After charging is complete, disconnect the micro-USB cable, then close the micro-USB port cover securely to prevent water or dusts being mixed into the headset.
- If charging starts while the headset is turned on, the headset will turn off automatically.
- If the headset is not used for a long time, the battery may be quickly depleted, however, after a few recharges, the battery life will improve.
- If you store the headset for a long time, charge the battery to its full capacity once every 6 months to avoid over discharge.
- If the headset is not used for a long time, it may take longer to charge the battery.
- If the computer enters into hibernation mode while connected to the headset, charging will not be completed properly. Check the setting of the computer before charging. The indicator (red) will go off automatically if the computer enters into hibernation mode. Charge the headset again in this case.

- Ambient temperature exceeds the charging temperature range of 5 °C – 35 °C(41 °F - 95 °F).
- There is a problem with the battery.
- If the headset is not used for a long time, the indicator (red) may not light up when you connect the micro-USB cable to charge the headset. In this case, do not disconnect the micro-USB cable from the headset: wait a few minutes until the indicator (red) lights up.
