How to prolong the battery life for SPRK+

Updated 5 months ago by mike moran

It is best to fully drain SPRK+ by using it until the battery is low, and then fully charge it for about 3 hours or until the blue charging indicator light stops blinking. If you repeatedly charge and play with SPRK+ for partial charges it will decrease the battery life. Keeping SPRK+ on the charger for long periods of time will not decrease battery life.

If you are going to store your SPRK+ for longer than a week, we recommend putting the robot in deep sleep by following the simple steps below: 

  1. Place SPRK+ on its plugged in charging base
  2. Press and hold the button on the side of the charging base while simultaneously lifting SPRK+ off of the base
  3. While SPRK+ is off the base, unplug the charger from the power source
  4. Your SPRK+ is now in deep sleep! 
  5. To wake, simply place SPRK+ on the charging base and plug it in
