How to keep battery from dying when using Anafi AI in Sphinx

I am using the Anafi AI as a WiFi Dongle, connected to the laptop over USB, to Sphinx. It works just fine. However, the battery in the drone will die everyday. I would think it would be charging from USB, but seems like its not? I even connected the Anafi AI to a powered hub to make sure its getting enough current, but no change.

Is this behavior correct, or is there a setting to allow it to charge when being used in this manner?

Hi @ohlarikd,

You can try running the simulator with a wifi dongle and not with the drone. Take a look at our documentation.


I did see that - all the warnings made me leery :slight_smile:

As long as you are confirming it won’t charge, that is ok, I will stop trying.
