The emergence of Appareo’s certified line of power products
was born from experiences with our popular line of Stratus ADS-B receivers. Our customers were worried and concerned for their safety when they began experiencing NAV/COM noise from radio interference caused by their cheap charging electronics. As tablets and smartphones have become more power hungry, customers have been frustrated by their USB chargers being unable to recharge their devices while they are in use.
Unfortunately, FAA-certified power chargers were hard for our customers to find at a reasonable price. Appareo began developing, certifying, and deploying power chargers to ensure our customers would have affordable, safe, and reliable access to their EFBs — and ADS-B weather and traffic information from Stratus receivers — while flying.
