The Luminoodle Color and Basecamp do not have internal power supplies because we wanted users to be able to cater their power source to their specific use-case scenario. We wanted to make all of our Luminoodles as versatile as possible so you can use them with smaller, more portable battery packs, or larger and/or less portable power sources. To determine what you'd like to use to power your noodle, read on!
The Luminoodle Color works with any USB power supply with a 5V, 1A output. Most portable battery packs have a 1A output, but some computer, TV and laptop USB ports do not. Because of this, we recommend verifying the USB port you plan to use can supply enough power for the Luminoodle Color. If you don't have a preferred battery pack, we recommend the Lithium 3400 that is included in the Luminoodle Color Plus package.
The Luminoodle Basecamp requires a power input of 36W (12V, 3A). The Basecamp comes with an A/C outlet and auto adapter so you may use it with a wall outlet or car cigarette lighter. The Basecamp can also be powered by certain power banks. If you purchased one of our Pronto 12 battery packs, use the Basecamp's auto adapter to plug it into the auto adapter included with the Pronto 12. If you missed out on the Pronto 12, don't worry! We'll have a new 12V battery pack available in June. For more information, please see the "Portable Power" category.
