  • If the emWave2 device is left unattended for 6 - 8 months or longer, the battery will deeply discharge on its own.
  • When plugged in, the emWave2 device power management will attempt to recover and recondition the battery.

 The procedure under these conditions are as follows :

  • Unplug the device for 5 minutes and plug it back in for 20 minutes. Repeat this procedure 3 times.

  • After 2 hours of continuous charging, unplug the device from the power source.
  • If it does not turn on, after you unplug it from the power source, your emWave2 battery has discharged to a point where it is now unrecoverable. You may continue to use it while connected to a power source or contact your vendor for warranty/replacement information.
