As @stuart mentions, the Hub doesn't have a battery. You can use any standard micro-USB phone charger and plug it into the wall.
I wouldn't recommend using a battery pack, because as @stuart says, it won't last long.

RE: Flic latency with Lifx (but likely same for most smart lights?)
Yes! The dev team is currently working on integrating the LIFX LAN API. We also really think this will solve the latency issues.
We'll keep you updated!
RE: Migrate Flics From Phone To Hub?
Since a lot of actions are different from phone to hub, there is currently no way to transfer your actions, we're sorry about this!
However, I'll forward your request to the development team.
I hope it doesn't take too much time to set it up again. Thanks for your support! :)
App Updates: version 3!
Android version 3.0.1
- Added Flic Hub support
- Tasks have changed place for clarity and to leave space for the Flic Hub. You can now find Tasks under the Main menu in the top right corner of the app.
- MAJOR rebuild under the hood. Flic App will now run smoother, better and more reliably than ever.
- IKEA Trådfri Lights now works as expected
- OSRAM Lightify Lights now works better in EU
- LIFX Toggle Lights now works as expected.
- LOTS of small bug fixes and optimizations.
iOS version 3.0.0
Introducing: The Flic Hub!
The Flic Hub makes Flic even better.
Flic buttons connect with the hub directly. Your phone does not need to be around, so anyone can use the buttons at any time.
With the hub, you can have up to 63 buttons and even control your TV and Stereo over IR.
You can of course still use your Flics with your phone as usual. Your phone connected Flics now lives in the "Phones" tab.
For all the Widget users (formerly known as Tasks), you can now find your widgets under the Main menu in the top right corner of the app.
RE: Keynote and Flic
Hi! If you don't want to use Keynote, you can use Keyboard Maestro, for example, to trigger keyboard shortcuts when pressing Flic.
Or if you're a programmer, you can make your own custom scripts. Here somebody made a plugin for Powerpoint that you may find useful: https://community.flic.io/topic/17219/flic-plugin-for-powerpoint
If you can't figure it out, let me know, and I'll look into it further! :)
RE: Can't get Flic to stick to wearable clip back. Looks like the back clips into something, but no corresponding openings on Flic.
RE: Flic app (iOS) is unable to find any WEMO devices
Update: The problem seems to come from the WeMo switches and not from our side of the software. We're trying to find workarounds.
