Powering the Luminex with the USB Cable
When the Luminex is connected to your computer for Realtime via the micro USB cable, the main battery continues to power the writing machine. When the main battery becomes low while using the micro USB connection, low battery messages display on the Luminex, but all features continue to operate. The USB port can power the Luminex and will trickle charge the battery when the main battery is not fully charged. The USB port provides power to run all the Luminex components except Bluetooth communications. When powered by the micro USB port,the Luminex tilting screen displays at about half of the Backlight brightness setting.
When the USB cable is plugged in, the battery icon will display the battery with a lightning bolt.
Stenograph recommends you always plug your AC charger into your Luminex when not in use; you cannot overcharge the battery. It is a good idea to have your AC adapter with you just in case. If you do Realtime either with a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection, it's a good idea to have your USB cable in case of a low battery situation and you need to charge the Luminex.
