You may also drop pictures, documents, spreadsheets etc into its internal memory for safe keeping.
The in-built AGC (automatic gain control) adjusts the voice level to accommodate close up recording and distance recording without audio distortion and in our test with a software program called 'Boom 2' installed from the App Store, was capable of picking up audio some 30 feet away from where the Powerbank had been placed.
For convenient deployment the Powerbank has a removable magnet which sits flush on the underside of the device so it can be attached to metal areas.
TIME AND DATE STAMP
The supplied software for Windows computers is a very easy-to-use program which allows you to sync the correct time and date to the Powerbank so that you know exactly when each audio file commenced. This can help to resolve disputes by providing an accurate timeframe or just for memory recap when playing back audio files.

VOICE ACTIVATION & CONTINUOUS RECORDING MODES
Flick the switch to selectively choose between recording modes:
- Voice Activated Recording - place the Powerbank within a room or vehicle environment and monitor activity for up to 150 days!
- Continuous Recording - ideal if you do not wish to have any breaks in recording. Place the Powerbank in the area of concern and record for 14 days straight.
The Powerbank Battery Pack can withstand close visual examination and for peace of mind there are No LED's, No beeps or sounds during recording.
SOUND AND SVOS LEVEL SETTING
These new features allow you to adjust the audio quality between XHQ (extra high quality) and HQ (high quality) but also to adjust the microphone sensitivity. The lower setting (HQ) will draw less power when recording and is best suited to smaller, confined areas. The higher XHQ setting is best suited to larger rooms. Please note these features can only be adjusted with the supplied software for Windows users.
