The s24 sCharge 12W power supply delivers an output voltage of 5 volts direct current and 2.4 amps at 230 V alternating current. s24 is therefore suitable for all devices that require such a USB power supply. This is enough for the more powerful, larger iPads with 12.9 “ Continuous operation is not quite enough if you operate it with maximum screen brightness. If you reduce this to around 75%, s24 is also sufficient here.

Power over Ethernet

What do I have to consider with the switch for s28?

s28 is intended for PoE + or IEEE 802.3at up to 20V / 1.15A = 25W. For s28 L: not compatible with the sDock series. Do not use an Mfi Lightning® cable, as some Mfi cables do not allow power and data supply via USB-C with the 25W that may be required (e.g. iPad Pro). 

Does the s15 or s25 fit in a normal flush-mounted box?

A double flush-mounted box is required for both the s15 and the s25. We designed the s28 especially for European flush-type boxes. It is very compact and delivers data + power up to 25W. It is therefore strong enough for 12.9 “iPads or other tablets. 

What is the difference between s15 and s25?

The s15 is an active splitter. For the passive model s25, an injector is also available as Electricity supplier needed. 

Will s28 provide power *and* ethernet connectivity to an iOS Lightning device (iPhone/iPad) using a USB-C-to-Lightning cable?

Yes, when used with the USB-C to Lightning cable we offer, it will pass through power and data. Not all USB-C to lightning cables are designed to pass through data, but we designed this one to do so. For USB-C devices we suggest our s28 C with a special USB-C-to-USB-C cable.
