    Valentin reacted to MED-EL Moderator in ELECTRICIDAD ESTÁTICA   
    Hi @Valentin, thanks for tagging us
    As already mentioned, even though MED-EL devices have several integrated safety features, there is a small risk that ESD might harm the audio processor / implant. But in most cases wearing a wool hat or cotton cap does not cause any ESD.
    Kind regards, 
    Barbara

    Hola @EVA MARIA CANTERO MATEOS
    Soy usuario de Rondo (el procesador anterior a Rondo 2)  y he llevado gorro sin inconveniente. Lo que evito es ponerme o quitarme un sueter por ejemplo que es cuando se genera una electricidad estática mayor. Si haces la prueba, cuando te quitas una de esas prendas en la oscuridad, se observa un destello que no es otra cosa sino la electricidad estática que se genera. Esta podría dañar el procesador.
    Un gorro de lana no genera tanta "energía", pero al usar Rondo has de tener cuidado tanto al ponerlo como al quitarlo, porque si no se hace con cuidado, este saldrá despedido. Si se golpea con el suelo por ejemplo, se podría romper. La electricidad estática es un problema para los dispositivos eléctricos, pero no creo que un gorro dañe a Rondo.
    Por favor si estoy equivocado, que @MED-EL Moderator me corrija

    Hi Eva María
    I am a user of Rondo (previous version of Rondo 2) and I have worn a hat without inconvenience. What I avoid is putting on or taking off a sweater for example, which is when higher static electricity is generated. If you do the test, when you take off one of those garments in the dark, you see a flash (the static electricity that is generated). This may damage the processor.
    A wool cap does not generate as much "energy", but when using the processor you have to be careful both when putting it and removing it, because if it is not done carefully, it will be fired. If you hit the ground for example, it could break. Static electricity is a problem for electrical devices, but I don't think a cap will harm Rondo.
    Please, If it is wrong, @MED-EL Moderator, correct me.

    i just concluded my experiment of charging just one Rondo2 per night on the portable charger. I got EIGHT nights of charging, leaving the charging pad plugged in to the portable charger eight to nine hours per night...double what I got when charging two Rondo2s simultaneously! 
    This portable charger is great! I would highly recommend every Rondo2 user have one...for travel, for camping, for power outages or other emergencies, etc. 
    Thank you Mary Beth for leading me to it!😊

    Starting with a fully charged Anker PowerCore 10400  portable charger which has 2 USB ports (charging was completed early in the day of the first night I began using it), I was able to charge both of my Rondo2s 4 consecutive nights. Since the charger stays on until the Rondo2 air pads are disconnected In the morning, it was on 34 hours during those charges. I attempted a fifth charge but the portable charger completely depleted after about two hours.
    Being bilateral, I am beyond pleased with the capability of this portable charger! Not only is it very reassuring to know I will now have charging capabilities for my Rondo2s in the event of any future power outages, it is small and will “travel” very easily, making Rondo2 charging easily possible anywhere I might be.

    @Mary Beth don't worry, take your time. Try it with some charges with same powerbank charge to know what could be the performance. Take note about mAh of your powerbank for better accuracy. It's not the same a 2000 mAH that 4000 mAh powerbank.

    Hey @Valentin. I used my Rondo2 on Saturday starting around 8 am for around 2.5 hours. Then turned it off for about 3 hours. Then wore it for 9 hours. Slept for 5 hours then put it back on from around 6:20 am until it died the next day at around 11:20 am.
    By my calculations that was battery life of approximately 19 hours on 1 charge! I am very impressed with the Rondo2 battery life thus far.

    Guys, sincerely this is a great news that I din't know. Power supply fault is not a normal situacion today, howeber as Joan comment, It's happen. @Joan, have you tried charge Rondo2 with power bank two or three times, without charge the powerbank before?  This give us two or  three days of autonomy.

    As you know, I share your same concerns about battery life.  We are so dependent on power to hear.
    Long travel days, long days due to celebrations/emergencies/etc, power outages........... concern me.
    As well as the effect of time on the built in battery.  All of the devices I have that use rechargeable batteries, end up lasting less and less hours as time goes by.

    what really worries me is the battery life, on a long trip for example. If Rondo 2 has not disposable batteries option, It could be a problem.

    Hi there, Mary Beth, I continue with Rondo yet, so I'm reading a lot about users with new "gadget" before to upgrade. Sincerelly when it's time to upgrade, I will continue with one piece processor. I think it is more clear and confortable unlike unit and coil processors.
    I'm accord with joan, I think that BT technology it would be a great improvement for this device to avoid using a third party device for  T or MT functions. For avoid battery consumption, this option must to be able to activate or desactivate it.
    And yes, actually I don´t use devices as Quatro or Artone for  Rondo. It woluld be some hard the TV, computer, Radio... but my ear is doing a good work. Probably with any of them help me a lot.

    Mary Beth, I think they want to avoid people forget rechargeable battery (that are a serious problem) mantain  inside of dryer. New people when receive the kits are no familiar with batteries, procedures, drying. For avoid issues, MED EL, indicate neither batteries on drying, and they avoid some or a  lot of problems.

    I was at the clinic yesterday for routine check over and we got talking about this. Not necessarily about the breaking as I have not had that issue but the fact that it is very difficult to get the leash back on wen you change covers. The 'solution' (which should address breakages too) they use is to go back to the old fishing wire type leash (a la Rondo 1), make a loop in the end and loop it round the comms port cover, then close it. Working fine so far and won't come of when the cover needs changing.
