First, make sure your speaker is adequately charged before powering on.

  2. Connect the micro USB cable into the charging port of your speaker. The other end must be connected to a USB charging block or a powered USB port to charge the speaker.
    Charge port

    Depending on the method being used to charge your speaker, charging times will vary. Charging your speaker to full takes approximately 4 hours.

    Always remember to firmly replace the rubber flap on your Link 10 when the charging port is not in use. This flap is part of what allows your Link 10 to achieve its IPX7 water resistance rating.

The five lights above the power button on the rear of the speaker indicate how much battery life remains on your speaker.
