First, make sure you are connecting the right pair of the connectors, the male and female connector should have the same number of pins. Then find a white spot on both the male and female connector body and fix the connectors with the spots pointing each other. Then manually screw the blue nut to secure the connection.

The connectors should fit with no play and the nut should be screwed straightly with no excessive friction.

Turn off the Rover properly

Due to the system architecture the Rover needs to be turned off the old-school style. Before you click the power button located on the battery it's better to turn off the computer at first.

To do that click upper right corner icon, wait until the Rover shuts down (WiFi network will disappear) and shut down the battery.

This way you'll extend the life of the software filesystem.

Battery charging

First, disconnect the battery from the rover. To do that, untighten 3x inner hex head screws located on the rear left side of the rover. Then slide the battery off the rover frame and disconnect the 3-pin connector.

Connect the charger provided with the Rover to AC power socket - LED located on the charger will light green.

Connect the battery to the charger and click the battery button. The charger LED will change from green to red - meaning that it's charging now.

When the battery is fully charged LED on the battery should turn back green. Turn the battery off and connect it back to the rover.

Do not click the button during charging!
