When your Bell or Bell 2 is a new unit or when it runs out of battery power, we recommend charging the device for at least 2-3 hours before using it. Charging from 5% to 100% should take about 5 hours.
The Bell alarm clocks can last for up to a few months of moderate use on a single charge. This can be considerably shortened by frequent use of the backlight or letting the alarm play long and on high volume.
Charging and Activating the Mudita Bell or Bell 2
Battery Level Status
To check the battery level, light-click the main button and hold it for about 2 seconds. In the Bell 2, a voiced message will tell you what the current battery percentage is. In the first-generation Bell, the battery level will be indicated by distinct light and sound combinations:
95-100% of battery level:
The device will light up and sound 3 times. This means the Bell is fully charged and doesn't need to be charged.
50-95% of battery level:
The device will light up and sound 2 times. This means there is still enough power and the Bell doesn't need to be charged.
5-50% of battery level:
The device will light up and sound 1 time. This means the Bell still works and has some power, but will require charging soon. It's a good idea to charge it at this stage to keep it working.
0-5% of battery level:
The device will flash the backlight 3 times and sound its low battery signal. This means the battery is empty or close to empty and the Bell should be charged immediately.
Low Battery Warning
When the battery level is at less than 5%, a low battery level warning will be activated. When the battery is critically low, any interaction with the alarm clock will trigger the lights to flash and a low battery-level warning to sound. Functionalities are limited to time indication and alarm functionality. The device should be plugged in and charged immediately. Otherwise, its battery will be completely discharged, and the quartz mechanism will stop functioning.
