Magnet Safety Warnings

    The magnet mount on your Polaroid CUBE is a low-powered magnet. As with any magnet, it is best to follow these safety precautions:

  • Medical Devices

    • Some medical devices can be sensitive to magnetic fields. If the user has a pacemaker, defibrillator, implanted insulin pump, or other electronic medical device or has health issues that require the use of any such device, avoid using the Polaroid CUBE and/or any related accessories until consulting a physician.
  • Pregnant Women

    • Pregnant Women should consult a physician before using any magnetic device.
  • Damage to Electronics/ Magnetic Storage Media

    • Direct contact to magnetic fields may cause damage to magnetic storage media, hard drives, electronic devices and credit cards/ items with electronic stripes. To avoid damage, extend USB cord as far as possible from your computer, or use a longer microUSB cord.


During extended use, your Polaroid CUBE camera may feel warm to the touch. This is a normal operating occurrence and does not indicate any product defect or reason to slow down the fun.
