After Receiving Your Card Machine


Charging your Yoco Go card machine


We have provided a micro USB charging cable in your launch kit which you can use to charge your Yoco Go card machine. Plug the smaller end into the card machine and then  plug the other end into a power source like a USB plug or a laptop. 

  • The card machine takes 1 hour to fully charge from a wall socket.
  • If you're unable to turn on your card machine, this may mean the battery is completely flat. Charge your card machine directly from a plug socket for an hour.
  • When the card machine’s battery is very low, an exclamation mark inside a triangle icon will display.
  • When the card machine is charging a redlight will indicate this and a lightning bolt over a battery icon will display.
  • Do not charge your Yoco card machine during electrical storms.

How long can I use a Yoco Go card machine on a full charge

You can process approximately 500 transactions on your Yoco Go card machine. You can also process approximately 700 contactless transactions on your Yoco Go card machine.

IMPORTANT: To maximise the life-span of your card machine we recommend charging from a plug socket in the wall. Using a branded USB plug with a surge-protector. Do not charge your card reader overnight as it will kill your battery life over the long term.
