Double-whammy today. The sun is out, we're enjoying a ginger beer ahead of the start of the world cup.
Outta This World #3 and Super Duper feature 1.7
Super Duper feature 1.7: SmartPower
A few weeks back, we showed you this:
Well the answer as some of you observed, was the "lightning strike" adjacent to the USS Nimitz.
The lightning strike denotes this SmartPower logo on the micro iDSD:
Which means on-the-go recharging for your Smart Device.
The micro iDSD has a side USB port specifically for charging iPhone/Samsung/Smart devices.
Just like this (micro iDSD + Smartphone):
This is because we have a whopper of a battery onboard and it has a nifty circuit to perform charging when the iDSD is powered-off (sorry folks, cant enjoy hi-res AND recharge your device simultaneously).
The power supply section details are:
|Powersupply||4,800mAH Lithium Polymer battery and USB (selectable)||Battery operating time up to 12 Hours|
|USB (Battery Charging Standard Rev. 1.2 [BC1.2] compatible charging system)|
Outta This World #3 Turbo Power mode
On the HE-6, to 108dB which is darn loud. So these planars will be moving some air.
In USB power mode, this will of course be indefinite (it will need a BC1.2 compliant "DCP" (Downstream Charging Port) which delivers USB audio and an extra Juicy 1,500mA current instead of the measily 500mA of a standard USB 2port) but in battery mode, with the HE-6, it should run for about 6 hours.
The red button is the 'nitro' option - officially, it has been named "Turbo" mode for headphone power output.
Hope you had as much fun reading this as we did developing these features after your Crowd-Design suggestions.
