A word about low-power modes

When left idling longer, it will shut the display down completely to further improve power consumption.

First charge
Connect the wireless charging pad to a computer or an USB charger. Your computer might complain that it didn't recognize the new USB device but don't worry, it is only a charger and naive.

Remove the armband and strap from your device then place it on the charging pad, strap side down.

Devices with an identifier under 2800 need to be offset to the left of the charger. A simple way to get it right each time is to have the left edge of the device touch the outer edge of the charging pad.
Devices with an identifier over 2800 need to be placed on the center of the charger.

Once charging, the display's bottom right icon will become a thunderbolt and the charging pad's own LED will become blue.

A full charge takes 3 hours and yields around 36 hours of use-time. Never leave the device unattended whilst connected to a charger or a computer.
