charging cable from Pebble reusable?

Posted on
  • Hi,

    my Bangle arrived today and the charging cable looks very close to the ones I used with my Pebble.
    But before blindly connecting I figured I'd ask the question;
    Is it OK try try a Pebble cable and is there a diode or anything else in the watch dealing with the possibility of connecting the cable the wrong way around?

  • Hi - yes, there is reverse protection - in fact the default charger can be connected the wrong way around and it's fine (it just doesn't charge!).

  • Regarding charging: if you have battery widget and bluetooth status display, as soon as charging stops while a watch is displayed you see one and a half bluetooth signs...

  • @Gordon thanks, appreciated.

    On the pebble cable, it only looked similar, physically it's different enough to not adhere.
    Ah well it was worth a try.

  • Well, I have a charging stand for my pebble that I can't use anymore because the battery is dead :-/
    I was already able to remove the charging part from the stand, and the BangleJS should fit just fine - just need to add the cabling ;-)
    Did someone figure out already how the charging cable of the BangleJS is connected?

  • Did someone figure out already how the charging cable of the BangleJS is connected?

    Pretty sure it's straight through - one pin is GND, one pin is 5v

    I bought a bunch extra so I'll be listing spares on the shop soon if they are needed for anything
