Charging Cradle Compatibility

Sara Sampson Updated by Sara Sampson

The Sphero BOLT charging cradle is specifically designed to be compatible with BOLT only because the battery capacity of BOLT is higher than previous Sphero models, and therefore the charging system works differently from previous robots. It is not dangerous to place BOLT in other charging cradles from SPRK+, SPRK Edition, Sphero 2.0, or Sphero Original models, but it's not recommended as the robot will not properly charge. Previous Sphero robot models likewise should not be used with the BOLT charging cradle - we strongly recommend always using the charging cradle that was included with your Sphero robot at the time of purchase.
