If you are using a wall outlet adapter, try charging using a different adapter or different outlet.
Try using the USB port on a laptop or desktop computer to charge the NozeBot. This can help reset the charging behavior.

Which level of suction should I use?
The NozeBot has three settings: low, medium, and high. All three are safe to use on your child. We recommend starting with the lowest setting to gauge success—use higher settings based on your judgment and the thickness of mucus. Remember, you’re the boss! And feel free to try it out on yourself.
