3. Autonomy - Standby mode

3.1 Autonomy

MAÏA has a battery life of 6 hours!

60 minutes of charging gives you 6 hours of battery life when MAÏA is adjusted at a normal volume.

The battery is consumed more quickly if the volume is set to maximum. 

3.2 Standby modes

2 standby modes are programmed to optimize MAÏA’s battery life. MAÏA switches off automatically :

    • After 15 minutes in Pause mode. 
    • After 1 hour in Play mode.



5. Add your own tracks

MAÏA is a speaker that allows you to add your own mp3 tracks.

The Maiasaura card, included with MAÏA, is a 4GB microSD card. It is preloaded with content to 10% of its capacity. This means you have enough space to add your own mp3s!


5.1 Supported file

The format of the files added to the Maiasaura card must be .mp3

5.2 Supported SD cards

MAÏA works with any microSD card on the market. You can therefore add new mp3 tracks on the Maiasaura card or on your own microSD card. 

5.3 Reading the MAIASAURA card

Use the small USB drive adapter included with your MAÏA to insert the Maiasaura microSD card into the USB port on your PC or MAC.

5.4 Copying your own files to the Maiasaura card

a. Copy your own .mp3 files from your PC or MAC

b. Paste your files on the MAIASAURA card, in the "MP3 Parents" folder

c. When you have finished copying, eject the Maiasaura card before removing it manually.

d. Reinsert the Maiasaura card into your MAÏA.


Now you can listen to your own songs !   

6. Personalize your Maiasaura card

6.1 Creating a new folder/directory

To add your own mp3s, you can create new folders in the MP3 Parents folder. 


In this example, 3 new folders have been created. 

Then you can add your own mp3 files in each folder.

Organizing your files by folders allows your child to easily change directories without having to browse through all the added mp3s.

To change the directory, your child only needs to press the ON button once :


6.2 Creating your child's playlist

To create a Playlist, simply create a "Playlist" folder anywhere on your Maiasaura card and then add your child's favorite songs. 

3 "My Playlist" folders are already created by default under each of the 3 directories: Nursery Rhymes, Stories, Lullabie

To create a Nursery Rhymes Playlist, simply drag and drop your child's favorite nursery rhymes into the "0.My Playlist" folder

To create a Stories Playlist, simply drag and drop your child's favorite stories to the "0.My Playlist" folder

To create a Lullabies Playlist, simply drag and drop your child's favorite lullabies to the "0.My Playlist" folder.

6.3 Customize the playback order of the tracks

MAÏA plays the tracks in each directory according to when they were added to the card.

To personalize the playback order of a directory

1. Create a "MAÏA Backup" folder on your PC or Mac.

2. Cut and paste all the mp3 files from the Maiasaura card to the "MAÏA Backup" folder.

3. Copy and paste the mp3 files one by one from the "MAÏA Backup" folder back to the Maiasaura card in the desired playback order.

4. Eject the Maiasaura card, insert it back into your MAÏA and check that the playback is the order you have made.

6.4 Disable a track on the card if necessary

If you want to disable a particular Maiasaura track for any reason, just rename the extension (the last 3 characters after the dot) of the mp3 file to mp0.


After this change, the mp0 title will be automatically ignored by your MAÏA.  

If you want to make this track available again for your child later, just rename its extension to .mp3


6.4 Permanently delete a file from the Maiasaura card

When you delete a file from the Maiasaura card, it is not permanently deleted. This security measure prevents files from being inadvertently deleted. Any file deleted from the card is automatically moved to a hidden folder called: .Trashes

To display this folder, you just need to enable the hidden files and folders on your PC/MAC.  


Then you will be able to permanently delete the files that are under the .Trashes folder by a simple Cut and Paste from the card to the Desktop of your PC/MAC.
