Every time I go camping, I bring a battery pack to charge my iPhone and Apple Watch overnight. While the phone is just plug and charge, I always have trouble with the Watch. For one thing there’s the usual problem of it falling off the charging puck since there’s no stable flat surface in my tent to keep it. But, worse, no matter what I do, it won’t charge off my battery packs.
I have both Anker and RAVpower battery packs and when I connect the Watch via the Apple charging pack, I get the ding and green lightning bolt, but it just won’t charge. Am I missing something? Is there a better travel charger out there specifically for Apple Watch?
This! I used to try charging my BeatsX headphones with a generic battery pack and they would only charge solidly once they had a minimum charge and then not all the way until full. I put this down to the slower charging rates used at ‘either end’ of the charge cycle. Which kinda made it useless for me because I only needed to charge from battery because they turned off with insufficient power while I was on my commute.
I did not know about this! Wish I’d known. But now I’m living the AirPods Pro lifestyle it’s no longer a problem for me. Might still be worth investing in one, though.
