We recommend that you charge the Geode with the cable and wall charger that it was sent with, which has been spec'd specifically to fully charge the Geode. Charging through a USB port on a computer may not provide an adequate amount of power to charge the device.
If you use other cables and chargers you should consider the following. Wall chargers need to be a 2 Amp (or higher) 5 Volt charger. The cable may be a bit more difficult. The specs are 28 AWG / 1P + 24 AWG / 2C. You can try an off the shelf cable, and it may or may not give a complete charge to the Geode. Off the shelf cables sometimes don’t carry a current sufficient enough to fully charge the Geode.
The best comparison we can give is this (Off the shelf = Garden hose, Our cable = Firehose for charging). If your original cable is damaged or lost we carry replacements on our online store.
If a Geode will not charge, try plugging it in overnight, even if no signs of life.
