The Swivl C Series and CX bases and markers have a battery life of 4-6 hours under normal use cases, but it could depend on various factors.
You can check your Swivl base and marker charging status by taking a look at the charging indicators at the back:
- solid green light: fully charged
- blinking green: more than 40%
- blinking red: less than 40%
