Sphero Mini Soccer FAQUpdated 5 months ago

How is Sphero Mini Soccer different from the original Sphero Mini?

Functionally, it's the same robot. But that doesn't mean we don't have some additional goodies for you right out of the box! In addition to a fun new shell, there's also a brand new drive mode and more cones to set up obstacle courses.

So what's in the box?

Sphero Mini Soccer comes with the robot, 8 soccer obstacle cones (4 orange, 4 green), and a micro USB cable for charging.

Is Kick Drive the only drive mode Mini Soccer has?

Nope! Kick Drive is an added bonus. You're still able to use all drive modes in the Sphero Play app.

How do I know when Sphero Mini is low on battery

Sphero Mini will pulse red when it is low on battery and needs to be charged. If the battery is critically low, the Sphero Mini app will pop up a low battery warning.  Sphero Mini's battery level can also be checked in the app at any time. The battery indicator can be viewed at the top of the drive screen.

How do I reset Sphero Mini

Resetting Sphero Mini is as simple as plugging the robot into a power source, waiting a few seconds, then unplug it.
