplace.
Q: How do you charge an iPhone 5 with the HALO?
A: The user would need to use the white cord that came with the iPhone from Apple. Plug one end into the phone and the other end into the output USB port on the Portable Power 5500. A convertor connector is also sold that will allow a user to go from the micro USB tip or 30-pin connector tip to the iPhone 5 tip.
Q: Will this charge older iPhones?
Q: Will this charge an Android phone, such as a Droid Maxx?
Q: Will it charge older, non-smart, phones?
A: Yes, as long as the user's phone has a charging connection that is compatible with the three provided tips or they have a phone connector cable with a standard USB connection.
Q: Can it charge a GPS?
A: Yes, as long as it is compatible with the three provided tips or a connector cable with a standard USB connection.
Q: Can it charge tablets including the newest versions of iPads?
A: Yes, partially. See the Battery Life tab for details.
Q: Will this charge a handheld game, such as Nintendo DS?
A: Yes, this unit will charge handheld gaming devices. The three tips provided do not cover all the gaming devices in the market and the user may need to purchase an additional tip and/or cord to allow the charger to connect to their respective gaming device.
Q: Will it recharge a rechargeable digital camera or camcorder?
A: Yes, as long as the device is compatible with the three provided tips or a connector cable with a standard USB connection.

Q: Can the battery be replaced by the manufacturer?
