Baattery Pack Policy and Use Guidelines

Here are the guidelines that govern Jackery battery pack checkout and use at the College of Charleston.

There are only 10 Jackery battery packs available and they take 7 hours to charge from completely empty.

Jackery battery packs are available for checkout by College of Charleston students, faculty and staff only with a valid Cougar Card.

Only one Jackery battery pack can be checkout by an individual at a time.

Users “must” have their own charger and/or cable.

Jackery battery packs are checked out at the Circulation desk, other accessories such as chargers and cables may be checked out separately, if available.

Library Circulation department will loan the Jackery battery packs to individuals for 2hour library use only.

By checking out the Jackery battery pack, the individual will be responsible for any theft of or damage to the device while checked out to that individual.

By checking out the Jackery battery pack, the individual will be responsible for any theft of or damage to their own device that may have resulted from use of the Jackery battery pack.(Use at your own risk.)

Jackery battery packs must be returned to a staff member at the Circulation desk during their hours of operation.  Jackery battery packs may not be left on the counter or placed in the book drop as the individual will be charged for any/all damage to the Jackery battery pack until it is checked in at Circulation.

Please turn the Jackery battery pack off while not in use to preserve battery life. This also means you need to turn it on to use.

Library Circulation department will check Jackery battery packs upon return and any/all fees assessed.

Important information

Please contact the Circulation department circle@cofc.edu , 843.953.8001 or return the Jackery battery pack if you experience any problems.

Student Computing Support staff can provide limited Jackery battery pack support, users will be referred to Student Computing Support room 101 if needed.

Jackery battery packs with a charge of 50% or less will not be loaned so that they can be charged. 

Jackery battery packs are “not” a replacement for an AC wall outlet.  This is a temporary solution until you can use a wall outlet. The battery is supposed to charge a laptop up to 50% while the laptop is in use and 70% if the laptop is idle.

If you are charging a newer device such as the new MacBook Airs that use USB-C, please use the USB-C jack on the Jackery battery pack and a USB-C cable instead of an AC/USB-C adapter.

Please turn the Jackery battery pack off while not in use to preserve battery life. This also means you need to turn it on to use.

The Jackery battery packs take 7 hours to charge from completely empty.
