Charging Voltage for Clip+

Anyone know the maximum permissible DC charging voltage that can be applied to Clip+ without frying it?

I'm wondering if I can use the car cable from my (Garmin) GPS which has the same usb connector and supplies 5-8 volts DC.

5.5v is as far as I would go.

The Clip spec is for 5V.

Re: Charging Voltage for Clip+

Just some information for you all.

 

The Kindle charger that has the detachable USB cord works fine with the clip.  It's 4.9v.

 

Also, the charger that comes with the T Mobile MyTouch 4G phone and has the detachable charger works.  It's 5.0v.

 

All you have to do is put the standard mini-USB cord that comes with the Clip into either the Kindle or MyTouch charger and away you go.

I have a USB charger for the LG Octane that runs at 5.1 v out. Will that work?

Re: Charging Voltage for Clip+

Anything between 4.9V and 5.1V should be fine. The USB spec is 5.0V. You might be okay with slightly more or less, but IMO it's not worth the risk.
