After I initially received Glass, I opened the package (very attractive Apple-like packaging) and then followed the instructions and turned on the unit. After putting the unit on I was greeted with the battery icon and that was all. Figuring that the battery was low, I used the attached power cable and charged the unit for several hours.
That evening I took home Glass to play with and was able to turn on the unit, connect it to my Apple iPhone IOS Glass App and go through some of the tutorials and take a photo or two, Google a few things with voice, and stumble around the menus. I then turned off the unit and put it away after 15 minutes or so of use. My wife inquired whether or not I could rename the Google Glass, rather than saying aloud "Ok Glass" over and over, which she found irritating.
|I beginning to think my Google Glass won't hold a charge very well at all.|
The next morning in my office I took out Glass and put them on and was greeted with the same battery icon. I then charged the unit again, this time from 10am to 2:30pm. I turned the unit on with it's interior side button and put on Glass. This time I got the battery 46% charged (so 8 hours for complete charge?). Ok, you would expect some more life after Glass was connected to a regular power strip for four hours (yes, it is on!) and the charge indicator light is slowly pulsating- as it should when charging.
I am new with Glass but used to working with peripherals and emerging technology in general. While I realize I need to spend more time with Glass, I am starting to think that the unit simply won't charge very well at all.
The jury is out (I realize), I need to spend more time with Glass, and more updates are sure to follow.
