The rechargeable battery of the Ion Edge iis long lasting and provides up to 15+ hrs (3+ rounds of golf typically) on a charge. However, battery life may be reduced due to a variety of factors (external temperature, etc). All rechargeable batteries lose their effective charge length over time.

To check your remaining battery life, select “Battery” from the SETTINGS menu. To recharge the battery, plug the (standard) USB plug to your computer or other charging port. Set the Ion Edge on top of the magnetic charging pins. If the battery is charging successfully, you will see the sections of circle around the battery symbol blink (see below). The Ion Edge is compatible with all USB ports, including iPhone/other smartphone USB chargers. Once connected, tap the battery icon and the display will show the battery icon charging.
