Which batteries are compatible with the Smartgloves?

Power bank with 2A/2000mA output

Be aware

The Smartgloves does NOT come with a battery due to shipping legislation. 

You need to purchase a standard USB battery pack in order to use the Smartgloves. It should deliver at least 2A/2000mA from a single output.

Each glove needs its own power source

This can be achieved by buying 2 power banks like the ones in our "recommended batteries" list, or similar. You can also buy 1 large power bank with 2x 2A outputs.


Operation time

The capacity of the battery depends on the operation time you are seeking. You can expect around 5-6 hours of operation at 5000mA, but this can vary depending on the quality of the battery pack therefore we encourage our customers to use high-quality well-known brands. 

As a rule of thumb, for every 1000mA of battery, you will get around an hour of play time so we recommend one that is 5000mA.


If you own a Smartsuit Pro you can store the power bank in one of the pockets.

There is a pocket specifically dedicated to the power bank on the back of the Smartsuit Pro and it is designed to fit batteries around:

  1. 4.5 x 2.6 x 0.5 inches
  2. 11,5 x 6,6 x 1,3 cm

The front pocket can also hold larger batteries.
