When you are visiting Lithuania from a different country double check your Jabra Solemate can be used with a 240v supply. If it came from a country which uses a lower voltage (for example 110 volts) make sure the Jabra Solemate is dual voltage (marked with a 100-240 volt notation) otherwise you may need to use an additional power converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging.

After you have set up the speaker you can turn off the default 'Solemate is connected' announcements by holding down the Volume down button when turning on the Jabra Solemate until you hear 'Sound prompts off'.
