How to Charge a Jawbone 2

By Irene A. Blake

The Aliph Jawbone 2 is a lightweight, noise-cancelling Bluetooth headset. Aliph has designed the Jawbone 2 headset to charge via a USB cable and AC adapter plug--included with the headset--connected to an electrical wall outlet or a USB cable connected to a computer. When the headset's LED indicator light flashes red every six seconds, or you hear a beep on an incoming call every two minutes, this indicates a low battery. At this point you simply need to plug the headset into the USB cable and choose a charging method.

USB Cable/AC Adapter Plug

Step 1

Insert your Jawbone 2, with the logo facing up, into the cap on the USB cable. Plug the USB cable into the AC adapter.

Step 2

Plug the AC adapter into an electrical socket. If connected correctly, the LED indicator light should turn red. Wait for the headset to fully charge and the LED indicator light to turn white---typically, within 50 minutes.

Step 3

Unplug the AC adapter from the electrical socket. Disconnect your charged Jawbone 2 headset from the USB cable.

USB Cable

Step 1

Turn on your computer. Turn off the computer's "Sleep" or "Standby" mode.

Step 2

Insert your headset, with the logo facing up, into the cap on the USB cable. Plug the USB cable into a USB port on your computer. Wait approximately 50 minutes for the headset to charge.

Step 3

Disconnect the USB cable from your computer and headset.

Tips & Warnings

  • If your Jawbone 2 hasn't charged after 50 minutes, wait an additional 60 to 70 minutes.
  • If the LED indicator light is still red after this time, check the USB cable cap and connections: check that none of the pins inside the USB cable are bent or broken. Check that the top of the cap lines up with the top of the headset. Plug the headset back in, check that the connection between the headset and cap isn't loose and try charging your Jawbone 2 again.
