How to charge Boat Rockerz 255?

Boat Rockerz 255 Charging port

The Boat Rockerz 255 comes with a Micro USB port. This port is available on the right side of the neckband, and it’s covered with a cap. 

Remember that Boat 255 doesn’t come with any charger. It only comes with a micro USB cable.

Using this cable, we can charge the Boat Rockerz 255. Just put the cable in the port, and use any low voltage charger to charge it.

Now the most concerning question is, Can I charge boat rockerz 255 with mobile charger?

No, it is advised not to charge your Boat Rockerz 255 with a mobile charger or fast charger.

If you have a slow charger of 5W or a maximum of 10W, then you can charge it with them.

But if you use a charger of 18W, 25W, 30W, or more, then it might damage the battery, because the tiny battery of Boat 255 can’t handle this much amount of power.  

It might not blast the battery, but it will deteriorate the battery over time.

Boat Rockerz 255 Charging Time?

Now let’s talk about the Boat Rockerz 255 Charging Time. This earphone comes with a 110 mAh battery. Now it might seem too small, but it’s decent considering the fact that it’s an earphone.

On the official statement, the Boat Rockerz takes around 1.5 hours to fully charge, with an ideal charger.

In our testing, we found that these numbers are true.

Now the question is, what is an ideal charger?

5 Volt 1 Amp charger is suitable to be called an ideal charger. Anything more or less than that might change the charging time respectively.

Now there is one big question, Do you need to buy a separate charger for Boat Rockerz 255?

Buying an extra charger will increase the overall cost of this earphone. Instead, using an old charger is a good idea.

If you have an old slower charger at home, then there is no need to buy a new one. If you don’t have one, then try to manage a charger from someone else.

Boat Rockerz 255 battery life?

The major point of concern, How is the Boat Rockerz 255 battery life?

The company claims a battery life of 4 hours at 60% volume. But is it true?

In our time with Boat Rockerz 255, we had some different results from what the company has claimed.

We mostly listen to music at 80% volume all the time. While doing so, we were getting an average battery life of around 3.5 hours or close to 4 hours.

It’s quite interesting to see that an earphone is performing even better than what the company has claimed.

At 60% volume, we were getting more than 4 hours of battery life. For better understanding, take a look at the table below.

Volume %ageBattery Life
At 50% Volume4.5 to 5 hours
At 60% Volume4+ hours
At 80% Volume3.5 to 4 hours
At 90% or above VolumeClose to 3.5 hours

If you listen to music for 4-5 hours a day, then you will be satisfied with the battery life of this earphone.

Does boat rockerz 255 support fast charging?

In some situations where you have to go outside, but your Bluetooth earphone has no battery, the fast charging can be so convenient.

Luckily, the Boat Rockerz 255 supports fast charging.

The company claims that the 15 minutes of charging can give 45 minutes of music playback.

In our testing, we found this claim to be mostly true.

The earphone was dead, and we charged it for 15 minutes. Then we started listening to music at 80% volume. During this testing, the Boat 255 lasted for around 30 minutes.

If you keep the volume at 60%, then you can get a battery life of 45 minutes.

Also, this earphone can be fully charged in 1.5 hours. 

So overall, the Boat Rockerz 255 supports fast charging.
