rechargeable batteries discharge slowly when they are not in use.

the parent unit before you use it for the first time and when the batteries are low.
Please note that you have to charge the parent unit for the full 10 hours to have a
cordless operating time of 18 hours.
Note:When you start using the baby monitor, it takes four charge and discharge cycles before the
rechargeable batteries reach their full capacity.
