How to unbox and charge your new aibo


There are a few ways to charge your aibo. 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. See more in our Unboxing & Setup Guide.
