Preserving battery life

Note: GPS 2 (Verizon device) guidance is available here

  1. Name places to assure power saving is activated
  2. Assure place borders are large enough, e.g. to include all of school’s buildings
  3. Use Runner Mode, 2-Way Voice (AngelCall), and 1-Way Voice (Listen-In) moderately
  4. Leave the device on the charger until ready to use
Some more About the battery:
  • The battery lasts between 16-24 hours with normal use after a full charge (4 hours).
  • Each 10% increment on the battery indicator represents just over one hour of activity.
  • Poor cellular reception depletes battery more quickly.
Note: Keeping the app open as well as receiving notifications do not affect the battery usage of the device.

From the AngelSense Blog:

Why Your Child with Autism Needs a BIGGER GPS Device 

Proactive alerts to routine deviations and providing consistent location updates in poor GPS and cellular conditions are indispensable features. Supporting these capabilities require enough power to sustain the device and can only be achieved with larger battery size and an equally accommodating device.
