4) Charging the battery
To start, make sure The OontZ Angle has a sufficient battery charge. To charge the Lithium Ion rechargeable battery in the OontZ Angle plug the micro connector end of the USB cable into the Micro “USB” Charging Port on the OontZ Angle and the other end into a USB charging source on either your Desktop, laptop or Smartphone USB wall Power Adapter 5V (not included). The Charging Indicator Light will glow blue, When the OontZ Angle battery is fully charged, the charging indicator light will turn to red. The OontZ Angle will take about 3 to 4 hours to fully charge.
You can use your OontZ Angle when it is charging.
Important Note: It is recommended that you remove the charging cable after the OontZ Angle is fully charged.
**The OontZ Angle, when fully charged, has a play time of up to 10 hours, depending on volume.. The play time varies for a number of reasons including the volume (the louder the volume, the shorter the play time), device, connection, and music type.
Please note: If your OontZ Angle fails to power on, it is possible that your speaker battery has been fully drained and needs to be recharged using a USB wall adapter (same adapter that comes with iPhone, smartphone, tablet, etc.). These adapters will have the sufficient charging power to bring it out of a drained state, some laptops will not have the USB charging power to do this. Laptops are fine for normal charging but may be inadequate for a drained battery. Please try charging overnight with a USB wall adapter.
