Simple fast charging
The 1Amp output of the BOLT charges target devices at the same rate as a typical wall charger. On average, a smartphone goes from zero to full in just under three hours. Since most devices these days charge by USB, it’s more simple than ever to Plug Into the Sun.
While electronics are changing all the time, there are two standard charging specs that devices adhere to; a CTIA standard charge output which most devices follow, and an Apple charge output which Apple products follow. The BOLT is designed to switch modes, allowing for the most efficient charging of all devices regardless of which charging mode they require. When the BOLT’s LED button is green, this indicates that it is in CTIA or Normal charging output mode. To switch modes, simply hold down the button for 5 seconds and release. The button will then light up blue, indicating that it is now in a mode optimized for Apple products like the iPad, iPhone, and iPod.
