How do I charge my Kobo Arc?

Charging your Kobo Arc

You can always see how much charge your Kobo Arc has from the battery icon at the top of the screen. If you see a red light beside the power button, it means your battery is low and you should charge it immediately. You can use your Kobo Arc as you normally would while it’s charging.

Note: You won’t be able to set up your Kobo Arc if it isn’t at least 10% charged.

Always use the included wall charger to charge your Kobo Arc; it may not charge at all or charge very slowly if you use a computer and USB cable (not included).

A thunderbolt symbol within the battery icon means that your Kobo Arc is charging: you’ll also see an orange light beside the power button.

You can tell at a glance how much power your Kobo Arc has with the Battery icon.
