The S1 cannot be charged while in use.
The USB port is used for firmware updates, not for charging battery.

You should install the balance weight cap when using a GoPro BacPac or a GoPro HERO 5 Black, HERO 6, HERO (2018), HERO 7 camera. When the balance weight cap is installed, the gimbal should be in BacPac mode. Press and hold the ‘M’ button for 3 second to enable/disable BacPac mode.
At this point, every gimbal out in the market using gyro-sensor and 3-axis motors are having the same occurrences. To balance out the gimbal, please restart the S1, or switch to other modes and go back to Lock Mode again.
‘Rainproof’ means you can use the gimbal in light rain or snow, it CANNOT go underwater. We recommend users to use S1 in rain or snow for less than 10 min and please DO NOT SUBMERGE IT INTO WATER.
The balance of the motor may falter when used in a climate that has a big change in temperature than the climate it was previously used in. In the case that this happens, please perform a user calibration in the new climate to solve the issue.
You need to occasionally calibrate the gimbal. Please refer to user’s manual and the video links below on how to calibrate the gimbal.
Calibration is not regularly needed. However, if the gimbal seems unbalanced while in use, proceed to calibrate the gimbal.
Controlling the camera left/right can only be used in Lock Mode.
