Contents of the iOLab package

  • 1 iOLab device (batteries included)
  • 1 screwdriver
  • 1 yellow foam circle
  • 1 spring
  • 1 eye bolt
  • 1 pusher plate
  • 2 adhesive felt strips

Note: New devices come with a plastic battery saver protruding through the battery door on the back of the device. You should remove and discard this.

Attaching the felt strips

Peel the paper from the back of each felt strip and apply them horizontally to the top and bottom of the back of the iOLab as shown in the video above. This will help your iOLab slide smoothly across surfaces during experiments.

Removing the dongle

To remove the dongle from the back of your device, press in on the metallic end until the other end pops out.

If your dongle remains stuck, you can use a long, flat object to pry it out.


Checking the batteries

Use the included screwdriver to open the battery cover on the back of the iOLab device. Make sure your device has two AA batteries in place. You can replace the batteries if you are experiencing power failure and connection issues, which are indicated by the power light turning off, turning red, or not turning on.
