Li-Ion Battery Best Practices - Getting the most out of your battery-powered MEE audio products

MEE audio products utilize lithium-ion batteries, the most common type of batteries in household electronics. Following these simple battery guidelines will help you get the best performance and longevity out of your battery-powered MEE audio products.

Battery Care and Maintenance

  • Avoid temperature extremes, both high and low, when using or storing lithium-ion batteries. Do not use your product in temperatures below -10°C/14°F or above 45°C/113°F including direct sunlight. Always charge at a moderate temperature.
  • Lithium-ion batteries do not need to be fully charged; a partial charge is better. Don’t intentionally drain a battery fully before recharging it.
  • Make sure to charge and discharge your battery-containing product at least once a month. The lifetime of the battery will be significantly reduced if it is not charged for a long time.
  • If the battery-containing product will not be used for a prolonged period of time, store in a cool place with a partial (30-70%) charge.
  • Over-discharged batteries can sometimes be “boosted” to life again with a more powerful charger.

Warnings & Cautions

Always follow the safety precautions outlines in your specific product’s user manual. The below precautions should only be considered general guidelines.

  • If submersed in water, do not turn the device on until completely dried.
  • Danger of explosion or fire if batteries are damaged. Keep away from salt water, naked flames, flammable gasses, or heat sources such as radiators or stoves.
  • Never disassemble a battery-containing product or do anything that may crush or puncture the battery. Do not use a product with a damaged battery.
  • Do not expose a battery to temperatures above 60 °C (140 °F).
  • Avoid exposing the battery to excessive shock or vibration.
  • Discontinue using charger and/or battery if the battery gets excessively warm.

Disposal & Recycling

Because this product contains electronic components and a battery, it must be disposed of separately from household waste.

  • Lithium-Ion batteries are subject to disposal and recycling regulations that vary by country and region. Many countries prohibit the disposal of waste electronic equipment in standard waste receptacles. Always check and follow your applicable regulations before disposing of any battery.
  • Do not dispose of any electronics products in fire or water.
  • For USA and Canada, visit the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation at www.rbrc.org, or check with your local battery recycling organization.
  • When disposing of batteries and battery-containing products, it is recommend to discharge the battery first.
