Included with the Iridium 9575 Extreme® are two adapters. These adapters attach to the bottom of your phone and are required for charging, connecting the USB data cable, or using the external antenna. These adapters are designed to provide a robust and flexible approach to using external accessories with the Iridium Extreme®.
IMPORTANT: The Charging / USB / External Antenna adapter (with External Antenna Connector) should only be used if you are planning to connect an external antenna. While this adapter is connected, the use of your phone’s internal antenna will temporarily be suspended.
Charging and USB
This adapter is to be used for charging the phone or connecting to a laptop via USB data cable when the phone’s antenna is used.
Charging, USB, and Antenna
This adapter is to be used for charging the phone or connecting to a laptop via USB data cable when a wired, external antenna is used. This adapter provides a TNC connector that is compatible with the included 5’ external antenna.
Installing the adapters on the Iridium Extreme
In order to charge, use the USB port, or connect an external antenna, the appropriate adapter must first be selected and attached to the bottom of the phone.
Prior to installation, open your phone’s accessory connector cover on the bottom of your phone and move it to the back of your phone, securing it to the rear retaining features.
Select the appropriate adapter and orient it with the bottom of the phone so the Iridium brand is facing forward. Then press the adapter up until the side clasps are locked into place and the adapter is securely fastened to your phone.
