Power Pod User Manual
What are the dimensions of the Power Pod?
3 x 2 x ¼ inches
What is the weight of the Power Pod?
What is the mAh?
What is the wireless charger output?
15W Max - 5W/7.5W/10W/15W
Is the Power Pod only for iPhones?
No. The Power Pods are essentially just wireless chargers with built in MagSafe magnets, so they will charge any device that is wireless charging compatible. They can still charge devices that do not have wireless charging functionality via a USB-C cord. They can be connected to the device through a cord and basically become a normal portable charger. If your phone or case is not MagSafe compatible, the built-in magnet function will not work without adding the magnet ring (included with each Power Pod) to the back of your case or phone.

What cases do the Power Pods work with?
The Power Pods will attach to and charge through any case that is MagSafe compatible and will charge through any case that is wireless charging compatible. We include an Adhesive Magnetic Ring that attaches to any non-MagSafe case or device and will turn it into a MagSafe compatible accessory. Our Classic + MagSafe and Bold + MagSafe cases for the iPhone 12, 13, & 14 are currently the only MagSafe compatible cases and will work with the Power Pods without the Adhesive Magnetic Ring that we offer.

Does the Power Pod only work with MagSafe?
Nope! They are built for MagSafe, but can be used as a normal wireless charger or portable charger.

What do I need the Adhesive Magnetic Ring for?
The Adhesive Magnetic Ring is for turning any case or phone into a MagSafe compatible accessory or device. The ring is not needed if you have a MagSafe compatible case or phone.
Where do I attach the Adhesive Magnetic Ring?
The Adhesive Magnetic Ring can be attached directly to the back of the phone or outside of the case. The magnetic ring will not work through a case, so if you are wanting to use a case with the Power Pod it will need to be on the outside of the non-MagSafe case.

How long does the Power Pod take to charge?
The Power Pod will typically take about 2-3 hours to fully charge, depending on the type of charger you are using.
How long does it take to charge the phone?
The Power Pod can take 3-4 hours to fully charge the phone depending on the battery level of both devices. We recommend limiting how much you use your phone during charging to get the most out of your Power Pod. For example, if you are charging your phone with the Power Pod but you are also streaming a movie or listening to music, your phone is simultaneously using the battery that the Power Pod is adding to your phone.
How many charges can you get out of the Power Pod?
Depending on the device, you can get up to 80-100% battery life from the Power Pod. We recommend limiting how much you use your phone during charging to get the most out of your Power Pod. For example, if you are charging your phone with the Power Pod but you are also streaming a movie or listening to music, your phone is simultaneously using the battery that the Power Pod is adding to your phone.
Can you charge both the phone and Power Pod simultaneously?
Yes. If you are using the Power Pod as a wireless charger, you can plug it in to charge via cord and turn it on to charge the phone.
Will the Power Pod get warm when charging?
The Power Pod may heat up during charging, which is very normal. Just like any wireless charger, MagSafe charger, and computers, it is normal to become warm when a battery is in use. We recommend keeping it out of extreme heat and limiting phone use when charging.
Does a Power Pod charge an Apple Watch?
No, an Apple Watch is not able to be charged with our Power Pods.
How do I turn on/off my Power Pod?
To turn the Power Pod on, simply click the power button once and the four white lights will come on as well as the red light. The red light will turn green when the Power Pod is connected to a device and has begun charging. To turn the Power Pod off, simply click the power button twice. Please note, if you hold down the power button for longer than a second, the Power Pod will not react and no lights will come on.
