Drawing on its heritage of products with long-lasting battery life, GizmoPal features a 400 mAh battery. The device will sound a notification and notifies the GizmoPal app when the battery is low and needs to be charged. A red LED light changes to green when the device is fully charged. The GizmoPal app is compatible with smartphones and tablets with Android 4.0 or higher and iOS 7 or higher.
