The product operating life is 2-3 years (*based on average user charging 3 times per week)
The capacity of any type of battery will diminish after a certain amount of recharging. With lithium-ion batteries, the capacity diminishes slightly with each complete charge cycle.
Lithium-ion batteries may be charged at any time and there is no requirement to fully discharge the battery before recharging it again. A single charge cycle is achieved each time you fully discharge 100% of the battery capacity and recharge the battery again.
A discharge of 50% of the battery and recharge the battery represents one half charge cycle. The batteries in IQbuds are designed to retain 80% of their capacity after 400 full charge cycles giving the product a long usage lifespan.
Lithium-ion batteries are affected by temperature.
To preserve rechargeable batteries, use the following guidelines:
- Recommended storage conditions: Temperature 20 to 30C humidity not greater than 93%. Avoid placing in direct sunlight or extreme cold.
- Operating temperature range: 0 to 45C when charging and 0 to 60C while in use.
- Do not store IQbuds™ for extended periods without recharging them. If not regularly used charge around every 4 months.
- If you handle or store rechargeable batteries incorrectly, their lifetime may be reduced.
