Charging Guidelines

Only charge this device using the included Micro-USB cable connected to a computer. Do not charge using a third-party adaptor. Before use, inspect the cable to confirm that it is in good condition and that there are no breaks or exposed wires. Ensure there are no particles or liquid (water, juice, etc.) in either of the connectors before plugging at either end of the cable. The device should be completely dry with no debris in the cable connectors when charging. Plugin the cable securely, in the correct orientation. If the device is on when plugged in, a dialog box may open on your computer to allow you to access the device’s drive. Never leave the device unattended while charging. Do not charge your device on soft surfaces, as they can trap heat around thedevice. Typical charging time is between 3-4 hours if the battery is fully depleted. Disconnect the device when it is fully charged. Do not leave the device charging for more than 5 hours.

Note: The actual charging time  depends on the charging current, the existing charge and the ambient temperature of the charging environment.The optimal ambient temperature is 32°F to 104°F (0°C to 40°C).


Like with other electronic devices, the more the camera is used, the quicker the battery will drain. The battery will last approximately two hours with continuous use while taking photos and videos. With typical usage, the battery will last longer. The remaining battery capacity will display in the top right corner of the screen. When the battery level is low, recharge the battery before further use. When the battery level is too low, the camera will not turn on until it is charged.


To preserve battery life, the KidiZoom®Studio will automatically shut off after a few minutes without input. When recording videos or using the time-lapse video function, the camera will not automatically turn off until the process completes.


Charge the camera regularly to keep it operating at optimal performance, even when the camera isn’t in use. Be sure to charge the camera at least every six months.


Misuse of batteries can lead to them bursting, causing a fire or chemical burns. Please follow these precautions:

  • Do not disassemble the unit.
  • Do not crush and do not expose the battery to any shock or force such as hammering, dropping or stepping on it.
  • Do not short circuit.
  • Do not expose to high temperatures or place near a heat source.Do not leave in direct sunlight for any length of time.
  • Do not dispose of it in fire.
  • Do not handle damaged or leaking batteries.
  • Keep the battery out of the reach of children.
  • Keep the battery dry.
  • Examine the battery charging cord periodically for conditions such as damage to the output cord, housing, or other parts that may result in the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons. In the event of suchconditions, the battery charging cord should not be used until properly repaired or replaced.
  • If you find the time between charges is considerably shortened with no change in usage, the battery could be nearing the end of its life. Please dispose of the used battery as described in this manual. The battery life varies from battery to battery depending on storage, operating conditions and environment.

Some of the features of the camera use the included Green Screen cloth. Parental assistance is required to safely secure the cloth.
