Quite frequently, we’ll get a user request that sounds something like this:
“I’d like to use Structure Sensor with an iPad for an extended period of time. I know I can keep the Structure Sensor charged with its power adapter, but how do I keep my iPad charged if the Structure Sensor is communicating via the Lightning port?”
Until now the answer was, “Sorry, that’s not possible.” Now, that has changed. With the launch of Power Adapter Pro, we’ve solved this problem with an elegant solution.
When you connect the new Power Adapter Pro to your Structure Sensor, it engages hidden charging logic that allows your Structure Sensor to charge itself while simultaneously sending charge to a connected iOS device via the Lightning cable.
Not only does it allow for installations and uses where both Structure Sensor and a connected iOS device need constant power, it also reduces cable clutter and saves space by charging two devices while only using one outlet. Check out the video below to see Power Adapter Pro in action:
Power Adapter Pro is available today at the Structure Sensor accessories store for most sensors sold after October 15, 2015 (sensors sold before this date are not compatible).
