Charging without USB

Does the Up band charge when inserting the band directly into the headphone jack of a computer (rather than using the USB cable)?

Re: Charging without USB

zany,

This is a great question! The UP band will only charge using the included USB charging cable. It will not charge when directly inserted into a headphone jack.

Re: Charging without USB

Jawbone Alex,

 

Can I charge the UP band with the wall charger for the ERA or Jambox instead of plugging into the USB port of a computer?

 

Thanks,

cmfiallos,

You sure can! Should not be an issue at all. How are you liking your band so far?

Re: Charging without USB

I will be travelling soon for about 3 weeks and I am not taking my comptuer.

My UP band will need charging while I am away. I know there is a wall charger - my question is "Is it dual voltage"?

Re: Charging without USB

Thank you!  My dog chewed my USB Charger for my UP (grrrrrrr)

and it needs charging.  

 

I was so impressed with my UP, I got the LG. JAMBOX!  Now I know I can use that charger for my UP!  :catvery-happy:

Re: Charging without USB

Is there any other alternative to charging it without the supplied USB cord? I have misplaced (!) that and will run out of battery soon, before a replacement is in ....

Re: Charging without USB

I have tried connecting with a USB to 3.5mm connector and no luck. Have tried it in MacBook USB port and iPad charger. UP is completely dead. Any suggestions? Thanks

Re: Charging without USB

It's a standard USB voltage and amperage - I don't have the wall charger, but every other one I do have (Kindle, cell phone, etc) works in all global voltages. Here's a quick way to check: look on the back and it should say something like Voltage: 100v-240v. If it does, you're good to go internationally. It it says only 100v or 110v then you'll need a voltage converter to use it.
