    I left my backup battery at home today and I tried to charge an iPhone 8 using the USB slot in my DIAD charger. It’s not charging and I get this message:

    We had a driver get fired for stealing electricity doing this.

    Pretty sure it won’t charge a phone; only something simple like a Bluetooth speaker. Even then it’s only just enough charge to keep the speaker on (and only charges while the engine is running unless the mechanics have wired the cradle to always be “on”).

    Yeah I’d be surprised if it was Apple friendly. It does keep my Bose speaker charged all day though. Doesn’t really add charge it just maintains the battery.

    I have heard of drivers being able to get a slow charge for a phone but I don’t have a software driver if that is what I need as in the Error message. I couldn’t find anything in the DIAD settings.

    As dumb as that is, I honestly can't even tell if you're joking or not.

    In all honestly I wouldn't plug my phone into their cradle . Anytime you plug your phone into another device there is information transfer and I don't trust anything UPS .

    I tried that port. It didn't charge at all. It seems to mess up the diad too.

    That’s why I just plug my phone charger into the cig lighter

    I went many many years with those old alligator clips. I still have my old boom box I used to connect up to a hot wire under the dash everyday after I left the building. I lost track of the times I was warned about hooking up to UPS power.

    I was accused of that once when every wire in a P800 I was driving melted and went up in smoke. Out of shear luck my radio wasn't even in the truck that day. I had taken it in to a repair shop to have it worked on. A team of about 5 suits met me at the building and was hunting for blood until I opened the hood and showed them where a main wire had shorted out causing it to start a chain reaction. What ever it was they sent me on my way (with a smile on my face).

    Lies!

    According to Dave that could never happen.

    I guess the couple of times I saw cars catch fire when they were parked inside the building never really happened.

    Our building burned TWICE with package cars starting on fire in the middle of the night.
