How to use the MSRvXXX cables?

Along with the MSRvXXX device you received, you will find two USB cables, or only one cable (for MSRv008 device only as it is connecting via Bluetooth) and you may wonder what they are used for. Please see below pictures to distinguish them and learn about their usage.

 

The cable in Image 1 is used to charge the battery of the MSRvXXX devices using any USB port. It charges until the battery is fully charged and automatically stops when required. It does not work on a timer therefore will not damage your battery. One part of the cable is plugged into any powered USB port and the other part will be plugged into the battery. We ship MSRv008 with this cable.

The cable in Image 2 is used to charge the battery of the MSRvXXX devices using any USB port. It charges until the battery is fully charged and automatically stops when required. It does not work on a timer therefore will not damage your battery. 

One part of the cable is plugged into any powered USB port and the other part will be plugged into the MSRvXXX reader. During the charging a led on the cable will turn on to indicate that it is charging the battery and will turn off when the battery is fully charged.

We ship MSRv007, MSRv009, MSRv010 and CRFv10 with this cable for you to charge the battery.

Note:

  • The bluetooth readers (MSRv008) cannot use this cable.
  • While charging, the MSRvXXX cannot be used to read any cards.
