Things You Should Know for Charging Your Bluetooth speaker
How do I charge my Bluetooth speaker?
First of all, please ensure that your wireless Bluetooth speaker is switched off before charging or connecting it to its power source via USB cable or AC adaptor. For best results, we recommend that you plug your audio device into an electrical socket and switch it on at least 5 minutes before use to allow it enough time to charge fully.
Once plugged in, a row of LED lights on the front of your speaker will light up and stay lit until charging is complete.
It takes about 4 hours to charge an empty battery fully. The battery status indicator on top of your product will indicate when your battery is low (for example, 2 out of 4 lights), medium (3 out of 4 lights), or full (all 4 lights). You can also check this during playback by pressing down on the volume control knob near the speaker’s top.
This will activate the battery status indicator, and a row of LED lights on top of your speaker will indicate batteries charge level (4 lights = complete, 3 lights = medium, 2 lights = low).
Some other Bluetooth speakers may not have the row of battery lights, but only a single LED light, with a different color to indicate the charging status.
If I don’t listen to my speaker for a while, how long before it needs to be recharged?
It’s difficult to say precisely how long your battery will last between charges. Each time you recharge the battery, it starts at full power, but over time the amount of charge stored in the rechargeable batteries will gradually decrease until they need replacing.
If your speaker isn’t being used regularly, we recommend that you unplug it from the mains after use and let it run out of power before plugging it back into an electrical socket. This will help to prolong the life of the rechargeable batteries.
What’s the best way to prolong my speaker’s battery life?
Leaving the rechargeable batteries in your product when you’re not using it for an extended period of time can adversely affect how long they last between charges. To help preserve the battery charge, it’s best to disconnect your speaker from AC power (mains) when it is not in use.
Suppose you find that your batteries have run out and you wish to use your speaker while charging. In that case, we recommend plugging it into a USB socket instead of a central electrical outlet. That will ensure both charges and play simultaneously without reducing the amount of electricity available to each source.
How long can I expect my rechargeable batteries to last?
This depends on how much you use your speaker system. Playback volume impacts battery life, leaving the unit plugged into AC power (mains) during periods of non-use. If you use your speaker in short bursts at high volume, the rechargeable batteries won’t last as long as if you play it at a low or medium volume level for more extended periods.
I estimate that the rechargeable batteries should last for 4 and 8 hours, depending on how they are used. However, this will vary considerably depending on individual product components (e.g., amplifier wattage).
Can I replace the rechargeable batteries?
No. The speakers are not designed to have their rechargeable batteries replaced by the user. However, don’t hesitate to get in touch with customer services with any inquiries about battery replacement.
Can I buy spare rechargeable batteries?
No. The speakers are not designed to have their rechargeable batteries replaced by the user, and we do not sell them separately from complete systems either online or through our stores. However, don’t hesitate to get in touch with customer services with any inquiries about battery replacement.
Can I buy extra mains adaptors?
No. The main power supply included with your product is a unique, specially matched unit designed to meet the requirements of the speaker system. Therefore, it will not be available from an electrical retail outlet. Should you need a replacement mains adaptor for your speaker system, please contact customer services with any inquiries regarding this issue.
Can I use my speaker without batteries?
Putting your speakers on standby or switching them off completely does not drain or reduce their power levels in any way. This means that there’s no harm in leaving them plugged into AC power (mains) even when they’re switched off.
As long as they stay connected to their mains power cable, they’ll take just a few seconds to ‘boot up’ and be ready for a quick play session whenever you want to use them.
How long does a speaker battery last?
The time a rechargeable battery lasts depends on how much you use your speaker system, what playback volume you use it at, and whether or not you leave the unit plugged into AC mains power (power) during periods of non-use.
For example, if you use your speaker in short bursts at high volume levels, it’s unlikely to last very long. In contrast, if you play it at low or medium volumes for more extended periods, its capacity should be more significant. We estimate that the rechargeable batteries should last between 4 and 8 hours depending on how they are used, but this will vary considerably depending on individual product components (e.g., amplifier wattage).
How do I get the most out of my speaker’s rechargeable batteries?
There are several ways to increase the life of your rechargeable battery, depending on how you use it. Leaving your speakers plugged into AC mains power at all times ensures that they’ll be ready to play whenever you want, but this will have an impact on its regular running costs and is likely to reduce the lifespan of its batteries over time.
Running your speaker system from batteries with no connection to AC mains power means that it’s only powered when in active use, increasing the life expectancy of its rechargeable batteries and reducing energy usage.
Adopting either approach is up to you, but our recommended method for getting the most out of your product’s rechargeable batteries involves using them regularly throughout their charge cycle. This keeps the batteries in peak condition for longer, ensuring there is always power in them when you want to play your speaker system.
How do I extend the battery life of my Bluetooth speaker?
The battery life of a Bluetooth-enabled speaker is dependant on several factors such as volume levels and distance from an active device. We recommend keeping the speaker within 30 feet of the Bluetooth source and reducing volume when in use. Each time your product’s Bluetooth connection is cut off, its batteries will begin to drain, so we also recommend turning it off when not in use if possible.
How long do Bluetooth speakers take to charge?
Speakers that are charged via AC mains power will take roughly 6-8 hours to charge fully. Speakers that are charged by USB will take roughly 3-4 hours to charge fully.
How do you fix a speaker that is not charging?
Please check that your speaker is turned off and plugged into a working power source. Also, please check that the connection between the speaker and power source is secure. If your product’s batteries have been drained completely, it may take several minutes before they begin to charge fully.
Speakers must be switched on to receive their primary power input from an AC mains adapter or USB port. Therefore, if you are attempting to use your speakers while charging but they do not appear to be powering on, please make sure that they are correctly connected with their corresponding cables and try again later when the unit has some charge left in it.
Please ensure that your product is receiving main power from a working AC adaptor or USB cable. In addition, please ensure that it is switched on and charging by checking the speaker’s LED indicator light if this is the case.
Speakers will automatically stop charging when they have reached 100% as a safety feature to protect from damaging their internal electronics. However, the speaker may take several seconds to power back on after plugging in, so please give them time before forcing a reboot.
Suppose your product has been charged for over 8 hours but does not appear to be powering up at all. In that case, you should check that your mains power supply or USB cable is working correctly with another device such as a smartphone or laptop before contacting our technical support team below.
Is it bad to use a speaker while charging?
Yes, we recommend unplugging your speaker from its primary power or USB cable once it has reached 100% charge. This will prolong the life of both the product’s rechargeable batteries and the charger itself. For best results, please ensure that your Bluetooth speakers are unplugged from their power source before each use, for example, when transporting them to a different location such as a friend’s house, etc.
Can you overcharge speakers?
Yes, overcharging your speakers will damage the rechargeable batteries permanently. For best results, please ensure that your Bluetooth speakers are unplugged from their power source before each use, for example, when transporting them to a different location such as a friend’s house, etc.
Is Fast charging terrible for battery life?
No, fast charging will not reduce the life of your speakers’ rechargeable battery. Charging for more extended periods will only increase the speed at which it charges without any detriment to its lifespan.
Can Bluetooth speaker battery be replaced?
No, the rechargeable batteries within our speakers cannot be replaced. For best results, we recommend that you replace your Bluetooth speaker with a new product when its battery has been drained or is no longer holding charge.
Can I leave my Bluetooth speaker plugged in all the time?
Sticking to the guidelines above will help you avoid damaging your rechargeable batteries and charger. Leaving your speaker plugged in is not as detrimental as overcharging it, but the continuous power input may reduce its lifespan slightly.
