FiiO E18 Charging

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I have just received my FiiO E18 (at long last), and I have a question about how to charge it.

 

It charges O.K when plugged into the USB port on my PC, but the user guide says it can be fully charged in approximately 4 hours when plugged into a 2A USB charger. I assume this is so that the E18 can be charged without requiring a PC or laptop.

 

Can I plug it into any mains (2A) USB charger? There is nothing in the user guide about this, and I want to make sure I don’t damage the E18.

 

-- Thanks

Yes, charger of Ipod, Iphone ( not Ipad, be carefull about this ) and others phone's are good ideas. We have a lot of E18 and other Fiio products in our shop. And most of the time when i need to charge, i use my Sony Arco S Charger ( 5V ) to charge micro-usb-charginng-port products, and it's fine !

Thanks, silentmoon

 

Someone from FiiO also got back to me with pretty much the same answer.

 

I've had a brief listen to the FiiO E18 and initial indications are that it's superb. It's got a very tactile, up-front sound with lots of detail. It's way superior to the stock sound from the Samsung Galaxy S4.

 

I'll post a review when I've had a chance to put it through it's paces properly.

why cant you use a 5v 2a apple ipad charger ? if its current out is 2a surely its going to be fine, as this is whats stated as a fast charge time in the manual . however if the e18 doesn't have charging current regulation the 5a charger could potentially damage the battery and or current regulator (if it has one) ? 

... i must admit i dont know much about lipo charging but it seems to make more sense to me ?

I'm sorry. I've check it and realize that E18 E12 can still be charged by Ipad charger. Because the first version of E17 and Astell&Kern AK100 cant survive if being charged overnight by ipad charger. 

 

Tks for your informative post !

I use a 2 Amp charger I got with my Asus Transformer and it works fine. I have to agree listening to music on my S4 is a joy now. I didn't use the bands that came with the Fiio e18 I stuck velcro on the back and on the case for my S4.
