Why is the operating time of my parent unit shorter than the time mentioned in the manual?
The parent unit is being used for the first time and the operating time is less than 8 hours (SCD600) or 7 hours (SCD603, SCD609, SCD610). The rechargeable battery only reaches its full capacity after you have charged and discharged it four times (SCD600, SCD603) or three times (SCD609, SCD610).
The parent unit consumes a lot of energy when the video display is switched on continuously. Activate the voice activation mode to increase the operating time.
The volume of the parent unit may be set too high, which causes the parent unit to consume a lot of energy. Decrease the volume of the parent unit.
