Turn the reader on and off
You can turn on the BBPOS Chipper 2X BT reader by pressing and releasing the power button. The status light turns on to indicate power. The reader waits for a connection for five minutes before turning off.
When the reader connects to a device running your app, its status light shines steady blue. If inactive for more than 30 seconds, it enters standby mode to conserve power, and the status light begins flashing at 5-second intervals. The reader stays connected to your iOS or Android device while in standby and automatically exits standby mode when you resume activity.
The reader automatically turns off after 10 hours of inactivity. You can turn the reader off manually by pressing and holding the power button until the status light goes out. You don’t need to turn off the reader to conserve power.
When you turn on the BBPOS Chipper 2X BT, the LED located beside the power button shows the reader’s current status.
