(See below) NOTE: The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball is designed to be used specifically with the 94Fifty Qi Compatible Wireless Charging Pad.

Step 3 13 14 Tips For Ball Care & Troubleshooting 3 15 EXTENDING THE LIFE OF YOUR BASKETBALL The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball contains a rugged, durable outer layer designed for indoor and outdoor use. Obviously, any ball used outdoors will show wear more quickly than with indoor use. The bottom line is that the more you play outdoors, and the rougher the surface of the play area, the faster the outer skin will lose its grip. Here are a few tips for extending the life of your investment: • Use it indoors when you can, particularly in inclement weather. • Don’t leave it outside when you are finished playing. Remember – it is just like your mobile phone or iPod – neither of which you would leave outside. • Charge the battery regularly. Like any battery, the less you use it, the less effective it becomes over time. • Do not place or leave the ball in water. While the ball is water resistant, it is not waterproof. If you leave it in the water (pool, rain, puddles, sink, bathtub, ocean, etc.) you will ruin the skin and the electronics. The warranty will be voided. • Avoid kicking or throwing the ball against a wall. It is very rugged, but it is not a baseball. No matter how frustrated you get, don’t do it. We consider this to be abnormal use of the ball. This is misuse and will void the warranty. Instead, kick a soccer ball or football to blow off some steam. • Do not to freeze the ball. While it won’t fit in your freezer, it can fit in your garage. In some places, garages can freeze. • Do not leave your ball unattended in public places. We do not warrant against theft. It might happen. So when using your ball, watch it closely and keep it close to you. If it gets stolen, there is no mechanism to track its location. 16 TROUBLESHOOTING BALL WON’T CONNECT TO APP AFTER BOUNCING. • Try charging the battery in the Ball. The ball may have low or no battery charge and is no longer able to communicate with the app. To charge the ball, place it on the Wireless Charging Pad (refer to page 13) and confirm that the blue light turns on. If the blue light on the Wireless Charging Pad turns on, then the ball is receiving a charge. Let the ball charge for at least 1 hour before reconnecting. • Confirm that you are not in travel mode. If you had the ball set to travel mode to conserve power, you will need to place the ball on the Wireless Charging Pad for a few seconds to re-activate the ball. (refer to page 6 and 7) • After activating the ball (indicated by the blue light on the Wireless Charging Pad), bounce the ball until the ball connects. • Confirm that the Bluetooth radio on your mobile device is on. Refer to your mobile device manual or instructions for turning on your Bluetooth radio. • Are you using an approved and compatible device? (refer to page 8) • If the ball still does not connect after steps 1-4, then visit www.94Fifty.com/support. PERFORMANCE DATA APPEARS TO HAVE DISAPPEARED. • The app records and stores data for up to 4 players for a maximum of three months. Data older than three months is automatically removed from the app. To store data for longer than three months, you can subscribe to the 94Fifty online community for a monthly fee. Log into community.94Fifty.com with the username and password on your app to learn more. 17 WIRELESS CHARGING PAD LIGHT DOES NOT TURN BLUE WHEN BALL IS PLACED ON PAD. • Confirm that the Wireless Charging Pad is properly connected to the AC power cord and plugged into a power outlet. • To test that the Wireless Charging Pad is working properly, first disconnect the AC power cord from the power outlet and reconnect. After reconnecting, the blue light on the Wireless Charging Pad should blink once. If this does not occur, then confirm all steps again before visiting www.94Fifty.com/support. • Confirm that the logo on the ball is matched to the logo on the Wireless Charging Pad (refer to page 15). A blue light should appear when the ball is placed properly on to the Wireless Charging Pad. • If the blue light still does not appear after Step 3, contact customer service at www.94Fifty.com/support. THE APP UNEXPECTEDLY CLOSED DURING USE AND RETURNED TO THE MOBILE DEVICE HOME SCREEN. • Restart the app and try again. • If this condition persists then contact www.94Fifty.com/support.
