How long will Aido take to charge?

When Aido is charged the first time, it will take up to 12 hours to charge fully. Subsequently, we expect Aido to take about 4-5 hours to charge on a daily basis. We recommend using Aido’s optional smart dock to have Aido charged through the night.

What was the inspiration behind Aido?

Dolphins are highly social animals, living in groups. Dolphins teach, learn and cooperate amongst themselves. They are known to form strong bonds, not only with their own species, but also with others.

In addition to the behavioral aspects of dolphins, which we felt were a great fit with what Aido stood for, we took inspiration from the shape of the dolphins.
