I have an Android or Windows Phone smartphone, when will you make the Micro USB version?

What kind of batteries can I use with Oivo?
Oivo accepts any kind of AA batteries. Be it regular alkaline, Lithium or rechargeable NiCd and NiMH.
Can I use AAA instead of AA batteries?
Yes you can also use AAA batteries, but they are not meant to provide such a high current (1 amp), so their efficiency will be lower.
Are batteries harmful for the environment?
Batteries don’t contain hazardous or toxic materials and can be disposed as a regular domestic waste. However, we don’t want you to charge your iPhone every day with Oivo. So when you do it, please charge it as much as you really need and reuse the batteries to power your home devices (TV remotes, clocks…)
Will Oivo’s magnets damage my iPhone or wipe out my credit card?
No way! Oivo’s neodymium magnets are 100% safe. They won’t damage your phone or wipe out your credit cards.
How fast does it charge?
Oivo charges the iPhone as fast as a regular AC charger. That is with 1 amp.
How much can I charge my Iphone with one set of batteries?

Is Oivo waterproof?
Oivo is splash proof. Rain and spilled water won’t do it any harm.
Is Oivo using official Apple Lightning connectors?
Yes, we’ve developed Oivo under the Apple MFi licence and it will also be manufactured by a company that is licensed as an Apple MFi Manufacturer.
Can you charge the iPhone with a cover?
