C&C BH Portable Headphone Amp (80 Hours from a Single Charge!) [Buyer Review] - Page 213

post #3181 of 3283
Using the 5V, 1 amp wall adapter is very effective. It only takes up to 5 hours to charge the BH2.

Yes, this. I always used the wall charger, never let my BH run flat, it would be done in 3 hours or less.

Surely with all the BH amps sold they should see interest in developing  another amp in the near future. Still remains one of the best $100 I spent in this hobby.

 

Still using this mainly as my portable amp, and yes, absolutely top class little amp here

 

Sometimes I wish that this could be just a tad warmer, then it would have been the ultimate portable amp :wink_face:

Same here. Using the same kind of adapter but still the red lights still refused to turn green with overnight charging. Nevertheless, I now charge it every weekend overnight and have never been caught flat yet.

Does the light turn off. If it does, it's fully charged.

Nope. The lights stayed on. But no worries here. Just following my ritual to charge it once a week and it's all good.

Do you charge it directly from the wall outlet?

Yes. Always uses a wall outlet.

You might have to use a different USB cable. It might be damaged or the flow of electricity is being disrupted somehow. It's unusual to see this if the amp wasn't dropped.

Does feels unusual. But I have 3 different sets of cables and wall adapters which yields the same results. Fortunately I have never run out of battery before which means it's being charged. Thank you so much trying to help in trouble shooting for a possible cause. Appreciate it Niyologist.

Ill chime in with how mine acts:

If I completely discharge it, and plug it in to a computer, I get a blinking red light that never turns solid.
If I completely discharge it and plug it into the wall I get a solid red light
If I partially discharge it (like 3-4 days use) and plug it into the comouter I get a solid red light

Edit: apparently I havent charged it long enough. ever. I left it plugged in overnight and the red light went off. I have left it plugged in overnight before and it was still on, but apparently it needed a little longer. so its All Good


I was concerned about the blinking red light because when I completely discharge it, it seems only the wall charger will charge it. I can leave it plugged into the computer for an hour and try to turn it on and it still wont power up. I know its not close to fully charged at that time, but it should have enough juice to power it up momentarily. Anyone else experience this? After a wall charge, its good as new.

I never intentionally discharge it. I just forget to turn off the amp sometimes and usually find it dead in the morning.

The red led never turns off in any situation.

How long do you use it for each day?

I just bought mine a few weeks ago and the pot has become hard to turn near the top end. Imagine that it's oiled smoothly, turns without any issues, then half way to the top it feels rough, like the knob is grinding against bare metal at some increments.

Is there an easy fix for this? Will it get worse? I've treated it like a baby, btw.
