Charging the Device

We suggest keeping the device charging when not in use. It is best to keep the device charged instead of letting the battery run out.

The GPS 4 device is charged with a magnetic charger. It takes about 2 hours to recharge the battery. The device automatically powers on when it is plugged in.

To charge the battery:

  1. Connect one side of the USB charging cable to the wall charger and the magnetic connector to the device.
  2. Charge the device near a window with good cellular reception, so that data can be regularly transmitted to the app. While connecting, the relevant LED blinks.
  3. Ensure that the device is charging:
    • The red LED light on the device will blink and when fully charged it will stay on.
    • You will hear an audible voice say “device is charging” when you plug it in.
    • The battery in the app status bar should be green with a lightning bolt by it.

Note:

The device’s charging port is not under warranty.

The AngelSense Guardian GPS 1 device is charged with a standard USB charger. It takes about 4 hours to recharge the battery. The device automatically powers on when it is plugged in.

 

To charge the battery:

  • Connect one side of the USB charging cable to the wall charger and the small connector to the Guardian device.  (The bottom side of the connector has an arrow drawn on it.)
  • Charge the device near a window with good cellular reception, so that data can be regularly transmitted to the app.
  • Ensure that the device is charging:
    • When the device is charging, the device’s blue LED stays on (not blinking).

  • Additionally, you can check the status bar in your app after a few minutes. When the device is charging, the lightning bolt appears next to the battery, and the battery is colored green.

 

In app version 1.7.0 and higher, the status bar is as below

 

Note:

*GPS 1 devices with device tracker version of G4A.EY.016 and above can enable the power button from the app in the web version only for now.
