Battery percentage

Hi, I’m a technophobe so 2 questions:

  1. how can I check the battery life on it?

  2. does it have to be on charge to work? If not how long is battery life?

It kept going offline when I took the charger out but not sure if it’s because I’ve just got it out the box :smiley:

There is an orb camera under your account. Sorry it is not a battery-powered camera, so it needs to be plugged in all the time.
You could purchase our battery cameras if you need.
