5. Charge Hövding for at least 24 hours

Use the included USB cable (USB-C 2.0) and a USB charger (adapter) in a wall socket. Make sure Hövding’s back LED flashes or shines green when it is connected and let it charge for at least 24 hours. (Try a different USB charger if the back LED flashes red or does not light up at all)

NOTE: Your Hövding can be charged normally going forward – about 2–3 hours for a full charge. (Try repeating the 24-hour charging if the issue returns)
