When you find yourself low on power, it’s helpful to know how long it takes to charge your device. This video will go over the expected charge time of the Librem 5.
As shown in the video, you can get to 80% in about 2 hours and 12 minutes and 100% in just over 4 hours.
A full charge takes about 4 hours and gives you a run time of about 13 hours with the screen and wifi off but data-enabled over 4G. This mobile configuration is the perfect mode to put your phone in a while you’re out and about. You’ll still get phone calls, texts, and your general-purpose computer is available at a moment’s notice.
If you’re in a hurry, just over 2 hours of charging can get you to 80% yielding around 10.5 hours runtime while configured for mobile.
For now, charging is capped at 1.6 amps. Enabling faster and higher amperage charging is being worked on now that mass-production batteries can handle more current; once completed, you can expect your Librem 5 to charge even faster.
