The Smartgloves does NOT come with a battery due to shipping legislation.
You need to purchase a standard USB battery pack in order to use the Smartgloves. It should deliver at least 2A/2000mA from a single output.
Each glove needs its own power source
This can be achieved by buying 2 power banks like the ones in our "recommended batteries" list, or similar. You can also buy 1 large power bank with 2x 2A outputs.
The capacity of the battery depends on the operation time you are seeking. You can expect around 5-6 hours of operation at 5000mA, but this can vary depending on the quality of the battery pack therefore we encourage our customers to use high-quality well-known brands.
As a rule of thumb, for every 1000mA of battery, you will get around an hour of play time so we recommend one that is 5000mA
If you own a Smartsuit Pro you can store the power bank in one of the pockets.
There is a pocket specifically dedicated to the power bank on the back of the Smartsuit Pro and it is designed to fit batteries around:
- 4.5 x 2.6 x 0.5 inches
- 11,5 x 6,6 x 1,3 cm
The front pocket can also hold larger batteries.
