Can I charge my USB-C laptop from the powerstation USB-C XXL battery?
Absolutely. The powerstation USB-C XXL battery supports the USB-PD (Power Delivery) Specification, providing the increased power levels (up to 30W) necessary to fully charge a USB-C laptop such as the Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro.

What is USB-C?
USB-C (also called USB Type-C) is a new USB connector that supports higher power-current transfer and faster data transfer via a small connector type that is about the same size as a micro-USB connector. This allows super-fast charging of devices with a small, easy-to-carry cable that can also serve as a data transfer cable. The USB-C standard also features reversible plug orientation and cable direction — it doesn’t matter which end of the cable or which side of the connector you connect, the USB-C cable and ports work properly either way.
Can I recharge the powerstation USB-C XXL battery from a USB-C laptop’s USB-C port?
You can recharge the powerstation USB-C XXL battery from a USB-C laptop’s USB-C port only when the laptop is also connected to its wall charger. In this situation you must press-and-hold the powerstation battery’s status button for 2 seconds. The battery’s status LEDs will flash towards the left to indicate that the battery is receiving a charge. (The laptop will pass the charge from the wall charger to the powerstation battery.) If you do not press-and-hold the status button in this situation, the powerstation battery will not recharge and it will not charge the laptop.
Note: A computer’s USB-A port will not effectively recharge the powerstation USB-C XXL battery.
Can I charge my device while recharging the powerstation USB-C XXL battery (Priority+ pass-through charging)?
Yes. When you’re recharging your powerstation USB-C XXL battery (via its USB-C port), Priority+ pass-through charging first provides power to a device connected to its USB-A port first, before the powerstation battery starts to recharge.
Can I use the supplied USB-C to USB-A cable to charge my USB-C laptop from the powerstation USB-C XXL battery’s USB-A port?
Do not connect a USB-C laptop to the powerstation USB-C XXL battery’s USB-A port (the charging speeds available from the battery’s USB-A port are too slow to effectively charge a USB-C laptop). Instead, use the supplied USB-C to USB-C cable to charge a USB-C laptop from the battery’s USB-C port. (The USB-C to USB-A cable is supplied so you can recharge the powerstation USB-C XXL battery from a 2.4V USB-A wall charger.)
Sometimes the powerstation USB-C XXL battery’s status LEDs flash in one direction, and sometimes they flash in the other direction. What does the flashing mean?
The status LEDs are flashing towards the right: The powerstation USB-C XXL battery is charging another device. The status LEDs are flashing towards the left: The powerstation USB-C XXL battery is recharging.
Will the powerstation USB-C XXL battery charge my tablet or smartphone?
You bet. The powerstation USB-C XXL battery will charge a USB-C smartphone at super-fast speeds via the USB-C port, and it also has a USB-A output port (up to 2.4 amps) that is compatible with just about any smartphone, tablet or other USB device. For example, the powerstation USB-C XXL battery can provide up to 100 hours of extra battery for an iPhone 7, and up to 20 hours of extra battery for an iPad Air 2.
How can I tell how much charge my powerstation USB-C XXL battery has?
Momentarily press the status button on your powerstation USB-C XXL battery and the status LEDs will indicate its charge level. Four LEDs means that the battery is fully charged, while one LED means that it’s almost empty. Know before you go!

How many times can I recharge my powerstation USB-C XXL battery?
You can recharge your powerstation USB-C XXL battery for over 500 full cycles. A full cycle is when you recharge the battery from 0% to 100%. Partial cycles, like charging from 25% to 100%, will not count as a full cycle until all of the partials equal 100%. After 500 full cycles, the powerstation battery may provide less than 75% of its original capacity. This is normal for any product with a lithium polymer battery.
Can the powerstation USB-C XXL battery charge multiple devices at once?
Yes, you can use the powerstation USB-C XXL battery’s USB-C port and USB-A port at the same time to simultaneously charge two devices. (As stated above, do not attempt to charge a USB-C laptop from the powerstation battery’s USB-A port.)
