How Long it Plays on a Full Charge

On a complete charge, the UE Megaboom 3 Speaker can play for up to twenty (20) hours.  But when you play it loudly, especially with extra bass, you will see somewhat shorter lasting power.  We’ve seen this Bluetooth speaker run dead in around fourteen (14) hours when played at louder volumes. So to get the longest Recharge Time from it, power saving helps a lot.  Just play it only as loudly as you must to hear it well throughout your listening space. Then you will get longer play times.

The Recharge Time Gets Smaller as the Speaker Ages

If your speaker is several years old, then the play time per charge may be less.  This is normal for devices with ion lithium batteries like this one.

But by working the battery every now and then, you can slow this charge fall off.

To exercise the battery, run it dead and charge it again every three to six months when not in use.

Also, we suggest that you not leave the speaker plugged into a charger once it has reached full charge.  Right after the charging lamps go out, disconnect the speaker as soon as you can. Doing so avoids overcharging it and thus, degrading the battery prematurely.
