I think they may be referring to that it can be used to charge other items, used as power bank


Reverse charging capability: With the Reverse Charging (RC) adapter, the Eleaf Invoke will convert the 510 connection into a USB output for power bank mode, providing power to your cell phone or other e-cig device.




I wouldn't use to charge phone or other items personally but could come in handy I guess in an emergency


Need to buy SKU 6962200 to use as power bank though

Authentic Eleaf Pico Dual Avatar Reverse Charging Adapter

Try using a power-only lead with the data pins shorted.

They're still talking about using the mod as a power bank instead of charging one from a power bank. The Innokin MVP V3 had a cable and a connector built in for use as a power bank so you didn't have to add an accessory to the 510 connector. It has nothing to do with your original question.

There are two possibilities for your issue: either your power bank isn't providing an output your mod likes (voltage out of range altogether, or a ramping curve that puts the voltage out of range initially so the mod doesn't recognise you're trying to charge, so no connection ever gets made for charging voltage to be raised by the power bank), or the power bank doesn't like the way your mod responds to attempts to give it power (current out of range on initial connection). Either way, it's just a matter of two devices that don't want to play together because each has a different idea of how to approach the safety question.
