Protecting the Wireless Speakers from accidents or malfunction caused by water / dirt / foreign objects when charging

    WARNING! If you charge the speaker when the main unit or USB terminal is wet, or with foreign substances (dust, dirt, etc.) in or near the USB terminal, there is an increased chance of fire, electrical shock, or burns due to fire. Doing so can also cause malfunctions or staining around the speakers. To prevent such situations or accidents from happening, carefully check the wireless speakers, the charging port, the USB cable, and surrounding areas before charging:

    • Make sure that no water or moisture can be found around the speakers, charging port, or surrounding area: If water or moisture can be found around these areas, remove it with a soft dry cloth and allow to dry at room temperature. Once everything is completely dry you can start charging again.

      WARNING! Even if your wireless speakers are waterproof or moisture-proof, charging the wireless speakers while wet may cause fire or electrical shock. Before charging, make sure that there is no water or moisture around the speakers or peripheral items.

    • Make sure that no foreign substances can be found around the charging port, etc.: If the speakers become dirty, clean thoroughly before charging.
    • Make sure that USB cable is not damaged, deformed, wet, or dirty: Before charging, check that no water, moisture, or foreign substances can be found in or around the USB cable. Also, check that the USB cable is not damaged or deformed.

    Common examples when speakers can easily get wet

    In the following cases, you may unintentionally make the speakers wet. Take care when using the speakers in such situations. Even if your speakers have waterproof or moisture-proof specifications, do not forget to wipe off the water (or dirt, etc.) after each use. Also, if your speakers come with a cap for the USB terminal, make sure to close the cap after charging. The cap plays a very important role in maintenance of the waterproof, moisture-proof, and dust proof performance.

    • Using speakers near water (basin, bathroom, kitchen, sea, swimming pool etc.):
      If you use them in humid places, water or moisture can easily adhere to the speakers.
    • Using speakers in the rain, or hanging them on a backpack:
      Even if they seem away from water because they are under an umbrella or in a pocket, water or moisture may still adhere to the speakers.
    • Placing the speakers in a humid area may cause condensation:
      If you bring speakers from a cold place to a warm place, condensation can cause water to adhere inside the speakers USB terminal.
