Power Supply

Your Bodypack comes with a USB Type-C power supply, which you can use when your Bodypack is not in active use (on-body).

Power Bank Requirements

To use your Bodypack on-body, you need a power bank with a USB Type-C port that can output:

Voltage/Current PD standard
12V/3A (Power Delivery 1.0)
‍15V/1.8-3.0A (Power Delivery 2.0/3.0)

Make sure the USB C cable powering the Bodypack is rated for USB Power Delivery (PD).

Battery Life

The Bodypack, connected to a pair of MANUS Quantum Mocap Metagloves, uses ~15Wh. Using a 90Wh power bank, you should be able to get ~6 hours of battery life. ‍

Battery Pouch

The optional MANUS Quantum Bodypack Belt comes with a battery pouch to securely stow your power bank.

The pouch can fit power banks up to 7.5cm (3 inch) in width, 3.5cm (1½ inch) in depth and up to 20cm (8 inch) in height.

We recommend using angled USB Type-C connectors in the power bank and Bodypack, and routing the USB cable through the belt.

Power Bank Recommendations

When picking a power bank, consider one that shows their remaining power level on a display.

We have positive experiences using the UGREEN 145W Power Bank 25000mAh power bank, which is sold in many countries around the world.

Other suitable power banks include:

  • Xiaomi 50w Power Bank 20000mAh
  • Anker 737 Power Bank (PowerCore 26K for Laptop)
  • Anker 737 Power Bank (PowerCore 24K)

Suitable power banks are often advertised as laptop power bank due to their ability to charge USB-C Type-C PD supported laptops.
