For about 30 seconds before your PE goes up in smoke. Most laptops have a 19v charger - the PE requires no more than 12v.

According to the specs, it can power both laptops and USB (12 volt devices).

Tut tut syclone, if your 5v max output voltage USB sockets are giving 12v then there is something seriously wrong with your device

In fact there has been debate about this in the past on this forum.

I should add that the USB specification rates the voltage available from a USB socket as 4.9v to 5.1v, anything out of that range is out of spec.

Neither EE or PE can be charged via USB; must use the appropriate power brick.

Of course, you're right - my error - I meant 5 volts.
