One of the bests around, and brilliant customer service. 

It is better to turn off a laptop before charging. That is because some laptops need a large current when operating.

It is best to charge a large battery that is compatible with this of a laptop.

With larger voltages this product will reduce the voltage drop. So the large voltage would not damage the smaller devices.
