The Harry Potter Coding Kit uses 2 x AAA batteries. Your kit will come with two included!
When it's time to replace the batteries, we strongly recommend using a high-quality battery from a manufacturer such as Energizer, Duracell, Panasonic, or Eveready. You should change both batteries at the same time for best performance. Do not mix old and new batteries.

Can I use rechargeable AAA batteries in my Coding Wand?
Yes, we recommend using 1100 mAh AAA rechargeable batteries. With these rechargeable batteries, you can expect up to 1 month of standby time, and 4 uninterrupted days of play for a full charge! This may vary based on your use of the product. 🔋
All those sensors, buzzers, and chips inside your Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit talk to your tablet or computer dozens of times a second.
High-quality batteries will provide 6 uninterrupted hours of play. This may vary based on your use of the product.
When you leave the device inactive for several minutes, it will put itself into standby mode. Your batteries are able to provide 200-300 hours of standby charge.
We recommend removing the batteries if you aren't planning on using the kit for a few days to help them last longer.
Your Coding Wand box works well as a place to store your Coding Wand, so we recommend placing it somewhere special in your house!
Nothing is more important to us than your safety. When inserting new batteries always make sure that they are placed in the correct orientation. Failure to do so may cause the device to overheat and damage the product. Refer to the diagram shown above that is also in your instruction manual on page 11 if unsure at any time.
