When you first get your Kini, or when the Kini alerts you to the need for charge, simply plug the USB-C cable into the Kini and plug the other end of the cable into a suitable USB power supply, or a USB port on your computer. Kini can generally be fully charged in 2-3 hours.

When plugged in and charging, a red light is visible in the corner of the Kini. When this red light turns off, the Kini is fully charged.

Kini can operate as long as over a year on one charge, depending on the number of alerts that it generates and how often it is set to report its status. If the number of alerts or the status reporting time, are too frequents, then the battery life could be considerably less.

You can charge Kini while it is operating. However, initially, the Kini will go into “Calibration Mode” where it does not send you alerts, but merely flashes a light to allow you to check its sensitivity setting. This mode times out after 2 minutes of no activity and the Kini will send you an alert when it is moved next.
