Wi-Fi HD Action Camera
Using Your Polaroid Cube+ Camera
Hold the multifunction button until the LED turns green and you hear 3 beeps. All set!
Hold multifunction button until the LED turns off and you hear 1 long beep followed by 1 short beep.
Charging the Battery
The battery in your Cube+ comes partially charged. To charge, connect the included USB cable to the camera and connect the other end of the cable to a power source such as a computer or wall outlet. No damage will occur to the camera or battery if used prior to a full charge.
A microSD card must be present for your Polaroid Cube+ to work. To insert a microSD card, lift the rear cover and with the metal contacts facing up, insert the card and gently push in until you hear a click. To remove a card, gently tap the card and the SD card will pop out.
If no microSD card is present, your camera will beep continuously and the LED will blink orange until a new microSD card is inserted.
Your camera will also blink orange if there is a problem reading the card. You may need to format your card or try a different card.
● When your microSD memory is almost full (1GB remaining), the LED will blink alternating orange and red. Once the SD card is completely full you’ll hear a single short beep and you will no longer be able to take photos or videos. The LED will blink orange and red until the microSD card is removed or data is transferred from the camera.
● Your Polaroid Cube+ camera can accommodate microSD cards with storage capacities up to 128GB. We suggest using microSD cards Class 10 and above. Cards lower than Class 6 may cause slower recording/reading speed as well as other unexpected issues.
Press the multifunction button once. You'll hear a short beep and the LED will blink red once.
Double press the multifunction button. You’ll hear two short beeps and the LED will blink red while you are recording. To stop recording, press the multifunction button one time. You’ll hear a single short beep and the LED will return to a solid green.

During extended use, your Polaroid Cube+ camera may feel warm to the touch. This is a normal operating occurrence and does not indicate any product defect or reason to slow down the fun.
Your Cube+ app will warn you with an error message if it reaches the maximum safe usage temperature of 70ºC/158ºF. If you see this warning, stop using your camera and allow it to cool. If temperatures exceeds 70ºC/158ºF, your camera will first stop recording videos and photos and eventually shut down. Your camera can be turned on again after it has cooled down to a safe temperature.
Magnet Safety Warnings
The magnet mount on your Polaroid Cube+ is a low-powered magnet. As with any magnet, it is best to follow these safety precautions.
Some medical devices can be sensitive to magnetic fields. If the user has a pacemaker, defibrillator, implanted insulin pump, or other electronic medical device or has health issues that require the use of any such device, avoid using the Polaroid Cube+ and/or any related accessories until consulting a physician.
Pregnant women should consult a physician before using any magnetic device.
Damage to Electronics/Magnetic Storage Media:
Direct contact to magnetic fields may cause damage to magnetic storage media, hard drives, electronic devices and credit cards/items with magnetic stripes. To avoid damage, extend micro USB cord as far as possible from your computer, or use a longer micro USB cord.
