Dear community, I just got my PowerConf and I guess I need to send out a warning. If you are looking for a similar usecase like I did: Do not buy it. It will not work for you.
What did I want? I wanted a speaker / mic solution for conference calls for my computer and my mobile phone. When I work from home.
The device should be able to be connected to my computer AND my mobile phone at the same time. So I can either enter a phone conference on my computer with it or take a call from my mobile.
This does not work with my PowerConf. I can connect it to my computer. Either via Bluetooth or via cable. Yes, this works. However it is not possible to connect any other device (e.g. my mobile phone) via Bluetooth, when the computer is connected via Bluetooth. Several test of this item write about Multipoint but mine does not seem to have it. At my PowerConf only one device can be connected via Bluetooth at the time.
This does not make any sense for my intended case. If my computer is connected via Bluetooth and I get a call on my mobile I will manually have to connect my mobile phone before taking the call. By pushing the Bluetooth button on the PowerConf and connecting via my mobile phone’s setting. Seriously: This is shit.
I could still somehow life with that if the PowerConf would allow me to connect it to the computer via USB cable and to my mobile phone via USB at the same time. Will it pretents to do so - both show connected when I check it - it is impossible to take calls from my mobile on the speaker when it is connected to the computer via USB at the same time. The green light is flashing when a call comes in but the button to accept the call does not lead to any reaction. And even if I take the call manually on my phone it is impossible to switch speakers to the Bluetooth PowerConf via the phone’s settings. It always immediately jumps back.
Did I do anything wrong? If not and if you are - like me - looking for a speaker / mic solution that can deal with more than one device at the same time: Run!
