Additional Information

Battery and Charging

Lithium Ion (aka Li-Polymer)

  • Battery will operate at 20° – 116° Fahrenheit. Temperatures to either extreme can cause issues with the battery life and even cause a rupture or ignition in extreme cases.
  • A Lithium Ion battery has a lifespan of 500 complete charges within 3-4 years. We do not currently have a program in place around battery replacement or servicing, but we may create one in the future if needed and feasible.

The unit will take about 3-4 hours to obtain a full charge. Once fully charged, the charge should last up to 8 hours in continuous Play mode.


On the Menu screen or in Pause mode, the player will hibernate after 2 minutes of non-use.

Hibernation Mode
The player will go into Hibernation mode for a 24-hour period from the last power-on to provide a convenient instant-on experience for the user.

Power Cord

One power cord is included in each package. Other compatible power adapters with a mini-USB port will also work.

  • For sanitation, a damp sanitizing wipe can safely be used on the screen and body of the unit.
  • To simply clean fingerprints, we recommend using a micro cloth.
