FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):

Q: Is this unit pure sine wave?
A: Yes. The unit will not disrupt operation of appliances needing a pure sine wave, like a laptop.

Q: Can I use the BaseCharge unit while it is solar charging?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I power an AC unit or heater?
A: BioLite does not recommend that the BaseCharge power AC units or space heaters.

Q: Does BioLite BaseCharge 600 work with non-BioLite solar panels?
A: Yes, the BioLite BaseCharge 600 can work with standard 12 V solar panels. It is not compatible with higher-voltage panels. If your non-BioLite panel utilizes an MC4 cord, note that the BioLite MC4-to-HPP adapter cord will be required for use (sold separately).

Q: Can I jump start a car?
A: No. The BaseCharge is not the appropriate voltage to jump a standard lead acid vehicle battery.

Q: Can BaseCharge be stored outside?
A: No. The unit should be stored inside in a cool, dry location. Do not expose your unit to extreme temperatures or moisture.

Q: Can I chain multiple BaseCharges together?
A: BioLite does not recommend chaining BaseCharge units together.

Q: How can I estimate how long BaseCharge will power a device I want to use?
A: The Easy-Read Smart Dashboard will calculate in real time the remaining hours left in the unit depending on level of charge, number of devices running, and if there is any power in. For more information on how to understand your power estimates, watch our video tutorials at BioLite.Help/BaseCharge600.

Q: How many devices can I charge wirelessly at once?
A: One device at a time can be charged wirelessly. The device must be directly on top of the wireless charging icon to receive a charge.

Q: What does the surge rating mean in the tech specs?
A: Many devices that use a compressor or electric motor need a momentary spike in wattage to initiate the device. It then settles down to a lower, operational wattage. The BaseCharge can accommodate those “start-up” wattages with the surge capacity feature, but cannot sustain that surge wattage for longer periods of time.
