Question about LG HBM 730 Bluetooth Headset Wireless Headset

Battery How long should a fully charged battery last? I"'ve had the headset for only a week and I basically have to charge it up when i get home each night because the battery literally goes dead by the end of the day. The headset is mostly in standby mode all day because I rarely talk on it during the day. Did my new headset have a weak battery when I purchased it?

Re: battery

A fully charged battery should last up to 4 hours if it's being used A LOT! But I lost mine and it was in standby mode for pretty close to 3 days and when I found it I was still able to use for quite awhile before charging it again.. So yes, it sounds like it had a weak battery..

*Time required to charge the empty battery to its full capacity
  • If the headset is not used for a long time, the indicator (red) may not light up when you connect the micro-USB cable to charge the headset. In this case, do not disconnect the micro-USB cable from the headset and wait until the indicator (red) lights up.
  • When you close the cover of the micro-USB port after charging the battery, push the catch at the edge (the round part) of the cover into the port compartment.

My headset is charged, but it won't power on.

You can try letting the battery die completely (this make take a week or so) then plug it back into the charge and let it recharge fully. I would delete/disconnect headset from your phone in the mean time. Once headset is fully charged again put it and phone in pairing mode and see if it will work properly for you this time.

I've had my plantonics headset for two weeks now and has worked great. Today, however, when I went to turn the unit on after it was recharging all night, holding the power button did nothing. I plugged...

This is probably a problem with the internal battery.
Some devices do not need to be charged for a very long time as this leads to eventual destruction of their battery.
The only way i can specify for you is for you to do the following.
Put it on charge and try turning it on, see if it comes on. If it does, the battery may be spoiled so cannot retain charge to power the device as it may have been over charged.
Also, if this doesn't work for you, the only thing you can do is to send it to an accessories store for check up or for repairs.
Hope this helped you? Please comment for more information.

Connected then Disconnected!!!

that could mean your headset is not charging. make sure the light is doing what it is supposed to when charging. you probably have a defective charger. happened to me. you could try pairing it with another phone to see how long it lasts. I found the Moto HS850 to be the only good, reliable one.

My headset does not hold its charge

Usually Lithium-Ion batteries have a Memory effect, ie. the battery should be 100% consumed then only recharged. If the battery is only 40% used and recharged then the battery will give you only 40% of it's total charge. The battery starts showing you empty after it is 40% consumed even it was 100% charged. Now there is solution for this-Drain battery upto full, store it in a cool place like Frigde then charge it full then again use it upto last. Repeat this procedure for 2-3 times.Your battery should come to normal state. Also check the charging current of the charger.The charger might also be faulty.
