There are two ways to know the battery status of your Jamstik
1. Check your status within the Jamstik app or Web Play Portal
When connected to the Jamstik Control App, Learning Portal for Jamstik app, or Web Learning Portal for Jamstik, there's a battery icon next to the device's name. When the battery status becomes low, the icon will change from blue to black.
2. Check the LED indicator light
