Confused Corsair Virtuoso Wireless battery question

I've recently bought the headset, 1 day old as of posting this thread. I've installed the iCUE software and updated all firmware. Around 6-7 hours of usage from high battery status, the headset is already at low charge, and the RGB is even off(though I'm not sure if that affects the said 20-hour battery life). I haven't really tried draining the battery to see if it really reaches around 20 hours.

Does anyone know how much battery percentage is left with the headset when it warns you that the battery is low? Thank you.

I think I have run mine much longer than that. I would charge it up fully first, then see how long it goes, till it starts warning you the battery is getting low.

I did charge it up until it has a high charge, though I'm not sure if it was fully-charged. 11 hours from high battery, I've got a critically low battery status, but I still decided to keep using it. After an hour, it somehow went from critically low to just low. I think my headset's battery charge isn't being properly displayed. I'll try to completely drain my headset and then charge it back up and see if it'll display a more appropriate battery charge left.

By the way, is it fine to keep the headset plugged in from a power outlet, fully-charged? I plan to charge it while I'm asleep and the FAQs said that it just takes 1-2 hours to fully charge the headset.

I would just let your computer charge it up via the +5v Standby Power. It will be less current and generally better than charging it faster and keeping it plugged in for hours, after it has been fully charged. A wall charger should be fine as Lithium Ion batteries require a protection circuit. Though that is purely my opinion and not from an official Corsair source.
