Can I use another cable and adapter for my POWER UP charging dock?

Yes, you can, but we highly recommend using the cable and power adapter that came with your BLAST and MEGABLAST. You cannot use a micro USB cable and only connect to your computer for power. There is not enough power from your computer’s USB to power the dock (POWER UP). 

Can I connect my POWER UP charging dock to a computer or laptop to charge my speaker?

We highly recommend using the power adapter that came with your BLAST and MEGABLAST. Charging from a computer or laptop will result in your speaker not charging at all.
