Preserving battery capacity
To preserve your speaker's battery life, we recommend following these simple guidelines:
- If you are able to plug in the speaker during use, it is best to do so.
- When the speaker is running on battery power, make sure to plug it in when the battery indicator shows a low charge (indicated by a red dot in the battery indicator).
- If you need to leave your Zipp unused for an extended period, make sure to plug it in before leaving it.
- Use the original Libratone AC-DC power adapter only.
Additionally, the Zipp and Zipp Mini will also turn off after 30 minutes of inactivity to preserve battery capacity.
At Libratone, we solely use batteries of high quality, which ensures longevity and efficient power consumption. However, no battery remains unaffected by years of use, so if a replacement is ever necessary, a battery swap is possible at our service centre (contact Support for more information).
12V/24V power connection
It is not possible to connect the speaker directly to 12V/24V. Instead, use a power inverter to go from 12V/24V DC to 110V/240V AC, then use your original Libratone power adapter.
