Does the USB type connector in the battery pack have any cord on it? Because most battery packs are dual connectors. I was just wondering if there is any slack in the cable that can be used to maneuver the jack to the bottom or top jack of the battery pack.
Although the batteries are equipped with two connectors I've been told both cannot be used at the same time. (DON'T USE A Y ADAPTER to connect both sockets).
One connector has a 2.4 amp output capacity, the other something less. Be sure to connect the battery to the 2.4 amp socket.
So here is my fix. 1' USB extension cable stored in battery compartment when not in use. 2 rubber bands securing cover and battery (inside of cover facing up as it makes a nice cradle for the battery) to fixed base. Rubber bands positioned to clear fixed base rubber feet so base doesn't rock. All unnecessary if Maestro cable were an inch longer.
