Normal use of a wearable device includes contact with the skin. On a daily basis, we can use different chemical products like sun block, lotion, mosquito repellant and others. These products combined with the natural sweat our body produces can create a layer on top of the contact pins used for charging Tinitell. This is why the back of the device should be cleaned on a regular basis. Summer season and the increase in outdoor activities might require a higher cleaning frequency than other seasons.
How to clean the Tinitell band?
Use a soft cloth with soapy water or alcohol to remove any dirt, particles or excess moisture on the device band, being careful not to let any excess water enter the device. Please don't use soapy water on the Tinitell charging pins. Alcohol is non conductive and dries quickly, so you can also use it on the back of the device, to clean the charging pin area.
How to clean the charging port?
Use a soft cloth with alcohol to remove any dust, particles or excess moisture on the device. Alcohol is non conductive and dries quickly. Please only do this on the pin area to avoid removing the Tinitell IMEI number from the backplate.
If this is not sufficient, please use a eraser like the one found on the back of a pencil and rub the contact points on your back plate. Any type of eraser is suitable to use, but the harder the eraser the better. After using the eraser, clean again with alcohol and soft wipe to remove any remaining particles.
How NOT to clean the charging port?
Do not use any metallic product or abrasive material. Doing this will create scratched surface on the contact pad, making more difficult the connection between the charging cable and the connection pad on the back of Tinitell. In case a product has been cleaned with an abrasive material, warranty would be void.
Do not use acetone or nail polish. These chemicals can react with the plastic and metallic parts on Tinitell and do irreparable damage. Any damage due to the use of these type of chemical would void the warranty. Water should not be used, since it will rust the metallic parts on the back of Tinitell, and takes a long time to dry.
