SmartCap Processor Cards (SP Cards) contain rechargeable Lithium-ion coin cell battery which provide 4-7 hours of battery life during normal use.
An SP Card can be recharged in the side of a SmartCap Display or in one of the three powered docks of a SmartCap Base Unit. Once docked, the red light on the SP Card will illuminate when it is charging.
A full charge takes approximately 90 minutes, however can take longer if the SP Card has been drained or shelved for a long time.
