Charging time for canary flex


I just bought a new canary flex and is charging it straight out of the box and is not putting it on surveillance mode (meaning I am facing the camera to the black wall to prevent it from recording and setting the sensitivity to the lowest form).

However, after plugging in the power cord to the flex for more than 24 hours, the app still shows that the battery power is only half bar when i disconnect the power cord.

Is this the norm? Or do I need to charge it even longer?


Hey @hamhamchan, it should only take between four to six hours to fully charge Canary Flex from 0%.

Currently, it can take a few minutes for the app’s battery icon to update to reflect the real charge. Could you check the app to see if that’s the case here?
