The Iristick product line is compatible with most Android 7 (or higher) smartphones having a USB type C connector with Host mode enabled. We strongly advise the use of Android 8. We try to follow the standards of the USB protocols. However, with so many Android devices on the market, it is impossible to test all. There are always manufacturers who implement hardware or software in their way.

Supported smartphones

Some smartphones have their USB implemented in such a way that they support both power- and data transfer. This makes it possible to charge the smartphone along with the Iristick (while charging the pocket unit) while in use. Just leave the smartphone connected (and powered on) to the pocket unit and charge with the barrel jack adapter. This makes it convenient for developers, for example.

A general rule is that this is possible for smartphones that have an implementation of Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ or USB Power Delivery. Otherwise, it is either of one: charging the smartphone together with the pocket unit or using it with the Iristick.

Please note that the smartphone should not be much wider than about 76 mm and not taller than about 160 mm to fit in both the case and pouch. Also note the phone's battery capacity. We advise a capacity of at least 2800mAh or more for 4.5 hours of continuous use.

The following list of devices can be charged together with the pocket unit if the smartphone is attached via USB after the pocket unit is plugged in. As these devices lack any form of Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ or USB Power Delivery, the Iristick will not work while both the smartphone and the pocket unit are being charged together.
