Charging the battery
Your player is charged through the USB connection when it is connected to your computer. To fully charge the player, make sure your computer is on and the player is connected for at least 3 hours.
MP3 players are only tested through the computer via the USB cable, so that is the only way we support charging the player.
Risks of charging the player with a universal charger:
- If you try a universal charger, it would be at your own risk.
- If you get a universal charger that produces too much power, it could damage the player.
- Normally the computer can sense when the player is fully charged, if you use a universal charger and it sends over a contact charge even after the battery is full, it can also damage your player.
