For users attempting to use newer generation Apple iPad models, please keep in mind that the SB20 USB ports are specified to charge at 5V, 2.1A. This value is equivalent to a 10W charger from earlier model iOS devices. Apple devices coming with a 10W power adapter in the box are listed below:

  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2
  • iPad 2

For the newer generation iOS devices, charging requirements have increased from 10W to 12-18W. This will result in the perceived inability to charge or maintain a charge of a plugged-in iPad Pro while running a 3rd party application alongside Stages applications. 

It is recommended to pre-charge the device with the manufacturer-provided wall charger and limit overall ride duration, depending on the Apple tablet model and charging requirements.
