Answer to: How frequently should I charge the Microsoft Band?The Band's battery normally lasts about two days, so it’s recommended that you charge the Microsoft Band during periods when it is turned off, or when it is not in use. Charging the Band in the car on the way to work, or at home while cooking or taking a shower could work. The batteries should reach nearly 80% charge within 30 minutes of charging, and a full charge in approximately 90 minutes. If your Band isn't lasting that long, try the tips on the Troubleshooting Page.
