The same button is used for turning on and off. Short press to turn on and long press to turn off.
How do I learn how to program the imagiCharm?
The imagiCharm can be programmed from the imagi mobile app or from the imagi Edu web platform for schools.
The imagi mobile app includes interactive tutorials that start from zero as well as a community to share the learning journey with! The tutorials teach introductory computer science concepts and Python programming in a fun, visual and tangible way. The in-app community is there to answer questions and help you out along your journey!
The imagi Edu platform features lessons (worksheets and slides) to learn from.
How do I connect to my imagiCharm from the imagi app?
To connect to your imagiCharm, first you need to make sure that Bluetooth is turned on. Location services also need to be turned on for the Bluetooth to work.
Then, in the imagi app, go to the Connect section and tap on the name of your imagiCharm in the table. The name of the imagiCharm is its color and the number that it displays after you turn it on. Turn it on with a quick click of the button.
When you connected successfully you should see a check-mark next to the name of the imagiCharm and the LED matrix on the imagiCharm will display a Bluetooth sign.
If you are encountering any problems make sure that:
- the imagiCharm is charged
- the imagiCharm is not connected to another device (phone or tablet)
How can I upload my project to my imagiCharm?
After successfully debugging your code, tap the yellow "Upload" button and then the purple heart.
If you were not connected to an imagiCharm, you will be asked to connect to one in this step. Once your project is uploaded, you should see a "Successfully uploaded" message on the screen and your project should appear on the imagiCharm's LED matrix.
For animations with many frames, the upload can take up to 30 seconds.
If you are encountering issues, try restarting your imagiCharm. You can also try restarting the app but make sure to save your project beforehand so you don't lose your work!
Something is wrong with my imagiCharm. What should I do?
To start off, make sure your imagiCharm is charged. Insert the micro USB cable into the imagiCharm’s charging port.
While the device is charging, the indicator LED will glow orange. Next, restart your imagiCharm by long pressing the on/off button.
If you are still experiencing problems after these steps, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
What comes in the box?
The box contains the imagiCharm, string, bead, micro USB charging cable and instructions (inside the lid).
How can I change the cover of my imagiCharm?
Currently, the imagiCharm is available only in standard white/pale turquoise color. New and exciting covers are in development!
How do I clean my imagiCharm?
Clean the surface of the imagiCharm with a soft, damp cloth. Do NOT use any solvents, chemicals or cleaning solutions containing alcohol, ammonia or abrasives.
How can I charge the imagiCharm?
Insert the micro USB cable into the imagiCharm’s charging port. If needed, loosen the strap to get better access to the USB port. While the device is charging, the indicator LED will glow orange. When the device is fully charged (approximately in about 2 hours), the indicator LED will glow green.
My imagiCharm is not charging. What should I do?
Please check whether the USB cable is firmly inserted into the imagiCharm’s USB port. If you have alternative USB cables available, you can try using them instead. You should also try different charging ports, for example a computer’s USB port or a USB wall charger. Make sure the charger is rated 5V and at least 500mA.
You can check if your charger is functional by using it to charge another device, if you have one available.
If nothing works, your product may be faulty. Please contact us at email@example.com or further support.

The imagiCharm's battery lasts for 6 hours with average use.
I have a question that’s not in this FAQ, how can I get in touch with someone?
