How To Charge Your aibo

There are a few ways to charge your aibo when its battery is running low. You can use the charging station or the charging stand. If you’re home, set up your charging station in an appropriate place and your aibo will walk around to find it when its battery is getting low. You can also put aibo on the charging station yourself. Just place your aibo into sleep mode by briefly pressing the power button on the back of its neck and lay down your aibo on the charging station. When your aibo’s battery is charged to 95% or more, the status LED will turn green. Your aibo also will wake up and stretch when they are fully charged.

How To Care For aibo When Leaving Home

If you’re only leaving home for a short period of time, there’s no need to turn off your aibo, but it’s recommended that you put it in sleep mode to avoid aibo bumping something or falling. Place your aibo into sleep mode by briefly pressing the power button on the back of its neck. If you leave aibo for a long period of time (like for vacation or a business trip), it’s recommended to turn off your aibo and keep it in a place without direct sunlight and where the temperature isn't too high or low.
