Ensuring your WHOOP 4.0 is charged correctly can be as pivotal to its performance as your workout is to your fitness—without power, tracking stops. Let’s dive into the most efficient methods to keep your device fully juiced and ready for action, ensuring you never miss a beat—or in this case, a biometric reading.

Using the WHOOP USB-C Charging Cable

Plug your WHOOP 4.0 into a high-quality USB-C charging cable to keep it powered up. This type of cable connects smoothly and securely, providing the best charge for your device. Always choose a reliable power source, like a computer or certified wall adapter, to avoid damage.

Charging your WHOOP properly ensures it’s ready to track your fitness round the clock.

Make sure you’re using the right kind of cable—USB-C is the way to go for WHOOP 4.0 devices. It’s not just any cord; it’s made specifically to fuel up your fitness tracker effectively and safely.

A good connection means no worrying about slow charges or battery issues down the line. Stay in control of your charge and get back to smashing those workouts!

Charging the Battery Pack

Once your WHOOP USB-C charging cable is ready, focus on the battery pack next. Find the port on the battery pack and connect it to the USB-C end of your cable. Use a power source like a laptop or wall adapter to start charging.

The little light on the battery pack will blink, showing that it’s getting power.

Charge until that light turns solid, which means it’s full. This usually takes about 90 minutes. Don’t leave it plugged in longer than needed – overcharging can hurt the battery life.

Sliding the Battery Pack onto the WHOOP 4.0

Hold your WHOOP 4.0 with the top loop facing you. Take the charged battery pack and align it with this loop. Slide the pack over the loop gently until it clicks into place; you will know it’s correctly attached when you see an orange light turn on, signaling that your device is charging up.

Remember not to force the pack onto the end with “WHOOP” written on it—that’s not where it goes!

Make sure to charge your battery separate from your device at first. This avoids overheating as both can get warm while powering up. After charging, snap the battery pack onto your WHOOP strap and go about your day—it’ll juice up without getting in your way!

FAQs: WHOOP 4.0 Battery Pack and Charging

Can you charge the WHOOP 4.0 without the battery pack? Yes, but it’s not common practice. You’ll need a USB-C cable and access to a power source. Plug in your WHOOP directly just like any other device.

It’s handy in case you misplace your battery pack or while traveling light.

How long does the battery take to charge? Not too long – about 90 minutes should do it for a full charge from zero to full capacity. This quick power-up keeps downtime low, so you’re ready to track fitness again fast.

A charged battery pack means never having to remove your WHOOP strap for charging; slide on the packed-on power and go about your day! Keep tabs on that little LED indicator; once all five lights stay lit, you’re good to unplug and move on with maximum juice.

What if my WHOOP 4.0 won’t charge? First step—check connections: Is everything plugged in right? Sometimes it’s as simple as reseating cables or cleaning contacts on both device and charger.

If issues persist, consider reaching out for support—you might need professional help with troubleshooting or possibly replacing faulty components.

Maintaining the Battery Life of Your WHOOP 4.0

Charge your WHOOP 4.0 device before it completely runs out of power. Aim to recharge once the battery hits around 10%.

– Keep the battery from getting too hot or too cold, as extreme temperatures can harm it.

– Disconnect the charger once your WHOOP reaches a full charge to avoid overcharging.

– Store your WHOOP in a cool, dry place when you’re not using it for long periods.

– Update your device regularly with new firmware that can improve battery performance.

Avoid leaving the WHOOP on the charger overnight. Excessive charging time doesn’t help and could actually shorten its life span.

Use only the USB-C cable provided by WHOOP for charging. Other cables might damage the battery or affect charging efficiency.

Monitor your battery’s health within the app to check for any unusual drainage issues.

Reduce screen brightness and limit notifications if you notice faster than normal battery loss.

Engage in regular cleaning of both your band and contact points on your device; dirt can impede proper charging function.


Keep your WHOOP 4.0 ready for action with proper charging habits. Connect the battery pack whenever you’re down to 10%. Remember, 90 minutes is all it takes for a full charge – simple and fast! Take care of your device by avoiding extreme temperatures during charge times.

Happy training, and enjoy the full power of your WHOOP without a hitch!
