Storing Breelib

KEEP BREELIB SOMEWHERE SAFE

To opportunistic criminals Breelib may appear to be of value so it is important to keep both your PRIMARY and RESERVE Breelib devices somewhere safe.

STORE BREELIB IN NORMAL CONDITIONS

It is important to store Breelib in a place where the device cannot get either too hot, or too cold. If Breelib is stored outside of its normal operating conditions, between 0 - 40ºC, it will not turn ON or charge until it has adjusted to more suitable surroundings.

If you are in a country where it is extremely humid and the moisture from the air settles on your skin, the moisture can also get onto the electrics inside the base unit. If this happens Breelib will not turn on or charge until it has dried out in more suitable less humid conditions. Moving Breelib quickly between extremes of temperature can also cause moisture to settle on the electrics and stop Breelib from working until it has had chance to dry out.

► For more information why Breelib will not turn ON or charge please see Breelib information sheet 8.

Do not get the base unit wet

Alt tag

It is important to keep the base unit dry at all times. Should water get inside the base unit it can damage the electrics and cause Breelib to malfunction or stop working completely. If this happens use your RESERVE device and make sure you keep it dry.

When you return home call the Breelib Support Centre as soon as possible who will arrange a replacement and for the collection of your damaged device.

When rinsing, cleaning or disinfecting the nebuliser unit and base unit, always move the base unit away so it cannot get wet.

The base unit and carry case can be cleaned by wiping the surfaces with a clean damp cloth or disinfecting wipe.
