How long does the iota's battery last?

The iota's battery is expected to last approximately one month and rechargeable for 200+ cycles.  Using features like Live Track, location pings, and sound alerts cause the battery to drain faster. Check out tips for improving battery life in our Performance Tips page.

    Should I wait until the iota battry is completely drained before recharging? Will recharging the battery before it is completely dead cause a reduction in capacity?

    Do you suggest one way to save on battery is by simply powering it off when my pet is inside?

    Hi Pamela,

    Thanks for the great questions! Recharging the battery before it is drained will not result in any noticeable decrease in capacity. Feel free to recharge it whenever you feel like it.

    The iota is essentially in "standby" mode when you are not locating, so it is not consuming any battery. I would definitely NOT recommend powering it off because this may result in some unexpected behavior when you first power it back on.

    Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything else I can help you with!
