The Hushh has a wide volume range, giving you a lot of flexibility in terms of how loud you play it and where you use it.
Most customers find low to medium volume quite sufficient and this will also mean that the charge lasts for longer as the higher volume, the shorter the battery life.
We do not recommend having the Hushh close to your baby on the maximum volume it is very loud. It is different to the Baby Shusher for example, which is designed for use close to baby and operates for a limited time rather than continuously. The maximum volume would be suitable if you are using the Hushh plugged in across the room from your baby and only for short periods.
Battery Power Info:
The Hushh has an internal rechargeable battery which means you never need to replace batteries or worry about your child opening the machine and playing with batteries.
The battery is charged using the USB cable supplied with your unit.
The Battery can last all night, depending on a number of factors:
- You will get the best battery life from your Hushh when it is used on medium volume without the nightlight and is expected to last 12 hours of continuous noise.
- Basically the lower the volume played at, the lower your Hushh battery will last (and considerably longer when the light is not used)
- The 'Bright White' (middle sound) has been shown to have the best battery time.
- We recommend charging with a good quality charger, such as the good quality chargers supplied with a phone or a Balkin brand charger. Cheap phone chargers take much longer to charge and may not fully charge your Hushh.
The Nightlight Function and Battery Life:
Hushh has a very small amber nightlight. We recommend only using this function if you are using Hushh plugged in. If you are using battery power, use of the nightlight, particularly if also using high volume, will cut the battery life down significantly.
- Used with maximum volume and the nightlight, the Hushh battery will last less than 5 hours.
- When used on maximum volume without the light, you can expect around 10 hours.
- Volume also has a significant impact on battery life.
