How much battery will it get per charge?

According to Jabra (opens in new tab), the Elite 65t should get up to five hours of usage out of a single charge, though specifics on how this breaks down regarding listening time vs talk time can vary. Jabra seems to indicate that you can get up to five hours of talk time, but, based on our experience with the earbuds, talking a lot using the Elite 65t brings down the battery life to somewhere around four hours.

Additionally, using the Hearthrough function, which lets you listen to the sounds of the environment around you, will also impact the battery life of your earbuds.

Extend your buds' battery life with the charging case

The Jabra Elite 65t comes with a charging case that can extend the life of the earbuds when you're on the go. The case has enough power for 10 hours' worth of additional time for the earbuds, meaning you should be able to completely charge the Jabra Elite 65t twice before needing to charge the case again. The case itself charges via Micro-USB.

The charging case also lets you quickly extend the battery life of your Elite 65t if you need just a little bit more power. Throwing the earbuds into the case for about 15 minutes will get you around 90 minutes of listening time on the earbuds on top of whatever charge they had left.
