Will the USB input on the back of the KMC 3 both play and charge my portable music device?
Last Updated 5 years ago
The KMC 3’s USB input will only charge most portable music devices using the cord that came with the particular device. Music devices without a Bluetooth feature can be played on the KMC 3 by connecting a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cord between the device’s headphone output and the KMC 3’s 3.5mm input on the rear, then changing the KMC 3 to its 3.5mm input. USB charging occurs when the KMC 3 is on either AC or battery power but NOTE that charging a device while the KMC 3 is running on battery power will significantly shorten battery life. We recommend only charging your device for a short time period and only when absolutely needed when the KMC 3 is on battery power.
