Some Regulatory Info

Warning: changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, the user is encouraged to try one or more of the following:

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
  • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
  • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. This device contains licence-exempt transmitter(s)/receiver(s) that comply with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada’s licence-exempt RSS(s).

Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

  1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
  2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

This equipment complies with FCC and ISED radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. End user must follow the specific operating instructions for satisfying RF exposure compliance. This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

The portable device is designed to meet the requirements for exposure to radio waves established by the Federal Communications Commission (USA) and ISED. These requirements set a SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg averaged over one gram of tissue. The highest SAR value reported under this standard during product certification for use when properly worn on the body.

Cet équipement est conforme aux limites d’exposition aux rayonnements ISED établies pour un environnement non contrôlé. L’utilisateur final doit suivre les instructions spécifiques pour satisfaire les normes. Cet émetteur ne doit pas être co-implanté ou fonctionner en conjonction avec toute autre antenne ou transmetteur.

Le dispositif portatif est conçu pour répondre aux exigences d’exposition aux ondes radio établie par le développement énergétique DURABLE. Ces exigences un SAR limite de 1,6 W/kg en moyenne pour un gramme de tissu. La valeur SAR la plus élevée signalée en vertu de cette norme lors de la certification de produit à utiliser lorsqu’il est correctement porté sur le corps.

L’émetteur/récepteur exempt de licence contenu dans le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d’Innovation, Sciences et Développement économique Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence. L’exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes:

  1. L’appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage;
  2. L’appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible d’en compromettre le fonctionnement.

Finally, after all that, Panic hereby declares that the radio equipment PDU-01 is in compliance with Directive 2014/53/EU. The full text of the EU declaration of conformity is (hopefully) available at the following internet address:


CAUTION! There are some very important battery warnings here.

  • There’s a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Only ever replace the battery with the exact same type.
  • Disposing of a battery into fire, or hot oven (why…), or mechanically crushing or cutting the battery, can result in an explosion.
  • Leaving the battery in extremely high temperature environment, or subjected to low pressure air, can result in an explosion or leakage of flammable liquid or gas.

Please, in general, be kind and careful with Playdate’s battery.

ESD Event

In case of electrostatic discharge, Playdate will reset to the main menu.


An AC adapter for charging is not included. We recommend using an AC adapter with a rating no higher than 5V / 2A.


When it’s time to move on, don’t throw Playdate in the trash. Dispose of it separately by taking it to your local electronics recycling point. With little effort, you can recycle valuable raw materials properly and safely.
