Battery life

Doonser Aug 05, 2013 11:00PM CDT

Does the Soundkick go into sleep mode if it is not being used for a certain amount of time? That is, does it power down by itself after a few minutes of idleness?

Also, if I press the power button so that it is off, is the Soundkick still using up battery if the extension chamber is extended? That is, do I need to close the extension chamber whenever I am not listening to music?

Thank you.

Doonser, thank you for being a Soundfreaq customer, and you are correct, the Sound Kick does have a power savings mode where the unit powers off after half an hour of no music playing. There is no way to disable this feature, and we do ask our users to physically power back on the Soundfreaq after the period of inactivity.

As for the extension chamber, there is no need to push it back in every time you are done using the speaker. It is merely a design function for portability, and does not use up additional power.

Hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Yes, I had one other question (sorry I forgot to ask before): Is it better for life of the battery over time to let it run down to fully discharge it, and then recharge, or recharge whenever I can?

Likewise, is it better to leave the Soundkick plugged in whenever I'm not using it, or just when recharging? Thanks.

Doonser, I certainly understand your concern with optimizing battery life, and this is a question we get quite often. There is no need to discharge the battery, and all portable models have an intelligent power controller and it is safe to keep it plugged in all the time. That's what I do with the one I have at home, and when I want to take it with me, I just grab it and go. Hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
