Our official suggestion is that you use the adapter and cable included with you Model C5.  

If you need to find a replacement or duplicate power source please use these criteria when selecting a power source: 

  • Make sure the adapter is rated for: 5 VDC at 2 Amps (or higher rating)
  • The cable should be a high quality USB type A male to micro USB type B cable. 
  • Any length is acceptable (3, 6, or 10 feet)
  • USB data lines are not used
  • Use either USB micro port on the Model C5
  • Do not use both ports simulateously, USE ONLY ONE AT A TIME.

  • A laptop USB port may not have adequate power rating (< 2 Amps).
  • Most plug-in car or wall outlet USB power/charger ports work very well. Be sure the rating is at least 2 Amps (10 Watts) per port
