- Leather: Protect the leather like you would your shoes - by applying a coating of leather protector, mink oil or polish. Some leather protectors are better than others! Some can deepen or change the colour of your leather or leave a shiny residue. We recommend first testing the protector on a non-visible area before applying to the entire piece.
- Magnets: Striking the magnets against a hard surface can damage its outer protective coating. This can result in sharp edges and ultimately non-functional magnets. To prevent this kind of chipping, avoid snapping the magnets together. Whenever possible, store the Edge snapped to fabric or other soft surface.
- Weather: The Vega Edge has been fine in light rain and snow, but it's not waterproof. Avoid wearing in heavy rain, and don't submerge it in water.
- Batteries: The Edge uses a lithium-ion rechargeable coin-cell battery (LIR2450). This battery can sustain approximately 500 recharge cycles. We designed the Edge to need recharging about once a week with consistent commuter use—which means that the battery should theoretically last almost 10 years! The battery life can be extended by using the flashing modes more often than solid-light modes.
