What is the voltage/current for the Switch that makes it ‘picky?’

I’m no electrical engineer, but I would think that the Xtar PBS2 would be a no go because of the voltage requirements of the Switch—upwards of 15vdc at 2.6 amps.

Maybe not a problem if it’s mostly in a fully charged state, but they keep mentioning charging up from a 7% state of discharge, so things will be steep/more power required at that level of discharge.

I’ve read of some power banks having higher levels of outputs, perhaps as high as 15vdc, but I can’t name any of them, so I won’t try.

They’re out there, however, so keep Googling. You need 15vdc at 2.5A, for the most part.

Sorry for the concerns.

I have a PBS2 and like it enough with my 50E 21700s, but it’ll only do so much.

I just got my PBS2 out and the box states this:

OUTPUT:

QC3.0 & PD3.0: (5vdc 2A, 9vdc 2A and 12vdc at 1.5A)

From a ‘mostly charged’ state, you might get some juice, but of course it will be a slower charging rate and the mother cells should be fully charged.

Probably won’t be harmful, but charging it up from a slightly depleted state would be the way I would go.

Good luck.

I was in Paris right before my 18th birthday and went to see the Parisian opening of Apocalypse Now in a beautiful and ornate theatre,

I smuggled some Kronenburgs and airline vodka in with me.

I had a blast!
