While electronics are changing all the time, there are two standard charging specs that devices adhere to; a CTIA standard charge output which most devices follow, and an Apple charge output which Apple products follow. The BOLT is designed to switch modes, allowing for the most efficient charging of all devices regardless of which charging mode they require. When the BOLT's LED button is green, this indicates that it is in CTIA or Normal charging output mode. To switch modes, simply hold down the button for 5 seconds and release. The button will then light up blue, indicating that it is now in a mode optimized for Apple products like the iPad, iPhone, and iPod. Heat and chemistry;
