Charging Station Placement
Bob will automatically return to his charging station when low on battery. To maximize Bob’s chance of finding his station, place it in an easily accessible location with plenty of space around it.
1. Position the charging station against a wall on a hard, flat surface. If possible, avoid positioning the charging station on carpet or soft surfaces.
2. Make sure there is at least 10 feet (3 m) of open space to the front and 2 feet (0.6 m) of open space to the sides of the station.
Do not move Bob’s charging station while he is working.
Charging Bob on the Station
To charge Bob, place him on his charging station with the metal plates on his underside sitting on top of the nodes on his station. Make sure the station is plugged in.
Sending Bob to Charge
To send Bob to his charging station, double click his cover button or press the "Quick Clean" button on his remote.
Conserving Bob's Battery
Bob should not sit on his charging station for more than 5 days. If you will not be using him at least once every 5 days, turn him off and remove him from the station to conserve his battery.
To turn Bob off, push in the bumper while pressing the cover button for about 4 seconds. Release the button when you hear Bob chirp. Bob’s cover light will then turn off.
Bob will chirp once and slowly blink his cover button to let you know that he is charging. When Bob has fully charged, his cover button will stop blinking and remain solid.
