Charging the player's batteryUpdated 2 months ago

How to charge your player using the dock (Yoto Player), USB-C cable (Yoto Player 3rd Generation and Yoto Mini), USB-C Smart Cable (Yoto Minis manufactured between 2021 and 2023) or wireless dock (Yoto Player 3rd Generation).

Please take a few minutes to review our Product Safety page.

How to charge Yoto Player (2nd generation) using the dock

Yoto Player comes with a clever magnetic charging dock that easily snaps into place when the player is placed on top of it. There will be a sticky paper label to protect the puck - please remove this before sitting the Player on its dock.

When plugged into a wall socket that is turned on, the dock will charge your Player whether it is switched on or off. Please note that the battery indicator on the display currently needs the player to be switched on and docked for at least 30 seconds before it will indicate "fully charged".


How to charge Yoto Mini using the USB-C cable

Yoto Mini comes with a USB-C charging cable, so you can charge Yoto Mini in the car and everywhere and (hopefully) never run out of juice. 

Owners of Yoto Minis manufactured between 2021 and 2023 must only charge using the USB-C Smart Cable available here. What is the smart Cable?

The charging port is on the right-hand side of your Yoto Mini, underneath the on/off button. When the cable is plugged into a wall socket that is turned on, your player will charge whether it is switched on or off.

Yoto Mini requires a minimum 5V/1A/5W charger to operate. 


How to charge Yoto Player (3rd Generation)

Yoto Player (3rd Generation) comes with a USB-C charging cable, so you can charge it in the car and everywhere and (hopefully) never run out of juice. Or you can use our clever magnetic wireless charging dock (sold separately) that easily snaps into place when the player is placed on top of it. You can find out more details about charging here.

The type of charging adapter or wireless charger you use will determine the battery charge time, some charge faster than others.
