GoDaddy Poynt Smart Terminal Help

How long is the battery life for my GoDaddy smart terminal?

The GoDaddy smart terminal provides up to 8-9 hours of continuous battery life, depending on usage.

Several factors can affect battery life. The more the smart terminal is used while disconnected from a power source, the faster battery life will deplete. This is especially true when using the printer. Other factors include:

  • Transaction volume
  • Printer usage
  • Screen brightness
  • Device sleep settings

Check your current battery life

The battery status is displayed in the top-right corner of the smart terminal screen. Swipe down from the top of the screen to see your battery percentage.

Optimize battery life

  • Keep your battery charged. Keep your smart terminal plugged in when it’s not in use. If you’re using a docking station, make sure that the docking station is plugged in and that the bottom of the smart terminal is properly aligned with the charging pins. The battery status in the top right corner will indicate that the smart terminal is charging.
  • Adjust the brightness of the screen. The brighter the screen, the faster the battery will drain. Change the brightness by swiping down from the top of the screen twice and adjusting the brightness slider Brightness slider.
  • Turn on Power Save Mode (Smart Terminal Flex only). Swipe down twice from the top of the screen. Tap Power Save to make a plus mark appear. This will disable certain background services and apps when the terminal screen is off if the device isn’t charging
  • Offer SMS and email receipt options. Printing receipts takes a lot of power. You can give the customer the option of paperless receipts and even disable paper receipts.
