Here’s the Battery Life on Baby Monitors from Hubble Baby:
The Hubble Baby battery is designed to last up to 4-5 hours on a full charge. However, this time can vary based on the features used and the conditions in which it is being used. You will need to change it every night and only use it for nap time unless you have it plugged in.

How Long Do Batteries Typically Last on Hubble Baby Monitors?
The Hubble Baby monitors use an 1880 mAh Li-On battery that will last you up to 5 hours, but many times you will not get that much battery life on the unit.
You may need to replace the batteries after 5-10 years, that’s something we haven’t tested or found any good information about. But based on the type of battery (similar to what you find in cheaper smart phones with short battery life) you should expect it ti last around 5-10 years.
Are There Any Ways to Prolong the Battery Life?
The best way to preserve battery life on your Hubble baby monitor is to turn off the screen and just listen to the sound. This way you don’t need to waste battery on the screen which is the part of the device that uses the most battery.
You can also make sure to always charge it for at least 10 hours (over a full night) in order to have a fully-charged device every time.
Lastly, make sure to store it in an indoor temperature room and not outdoors or in a shed as the cold or heat may affect the battery life.
How Do I Know If My Hubble Baby Monitor Is Fully Charged?
To check the battery level on your Hubble Baby monitor, press the power button (the top button) once.
The monitor will turn on and show you how much battery there is left.
You can also just keep an eye on the indicator at the top but be aware that it doesn’t show a percentage number – you have to rely on the little battery icon to check how much is left.
Not very accurate.
Can Hubble Baby Monitors Work While Plugged In?
Yes! You can observe and listen to your baby using your Hubble Baby Monitor while it is plugged in.
If you want to use it as a plugged-in device, simply insert the power cord from the side of your device, and then press the “Power” button.
The screen will turn on, and you can still hear your baby over the speaker in your room.

How Long Does It Take to Charge Baby Monitors from Hubble Baby?
Hubble baby monitors are fully chargeable, so there is no need to replace batteries.
You can use the Hubble camera from birth; however, it may take up to 10 hours to fully charge the monitor before you should start using it.
Once you have fully charged your monitor, the battery will last between 3 and 5 hours depending on how often you use it.
That’s not very impressive.
If you are only checking in occasionally, then you can expect your battery life to be longer than if you are regularly checking in on your little one.
What Type of Batteries Do the Models Use?
The units use a 1.880 mAh battery which is pretty standard for baby monitors. Maybe a bit on the smaller side, as you will often find 2.500 mAh – 5.000 mAh batteries from bigger brands such as Angelcare and VAVA.
This is also the reason the batteries only last around 3-5 hours and not up to 10 hours as you will many times have with the bigger and more known brands in the industry.
How Much Do Extra Batteries Cost for Hubble Baby Monitors?
We haven’t been able to find replacement batteries from Hubble but we cannot tell if they started offering it since we researched this.
It doesn’t seem like you can replace the batteries but the Li-On batteries will typically last at least 8-10 years so there should be no trouble here.
Do Hubble Baby Monitors Always Beep When the Battery Is Low?
Yes, every Hubble monitor beeps when its battery is low so you know when to change it out.
The beep is loud enough that even if you’re in another room or outside, you’ll be able to hear it and change out the battery before it runs out completely and stops working altogether.
The Hubble Baby Monitor is a great choice.
You can see if your child is breathing, sleeping, and even if they’ve just woken up by using the two-way talk feature on this monitor. You can also zoom in and out to get a better look at what’s going on in your baby’s room.
The battery life on this device is around 3-5 hours, though – which is a bit disappointing.
