simultaneously, the output voltage will be pre-determined
by the input voltage. (eg. In this case, if a 16v charger is
being used, the powergorilla will only output 16v) If your
device requires lower voltage, disconnect from the mains
and continue charging the device with the powergorilla. If

notebook’s AC mains charger to charge the powergorilla
and device at the same time.
