Precautions To Follow

Before we learn how to charge a hydrogen water bottle, let’s go over some important things you need to know before using one. This is especially crucial for first-time users.

Hydrogen water generator bottles are not your typical water bottles. Powered by lithium-ion batteries, they have a specialized component called the generator module, which houses the main ELECTROLYZING ELEMENTS. These are highly sensitive to external factors like chemicals and temperature, so it’s essential to handle them with care.

Keeping that in mind, certain precautions need to be exercised for safety.

Make sure that the generator cup is firmly fixed to the bottom of your bottle before you connect it to the charger.

ALWAYS use the charger provided in the kit that comes with your generator. Modern hydrogen water bottles support USB Type-C cables or even wireless chargers, but please DO NOT connect your phone charger to the machine, as it may vary in amperage and/or voltage and may result in damage to the battery.

Similarly, do not use the charger of your bottle with any other device. It is solely meant for use with the device it comes with.

Ensure to never use the hydrogen bottle while it is powering up. This may cause electric shock.

These precautions are generally applicable to all modern hydrogen water cups, pitchers, and jugs you will find today. However, I would strongly insist you go through the instruction manual provided by the manufacturer in the kit.

So, How To Charge A Hydrogen Water Bottle?

When you unbox a brand-new hydrogen water bottle, you will find it includes an adapter and cable designed specifically for it. Always use this charging kit when you need to recharge your bottle.

So, what steps are involved in charging it safely and effectively? Let’s find out below.

  • STEP 1: Fold up the silicone cover flap of the charging socket located at the rear end of the bottle, and plug the cable into the port.
  • STEP 2: Next, connect the narrow end of the USB cable to the charging socket.
  • STEP 3: Then, plug the other end of the cable into the adapter’s USB port.
  • STEP 4: Plug the adapter into an electricity source and switch it on.
  • STEP 5: Your hydrogen water bottle will start charging. Check the indicator light; it will either blink or glow red while powering up.
  • STEP 6: Wait for 2 to 3 hours for the machine to recharge completely (check the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific generators). When the process is complete, the light will either turn green or go off, indicating the bottle is fully charged.
  • STEP 7: Now, switch off the power source and disconnect it from the charger. Your hydrogen bottle is now fully charged and ready to use.

Please remember that some H2 water bottles might need to be charged fully before the first use. So, I would suggest you read the instruction manual for the manufacturer’s specific guidelines for using the bottle.

But, How Many Times Can You Generate Hydrogen Water With One Charge?

It can be difficult for me to specify the exact number of times (cycle times) you can prepare hydrogen water after fully charging the bottle, as this varies between brands. However, having used at least twenty different products, I can say that generally, this number ranges between 8 and 30 cycles per charge.

This factor directly depends on the battery capacity of your hydrogen bottle. The higher the battery capacity, the more cycles you can get between charges.

For example, my hydrogen water machine with a 1000 mAh battery allows for roughly 8 to 12 uses per charge. On the other hand, the one with a 3000 mAh battery is more powerful, allowing for significantly more electrolysis cycles after a full charge.

How To Maximize The Battery Life?

Like other portable devices, hydrogen bottles are equipped with lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, the lifespan of which generally depends on two key factors: power capacity and frequency of use.

Battery power capacities of hydrogen water bottles typically range from as low as 850 mAh to a standard 1000 mAh, and even higher capacities like 1500 mAh, 2500 mAh, or even 3000 mAh, as I have seen.

Opting for a model with a higher battery capacity ensures longer usage times between charges, making it suitable for frequent use. This not only conserves power but also extends the bottle’s operational LIFESPAN.

Pro Tips For Charging

Always ensure to keep the charger dry and keep it away from direct sunlight.

Do not hold your hydrogenerator bottle while charging. Place it on a flat, dry surface before plugging in the adapter.

When the battery LOW indicator light illuminates, put the generator for charging for 2 to 3 hours until the battery light shows that it is fully powered up. But DO NOT OVERCHARGE your bottle.

Once your hydrogen bottle is fully charged, as indicated by the LED light, disconnect it from the adapter. Keeping it plugged in all day will cause premature failure of the battery.

Key Takeaways

It takes roughly 2 to 3 hours to fully charge a hydrogen water machine.

These bottles come with varying battery capacities with different cycle times: 8-30 cycles/charge.

We can effectively maximize the battery life by following adequate precautions and best practices for powering it up.

The battery should be fully used before recharging, and overcharging must always be avoided.

With a single full charge, you can use a hydrogen water generator 15 to 30 times, depending on the battery capacity.
