Our goal with MCR-EVO was to do the impossible: engineer a full-size experience into the smallest and most compact MCR ever. That meant reengineering every element to make it not only smaller and thinner but also better from every point of view. The result is more than just a new MCR. It’s the most reliable MCR so far. And now, with a very fast processor, improved reading performance, faster and bigger memory storage, and the smallest controlled power consumption, the MCR-EVO is truly the best magnetic stripe card reader on the market.

This means that it can be powered with 2 very small 1.5V watch batteries, and also from a 5V USB socket for continuous power.

The battery can be charged directly through the USB connector adapter, and also indicates with a green led when the battery is fully charged.

Data saved into the memory is verified that it has been saved correctly. This prevents data loss like sometimes happens to other devices on the market.

All you have to do is turn the device ON and let it work until the battery discharge. After that just connect the device to the new software, and you can see for how many minutes it worked before.
