Use the included USB cable to charge your ShotKam Gen 3. Plug the mini-B end of the cord into the back of the camera (twist-off the cover), then the USB-A end into a computer, wall adapter, or a car USB port.
Important: Do not plug the ShotKam into a Smart TV. You must plug the ShotKam into a computer, then the computer into a Smart TV.
Lost the USB cable?
You can use any USB cord that fits into the ShotKam as they universally convert the input voltage to 5V. Specs of the USB cable: USB-A to Mini-B cable
Charging LED sequences:
= Flashing means charging
= Solid means fully charged
The LED will stay solid red once fully charged. Always leave it on charge for at least 3 hours, or overnight before going shooting. Keeping your ShotKam plugged in will not damage the battery.
Note: The ShotKam automatically turns off when charging, so you cannot charge it and record videos at the same time.
