The Atli-2 Emergency Charger will charge the N3 or N3Audio if you need a quick charge before a skydive.
A male mini-USB cable is included to fit the N3 and the N3Audio (as well as certain mobile phones, for instance). The emergency charger operates with either an AA Alkaline battery or an AA Lithium battery (longer use). The battery is not included. A standard alkaline AA battery will fully charge your N3 twice.
The Alti-2 Emergency Charger is available in black only from ChutingStar.
It is small, portable, and easy to use (a red diode on the top end of the device will indicate when the charger is charging). This is a perfect skydiving present and a practical companion on the DZ for any skydiver jumping the N3 or N3Audio. Please note that if your N3 or N3Audio battery is completely empty you should plug in the emergency charger and bring the unit back to life BEFORE you take off.

Quality Durability Price
I use rechargeable AA batteries instead of regular alkaline batteries. Although Alti-2 states that one fully charged standard alkaline AA battery can fully charge a N3 twice, I find that one AA will charge the N3 only once.
-The LED is next to the cable port is convenient to know that the unit is still charging.
-Good to have even if a friend has a low batter on his/her altimeter.
-Despite the housing being made from aluminum, the top part is plastic which can be removed pretty easily which could cause the threads to strip.
NOTE: The bottom should be removed to replace the battery! Sounds like a "no-brainer" but the top can be removed easily. (Posted on 8/14/13)
