This is easy to use right out of the box, however you do need to charge the device first. It takes about 2 hours or so, mine was already 50% charged. There are four white LED’s to show the charge level and one blue LED,That will turn yellow when connected to the router for wireless internet. If you press the power button, long press, and all of the lights on the unit flash this means the remaining battery is not enough to power on.
