Can I charge an iPad with the Structure Sensor by using the smart-connector


#1

hi, guys.

i use iPad Pro (9.7inch) to develop VR apps with Structure Sensor.
However, i faced one big problem: since the USB charge port of iPad Pro is occupied by the sensor itself, I can’t charge iPad while using the sensor.

Therefore, my QUESTION is: Can I charge iPad Pro with the Structure Sensor by using Smart-Connector like logi BASE.

If I can use this smart-connect charger, I can charge iPad even while using the structure-sensor.

Thx.

@blue0513, the best way to charge both is to use our Power Adaptor Pro, which will pass power from the Structure Sensor to the iPad. Structure Sensor does not accept power from the lightning cable.

@markpi , thx for your reply. I see! the Power Adaptor Pro seems to be good.

Structure Sensor does not accept power from the lightning cable

i thought, even when the sensor was less charged and connected to the iPad via lightning cable, the sensor could work as well because the iPad could pass power to the sensor via lightning cable.

is it not true?

This is not true. Structure Sensor is powered via the internal battery, or a power adaptor through the barrel jack on the side of the sensor, or via the USB Hacker Cable.
