I was reading the Q&A on different BT 5.0 transmitters on Amazon, and several said things like the quotes below. I guess there are two potential issues requiring a button press:
1) auto-off after not being used for a while,
2) staying off after a power outage.
bchassy, it sounds like your device does not have issue nr 2. There is no required button press after auto-off either?
"I just installed this product to use with my bluetooth headphones. The transmitter turns off after each use. This means I have to get up and reset."
- "Not a question, but, yes, it does that. When you disconnect the device, the transmitter shuts down in a few minutes. You have to turn it on and pair your device each time. Works very well otherwise."
"Does this automatically turn on when plugged into a power source?"
- "It will not automatically turn on friend, just start charging."
