If your Eargo stops functioning correctly, simply call us. Eargo also comes with a Loss & Damage Warranty - if you lose one or both of your Eargo devices, or if they are damaged beyond repair (for instance, if your dog eats them... yes, this happens - dogs like the smell of ears apparently), just give us a ring and we will send you a new replacement at a reduced cost. The Loss & Damage portion of your warranty can be used only once per device. However, the repair warranty will still remain in effect, even if a device has been replaced under the Loss & Damage Warranty.

What's the best way for me to clean, care, and maintain my Eargo devices?
Eargo devices are designed to help keep your ears clean. The Flexi Fibers may sweep out excess wax with each removal. There's often a sizable amount of wax that comes out during the cleaning period before using your devices. That amount should lessen over time. It's very important to keep your devices clean. Wax buildup or other debris may lessen their sound quality and performance. If you notice wax or other debris on your Eargo devices, simply clean with an alcohol wipe or cotton swab moistened with alcohol. Do not immerse or submerge your devices in alcohol as this will damage their electronics. If wax is inside the dome, you can get it out by first letting your Eargo devices dry overnight, and then by gently wiping the dome with an alcohol pad or a cotton swab moistened with alcohol. Now, let's all agree to stop talking about ear wax.

Before placing your Eargo devices in the charger, make sure that your devices are completely dry. Long-term exposure to moisture can harm them. Let your devices air dry or dry them with a soft, lint free cloth. Gotta be lint free. Don't want to be trading ear wax for lint. Don't use hot air or a hair dryer to dry your Eargo devices. It might give them a stylish, carefree, wind-blown look, but it could also damage their internal electronics.

Eargo devices are not waterproof. Please do not wear them while swimming or in the shower.

Proper storage of your Eargo devices will increase their lifespan and keep them in top working condition. They're kind of like people in that way. When not in use, store them in the charger. That'll keep them fully charged.

Maximizing Battery Life
To maximize the battery life of your Eargo devices, it is best to wear them all day until their batteries run low or run out, and then recharge them fully overnight in the charger. To maximize the battery life of the charger, please place it on the charging base each night.
