Battery

Battery:
"Also, the battery life is not great, you have to make sure you charge it before every use, only adding to the frustration of the charger."
_
"Pros:Good sound qualitySmall and lightBattery indicator on deviceCons:Poor battery lifeProprietary chargerMy major complaint and hence the 2 stars is with the charging adapter."
_
"It would have been so much better to include a 2.5mm or 3.5mm hole you could plug your own cable into (I've seen other bluetooth transmitters do that).The JayBird has a number of other features that make it likely you'll break it or damage the battery and have to buy a new one."
_
"That means it runs itself out of battery if you don't use it for 2-3 months (which happened to me) and likely damages the battery."
_
"The manufacturer obviously hopes you'll forget to turn it off so it runs completely out of battery and damages the battery so you have to buy a new one."
_
"It is nice to have this transmitter, I liked a lot it's small size and long battery."
_
"Battery seems to still be holding a good charge but there seems to be some weird problem with the physical cable connection that happened abruptly with no indication of how or why..."
_
"The battery life seems to be reasonable."
_
"Has great range and battery life."
_
"works well with my LG tone headset tho, and battery life is great (again though, what good are headphones if the music skips eery 5 seconds."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"The only downside is the wife has to have the bluetooth headset on her right side with the phone in my left pocket or audio starts to cut out."
_
"Standard, A2DP bluetooth sounded terrible on such a detailed speaker - there was loud static, hiss, and a general poor definition of sound."
_
"I have a problem with the bluetooth in my Samsung Focus 914 WP7 phone."
_
"But one thing it is good at is turning an non bluetooth device into a bluetooth device."
_
"I was originally looking at three bluetooth mirroring devices:Sena SM10-01 SM10 Dual Stream Bluetooth Stereo TransmitterKOKKIA A10m (NEW Luxurious Black) MULTI-STREAM 3.5mm Universal EDR Bluetooth Stereo Transmitter Splitter (can stream to 2 EDR receivers concurrently) for iPod iPhone iPad iPod Touch iPod Shuffle, e-Book Readers, Sandisk Sansa, Zune, Tablets, SONY PSP, N...Interphone Dual 3.5mm Stereo Bluetooth TransmitterThe first one has good reviews but is very expensive."
_
"I love this little bluetooth device."
_
"Purchased this primarily for in-flight entertainment as well as to go with my Jaybird bluetooth headset."

Cable

Cable:
"And why they decided to go with a non standard USB charging cable is beyond annoying."
_
"They also use a tiny barrel connector charging port instead of micro USB so if you ever lose their USB charging cable with the barrel connector on the other end, you're stuck buying a new device, paying some ridiculous price for their proprietary cable, or spending a lot of time trying to find something compatible without knowing the exact inside and outside sizes and polarity of the barrel connector you need."
_
"Since it uses a special charging cable, the requirements for charging it would be nice (voltage and polarity of connector) I have already misplaced this cable."
_
"Another problem I have with the Jaybird is the charging cord is not a standard mini or micro usb, so if you're traveling that's just one more cord you're going to have to pack."
_
"Battery seems to still be holding a good charge but there seems to be some weird problem with the physical cable connection that happened abruptly with no indication of how or why..."
_
"I would have subtracted a star for the cable appearing flimsy, but given that this is the only Apt-X transmitter on Amazon, and at such a reasonable price compared to the Sennheiser equivalent, I have to give the JayBird uSport a full 5 stars! "
_
"Since it uses a special charging cable, the requirements for charging it would be nice (voltage and polarity of connector) I have already misplaced this cable."
_
"There are no visible damage to the cord cable."
_
"I love the freedom from the connecting cable of traditional headphones."

Charging

Charging:
"And why they decided to go with a non standard USB charging cable is beyond annoying."
_
"I don't know what they called inappropriate charging habits."
_
"Also, the battery life is not great, you have to make sure you charge it before every use, only adding to the frustration of the charger."
_
"But for some RIDICULOUS reason, they use some terrible proprietary charger on this one."
_
"Pros:Good sound qualitySmall and lightBattery indicator on deviceCons:Poor battery lifeProprietary chargerMy major complaint and hence the 2 stars is with the charging adapter."
_
"I sent them back to have them checked and they said it was not covered by warranty because it was not sweat damage, and the damage was probably caused by inappropriate charging habits."
_
"Since it uses a special charging cable, the requirements for charging it would be nice (voltage and polarity of connector) I have already misplaced this cable."
_
"Battery seems to still be holding a good charge but there seems to be some weird problem with the physical cable connection that happened abruptly with no indication of how or why..."
