I can't seem to find the battery indicator anywhere. there's no led on the device that I can tell and there's no way to see it either in the bluetooth menu (like you would with apple mice and keyboards) or in the software.

ok, sure, then I have 2 follow up questions on that:

1) is there a way to query the battery state predicted in the hardware? in a way so that a future software/firmware update may expose this information?
2) how much time does it take to fully charge the battery?

There is currently no battery life indicator. They should last approx. 2-3 days with 8 hrs/day of usage.

Hi Kresimir Spes , please see responses below:
1. Unfortunately, there is not currently a way to query the battery state. The Main PCB has the ability to see the basic battery level with an red/green LED (green-charged, yellow-medium, red-low), but it was always on and was too bright, so we ended up removing the LED. The board can still do it, we just haven't gotten a better solution yet.
2. It takes approx. 5-6 hours to fully charge.

hmm, couldn't you simply make a button that shines that LED for a few seconds when pressed? and have the PCB shine it periodically when battery state is low? in any case, it's not a particular problem but it would be useful info to have.

also, another important question, does the battery charge if connected via usb, but the on/off switch is turned off?

Kresimir Spes, it may be possible to have the LED switched. The battery level is something we want to include, as long as it's not annoying to users (like if the LED was on all the time) and the cost to make any modifications to the Main PCB isn't too expensive. As for the battery charging when the power switch is off, the answer is yes. The batteries will still charge, regardless if the power switch is off.
