    The USB connection can be unreliable as can be. I am so disappointed the charge connectivity is easily contaminated with debris. The idea there is not a wireless charge option to save the wear and tear on the connection when charging at home. My iPad is only two years old and the USB connection is problematic at this point. So what is the point of a backup battery if the slightest wiggle causes the charging process to fail.

      Go to Amazon and buy a Magnetic Charging setup. Comes with several different USB plugs that go into your charging port on the device. The cable then “plugs” in magnetically to the device. Keeps the charging port free of debris and you only need one cable to charge up all sorts of different devices, Iphone, Ipad, Android phone, windows tablet, etc. all with the same cable. Recommend cable with the swivel connection on the device end so you can let it hang in whatever direction gravity wants. Example is “Terasako Magnetic Charging Cable”

    Really excellent webinar. It’s amazing how much more information we have in our simple GA cockpits than when I earned my IR back in 1975. Not just the iPad, of course, but also panel avionics far eclipse the best equipped airliners of that far off time.
