      • Settings -> General -> Bluetooth
    • Turn on Bluetooth.  Wait for the device to detect Sphero.

      • Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Bluetooth

This will clear the Bluetooth cache and should allow Sphero to connect.

Charging Sphero: How-to and Best Practices ?

Sphero comes with his very own induction charger.  When his battery runs low, you can revive him heavy side down in the charger. To find his heavy side, place him on a hard surface like a table. Sphero will naturally settle with this sweet spot at the bottom. Remove any covers from Sphero and pop him in the charger in this position. The charger will blink blue when charging begins.  After about 3 hours, the blue light becomes solid and Sphero is ready to roll. He will play at top speed for up to 60 minutes before he needs another rest.

Feel free to leave Sphero plugged in and on his charging base for extended periods of time. 

IMPORTANT SAFETY TIP:  DO NOT PLACE ANY OBJECTS IN THE SPHERO CHARGER OTHER THAN SPHERO.  PLACING COINS OR METAL OBJECTS INTO THE CHARGER COULD CAUSE THE METAL OBJECTS TO HEAT AND BURN ON CONTACT.  

EXAMINE SPHERO AND THE CHARGER FOR SIGNS OF DEFORMATION OR MELTING.  IF ANY SIGNS ARE DETECTED - CEASE USE AND RETURN TO SPHERO FOR REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT. 

Is Sphero waterproof?

Sphero is waterproof up to 5m or 15ft. He will actually float on top of water. 

Please note that water can interfere with your Bluetooth connection which can cause a drop in connection.

Fun little gadget for the person who has everything. I particularly enjoy chasing my chihuahuas around the house with it. After reading the pros and cons in previous reviews, I was skeptical. However, I have to say I am not at all disappointed with this purchase.

My son got this Sphero for Christmas and loves it. It has been very durable for what my son has put it through (banging into chairs and rolling in dust bunnies). He has only tried a few of the apps, but it appears there are quite a few to choose from. Some are free and others have a minimal charge.
This small bit of entertainment was well worth the price!
