Can I leave my new jetpack plugged in all of the time or should it be unplugged when it finishes charging?

Can I leave my new jetpack plugged in all of the time or should it be unplugged when it finishes charging? The technician in the store said I could leave it plugged in, but I get a message on the screen when it's fully charged, telling me to unplug the power cord .

Lithium-Ion battery maintenance best practices would apply to the Jetpack just like anything else operating from a similar battery that you may own.

The Jetpack will continue to function when plugged in all the time to the best of its abilities.  However, Jetpacks are also sensitive to heat given off from the battery in frequent use.  You may find overtime the Jetpacks performance will begin to decay faster than you expect.  A best practice we preach is to only power on the Jetpack when it is needed and shut it down when you are done. This concept would apply to charging as well, only charge it when it is needed and let the device rest when not in active use.

If the goal is to use a Verizon device as a 24x7 connection then Verizon has better options for you such as USB modems and home router combos, 4G LTE Home Router and LTE Internet Installed systems.  Any of these choices are better suited to a typical 24x7 home use scenario you may be trying to address with your Jetpack.

Thank you for reaching out to us. We do recommend unplugging the device after it has completed charging. However, you are able to leave the device plugged in as well.
