Polaroid Cubetter

Polaroid CUBEtter is a tool that unlocks hidden settings of the Polaroid Cube (not the +). This tool can fully replace the default Polaroid Cube settings tool.

The hidden settings that it reveals are: bitrate (!), recording timeself timer and battery level.


The Polaroid Cube is set to record at a bitrate of 8mbps by default. It can however record at a maximum bitrate of 13mbps. A higher bitrate means better video quality.

Recording Time:

When you record continuously clips will be automatically be chopped into smaller clips. The default setting is 5 minute clips. You can however also set this to 15 minute clips.

Self Timer:

The Polaroid Cube also supports a non-documented feature: the Self Timer. Set the self timer delay with the tool and save. After that you can hold the button on the cube for 1 second and it will countdown and make a picture.

Battery Level:

A read-only value that gives you the exact percentage of battery left in your Polaroid Cube.
