General Information


1. Will myPower GO work with my device?
  myPower GO works with hundreds of personal electronic devices. For a list of compatible devices, go to:

2. If my device is not listed on the compatibility list, will it work with myPower GO?

myPower GO works with most devices that require 5V or less. The compatibility obstacle for myPower GO is the physical connection to the power jack. Device manufacturers all use varying types of jacks, so an adapter must be used to connect the myPower GO cable to the device.

The adapters that fit a majority of the jack types are included with myPower GO. However, if you cannot find your specific model in the compatibility list, but see similar models, it is likely that myPower GO will work with your device. You can assume that the model has not been included in the compatibility list, as we have not yet identified the adapter type on that specific device.

Tekkeon makes every effort to identify the adapter plug requirements of new devices. However, due to the large number of devices available, we are not able to identify the adapter requirements for every device.
