    Is anyone running the fast charger for the GT? What are the specs on it, usually it states on the bottom. Voltage and amps? Curious how much energy I'll be drawing from my socket.

    Thanks!

    I'll take a pic and post tomorrow of the new GT fast chargers stats, in the meantime here is the old fast charger that can still be used.

    180 - 264V?

    Does that mean there's a different charger for 110V countries?

    Yep on the old ones they was not sure about new. From what I understand slow is 2A fast 4A

    Its pushing 42 Volts @ 4 Amps. Thanks! Is that the same for the black US / 110v GT model as well?
    Yes, we need the power supply to run off of 110V, 180V is too high for us and we wouldn't be able to drive it.

    What is the charge time for the Carbon GT with the new faster charger compared to the one it comes with?

    I just got a new, Super Fast charger & it charges my Bamboo GT when completely drained in just over an hour. Not sure about the voltage specs tho..

    Evolve site says 3hrs for Carbon GT probably due to the bigger battery.

    Hi Complete Newb here - Would it be possible to buy a power bank and charge the board off that? I've tried reading through the thread around chargers an outputs and i don't quite understand....Is the fast charger is fast because it pushes through a higher voltage at higher amps compared to the original charger?? So if there is a power bank that has 20,800mAh and a maximum output of 5V @ 4.8A would it charge the board at the normal charger rate?

    Just thinking it might be good to have an "emergency" powere supply should a plug not be near or if i forgot a charger etc. - A just in case kind of scenario

    No power bank would have to be the size of a shoebox
