Overview
TekChargeTM MP1860A is a dual port emergency charger with two outputs to simultaneously charge
and power your iPadTM, iPhone®, iPod® nano or iPod® touch, and a second small portable device. By
taking advantage of the TekCharge MP1860A rechargeable lithium ion battery, you can enjoy hours
of extended play time on your battery-hungry devices, like iPad, iPhone, iPod, mobile phones, smart
phones, PDAs, portable routers, micro projectors, pocket video cameras, GPS, digital cameras, MP3
players, and Bluetooth® headsets. As an added bonus, TekCharge MP1860A includes a flashlight so
you have emergency light at your fingertips.
TekCharge MP1860A connects to your device in three ways: you can connect to your iPad, iPhone,
iPod nano or iPod touch using the included 30-pin USB cable, or you can use your own USB device
cable, or an adapter tip to connect to your device. Your TekCharge MP1860A includes a 30-pin
USB cable for connection of your iPad, iPhone, or iPod, and Mini USB and Micro USB adapter tips
for connection to current models of BlackBerry,® HTC, LG, Motorola, and Samsung mobile phones.
These USB adapter tips also can be used to charge your Kindle2, Nook, MP3 players, PDAs, portable
media players and other 5V devices that use a Micro or Mini USB cable to charge. If the extra
adapter tip you need isn’t in the package, just go to www.tekkeon.com or call us at 888-787-5888
or 714-832-1266 to order more adapter tips for a nominal fee.

Using TekCharge MP1860A
TekCharge MP1860A can be used to power or charge any portable device that requires 5V. If your
device has a DC jack with center negative polarity, do not power the device with TekCharge as it
does not support center negative polarity.

Center Positive
TekCharge MP1860A can be used to power two devices at once by connecting one device to each
output port. However, the output current for both ports is limited to a total of 2.5A. If this current is
exceeded, TekCharge MP1860A will shut down to protect itself from overloading.
Charging TekCharge MP1860A
TekCharge MP1860A should be charged when initially removed from the package, or when the
capacity indicator lamp turns orange to indicate that the battery has less than 20% capacity. As an
option, you can simultaneously charge both TekCharge MP1860A and the connected device.
1. Plug the included Mini USB adapter tip into the retractable input/output cord.
2. Insert the Mini USB plug into the Mini USB port (5V IN).
3. Connect the USB plug on the opposite end of the input/output cord into a USB port on your
computer or into the included USB power adapter (and connect to a wall socket).
4. To charge only TekCharge MP1860A, slide the power switch to
OFF. If the battery level is less than 80%, the lamp
will be orange. When the battery is more than
80% charged, the lamp will change to blue.
The battery will be fully charged after five
hours if charged with the included USB power
adapter, or after 10 hours if charged with your
computer USB port.

at some point.
5. When the battery is fully charged, unplug the input/output cord from both TekCharge MP1860A
and the computer or power adapter.

Troubleshooting
If TekCharge MP1860A does not power your portable device or charge the device battery,
take these steps:
1. Check that the input/output cord is connected to both TekCharge and the portable device, and
that the adapter plug fits snugly into the power jack on your portable device. If not, try another
adapter tip.
2. If connecting TekCharge to a device with a DC jack, verify
that the polarity of the device power jack is center positive.
If the polarity is center negative, do not power the device
with TekCharge as it does not support center negative.
Center Negative
Center Positive
3. Verify that a battery is installed in the portable device as some devices will not function without
a battery installed.
4. Determine if your device is designed with charging circuitry that limits the input voltage. If so,
TekCharge MP1860A may not be able to power or charge the device. (For example, if a device
is designed to accept only a 4.2V input, then TekCharge MP1860A may not be able to power or
charge the device.)
If your iPad, iPhone or iPod does not sync while TekCharge MP1860A is connected to a
computer:
1. Ensure that TekCharge MP1860A is connected to your computer using a USB/Mini USB data
cable.
If TekCharge MP1860A shuts down for five seconds to five minutes after you connect a
device (or two devices at the same time):
1. Connect TekCharge MP1860A to the included USB power adapter or to your computer.
2. Check the power capacity on TekCharge MP1860A. If the battery is empty or too low, recharge
the battery.
3. If the TekCharge MP1860A capacity indicator is blue, check the connected device (or devices) to
ensure the total output current does not exceed 2.5A.
