The EMOTIV Extender accessory adds even more mobility and marker accuracy to your EMOTIV headset. An essential companion product for your Insight, Flex and EPOC+ headsets, the EMOTIV Extender is a mains isolated external rechargeable battery pack with a microSD card for external storage.

Key Features:

EMOTIV Extender is a mains isolated, external rechargeable battery pack with a microSD card reader to extend battery life and enable external storage.

  • Extends headset battery: up to 12 hours
  • Mains isolation: allows headset use even while charging
  • Removable data storage: with Micro SD card reader* for offline use
  • Hardware input port: for a precise event marking
  • Onboard real-time clock: synchronized to your PC
  • Direct, isolated USB data connection: records direct to your PC as an alternative to wireless.

Modes of operation:

The extender has four modes of operation that you can choose from to best suit your needs:

  • Power-only mode extends the battery life of your headset
  • SD card recording mode allows you to record data to the Extender, rather than to a computer or mobile device
  • Pass-through mode directly records data to your computer, bypassing the wireless feature
  • USB drive mode allows you to access the data on the SD card when connected via USB.

Syncing real-time clock:

The extender has a real-time clock that is used to timestamp a recording. Before you start recording files, it is a good idea to update the RTC by syncing it to your computer using our service application, EMOTIV App.

Extended recording time:

The extender includes a 2000mAh rechargeable lithium battery which extends your EMOTIV headset’s battery life by more than 12 hours.

WARNING:

 

  • Do not open the enclosure. Doing so will void the warranty and can damage the headset.

  • Extends the battery life of the headset.
