Battery life and lifespan of Wave Series and View Series

Updated over a week ago

Unless operated in an unconventional way, our Airthings Wave series and View series have an expected lifetime of many years, just like a normal smoke or carbon monoxide detector. Our conventional operating parameters are a temperature of 4 °C (39 °F) to 40 °C (104 °F) , and a 85% relative humidity or below for monitors with radon sensors.

The Corentium Home comes with 3x AAA batteries and is expected to have a battery life of approx. 1.5 - 2 years.

Wave Radon and Wave Plus come with 2x AA batteries and they are designed to have an expected battery life of approx. 1 year.

The Wave Mini comes with 3x AA batteries and they typically have a lifetime of approx. 2-3 years.

The View Plus comes with 6x AA batteries. It typically has a battery lifetime of approx. 8 months to a year. The battery life can be increased to approx. 2 years by enabling 'low power mode' in the dashboard.

Please note that all battery life estimates are based on standard alkaline AA batteries.

If monitors are Hub-connected and therefore using SmartLink instead of Bluetooth connectivity, they will have an extended battery lifetime, as SmartLink uses less power than Bluetooth.
