Playermaker sensors' battery performance, explained (Hardware Versions 1.3 & 1.4)

The only way to charge your Playermaker sensors is by plugging your USB-A to USB-C charging cable into the bottom of your Playermaker case (with both sensors inside) and into a power source. When your case is not plugged into the charger, then your sensors will go into IDLE or rest mode. It is important to know that in IDLE or rest mode, your sensor's battery will slowly lose charge

Charging facts, tips, and recommendations:

  1. Charge your sensors after each performed activity.
  2. It takes approximately 3-4 hours to fully charge your Playermaker sensors from zero battery
  3. Charging your sensors for an extended period of time (a few days) will not affect your sensors' battery performance or short circuit your battery.
  4. You can manually turn your sensors off to preserve the battery life. See this article to learn how to correctly turn your sensors off and on.
  5. If your sensors die or are manually turned off while you are performing an activity, then your session data will be permanently deleted
  6. Playermaker sensors' operating temperature ranges between 0-40 degrees Celsius (32-100 Fahrenheit). Operating in temperatures outside this range might affect the battery performance.
