How do you know when your Bluetooth headset is fully charged?

This is a question that confuses many new Bluetooth headset users. The most common response is when the light on the headset changes from red to blue. Which on most devices is not correct.

The first thing you should know about the Bluetooth headsets is that only some of them will show a red blinking light when they are charging. Some of them show a blue blinking light, and some don’t even have such a light. This means that the light indicator is not the only way to know when your Bluetooth headset is fully charged. You can also check it by looking at its battery meter on your phone.

This guide on will show you how to check the battery meter on most common devices, charge a Bluetooth headset, and more. Stay tuned!

How do you know when your Bluetooth headset is fully charged?

Your Bluetooth is fully charged when it shows the battery meter of your phone to be 100%. Almost all modern phones and devices have built-in Bluetooth. And some of those devices have a battery meter which you can use to check the status of your headset’s battery. This section will show you how to find the battery meter on the most popular devices and what a 100% on it means.

How do you know when your Bluetooth headset is fully charged

In iPhones: The battery meter is located in the Bluetooth settings. You need to go into Settings(which is in your phone’s main menu) to get there. Under Settings, you can tap on General. When it opens, scroll down until you find Bluetooth and tap on it.

Now that you are on the Bluetooth settings tap on the ‘i’ icon next to your device name. When the information comes up, you should see the battery meter under the name of your headset.

If you want to know for sure if your Bluetooth is fully charged, all you need to do is check the battery meter on your phone. If it shows 100%, then your device is charged.

In Android phones: Under Android, the process is almost identical. You need to go into Settings and tap on About phone (somewhere in the middle).

The About Phone settings will show you some information about your device. Scroll down until you find status, tap on it, and scroll down until you find Bluetooth status in the new window that opens up. Tap on it. Now that you are tap on Pair devices at the Bluetooth status window (it’s under status).

Now that you are at the pair devices window, all you need to do is tap on your headset’s name and then again on Bluetooth. When the next window opens up, tap on info. From now on, you can check your Bluetooth status by simply looking at your phone’s battery meter.

In Bluetooth headphones: In Bluetooth headphones, the status should show up when you turn it on. If the battery meter shows 100%, then your Bluetooth is fully charged.

How to charge Bluetooth headset

Now that you know how to check the status of your Bluetooth headset, it’s time to know how to charge it.

When you purchase your Bluetooth headset, it comes either partially charged or completely discharged (dead). In the first case, you have to connect it to your phone’s Bluetooth and turn it on. The battery meter of the Bluetooth on your phone should come up and show you the percentage of the charge.

When your Bluetooth is completely discharged (dead), connect it to an outlet or USB port with the supplied charging cable. It might take several hours before the battery meter shows anything on your phone. When it does, you will know that your Bluetooth is fully charged and ready to use.

You can also charge your Bluetooth headset by connecting it to your computer or laptop. Most newer computers and laptops have a USB port on the side. All you need is to connect your Bluetooth to it with the charging cable, enable Bluetooth on your computer and search for the device. If you don’t find any devices in this section, try restarting your computer and trying again. If it still doesn’t work, check the information on your Bluetooth.

Some devices are enabled for charging only when you are using them on a computer. If this is the case, you will need to select “charge” when your computer asks you what do you want to do. After connecting it to the computer, it will take few minutes to start charging the headset.

How long does the Bluetooth headset charge?

The Bluetooth headset will take about 2-3 hours to charge fully. That is the same time that your phone takes to charge fully. Some headsets can be fully charged in 30 minutes, but most of them need at least 2 hours. If your headset is completely discharged, it might take longer than 3 hours to recharge. But this is perfectly normal, and once the headset is fully recharged, it should last for up to 8 hours.

You can always check how much battery time you have left by looking at the battery meter on your phone or headphones. Even if the headset is fully charged, it’s always good to check that you have 100% battery left. This way, you can always be sure that your headset is ready to go.

How to increase Bluetooth headset battery life?

Even though the battery life of Bluetooth headsets has gone up dramatically over time, you might still want to take extra precautions.

1 – One of the best ways to increase the battery life is by turning off your Bluetooth headset when you are not using it. But this is harder than it sounds. Most headsets don’t have an on/off button. That is why it’s important to connect them to the charging cable when you are not using them. If you have a button, you should always remember to turn it off when not in use.

2 – Another way is to make sure that your microphone doesn’t pick up any noise. The microphone is one of the biggest battery drainers on your headset. You can do this by keeping it away from your mouth or by turning down the volume on your phone.

3 – You can also increase the battery life by enabling “power save” mode on your phone. This might not be the best option since you will have to re-enable it every time or place a shortcut on your home screen.

4 – It’s also good to know that when your Bluetooth is idle or in “power save” mode, it will still be searching for devices that are in proximity. This also draws power from the battery. The best way would be to turn it off completely when not in use since it will save both power and the battery.

5 – Even if your headset is not charging or being used, it still uses some power. That is why you should always disconnect it from the computer or devices when you are charging or finished charging it. This will ensure that no power is drawn from the battery.

The Final Thoughts

Charging your Bluetooth headset is as simple as charging your phone or any other device. All you have to do is connect it to the power source. Most people have both a computer and phone, so finding a place to charge it shouldn’t be an issue.

Even though the battery life is long, that doesn’t mean you should forget about it. Always remember to turn it off or disconnect it from the power source when you are charging it or finished charging. You will be able to use your Bluetooth headset for a long time and enjoy most of its features.
