Charging the battery

The Verity Sense has an internal, rechargeable battery. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles. You can charge and discharge the battery over 500 times before a notable decrease in its capacity. The number of charge cycles also varies according to use and operating conditions.

Before charging, please make sure there’s no moisture, dust or dirt on the charging contacts of your Verity Sense and USB charging adapter. Gently wipe off any dirt or moisture. Do not charge the sensor when it’s wet.

Do not charge the battery in temperatures under 0 °C/ +32 °F or over +40 °C/ +104 °F or when the USB port is wet.
Attach the USB charging adapter to the sensor before connecting the adapter to the power supply.
Don't leave the USB charging adapter connected to the power supply without the sensor.

Use the USB charging adapter included in the product set to charge it via the USB port on your computer. You can also charge the battery via a wall outlet. When charging via a wall outlet, use a USB power adapter (not included in the product set).

You can charge the battery via a wall outlet. When charging via a wall outlet, use a USB power adapter (not included in the product set). If you use a USB power adapter, make sure that the adapter is marked with "output 5Vdc" and that it provides a minimum of 500mA. Only use an adequately safety approved USB power adapter (marked with "LPS", "Limited Power Supply", "UL listed" or “CE”).

    If the battery is completely empty, it may take several minutes for the charging to start.

Don't leave the battery fully discharged for a long period of time or keep it fully charged all the time, because it may affect the battery lifetime.
