Charging and battery

Your Air lasts for over 500 transactions on one full charge and can be used while charging via a Micro-USB cable.

Standby mode automatically preserves your battery during periods of inactivity without breaking the connection with other devices. Turn the Air off by holding down the power button on the side of the reader.

Avoid blocked readers

The Air has an automatic security lock that will permanently block the device to prevent manipulation or tampering. Battery life is shown in the corner of the Air’s screen.

This lock can be triggered by extreme temperatures or forcible impacts. To avoid this, try to avoid temperatures above 40ºC or below 0ºC and don't drop your device.
