Using the Imager
Battery Safety & Usage
Batteries should be stored in an ambient temperature of -4°F (-20°C) to 67.9°F (+20°C). Lithium batteries will self-discharge during storage, so they should be fully charged before storage. Self-discharge may affect long term battery performance.
It is recommended that the battery should be charged in a set time, as listed, at the following ambient temperatures:
- -4°F (-20°C) to 67.9°F (+20°C) once every six months
- 67.9°F (+20°C) to 113°F (+45°C) once every three months
- 113°F (+45°C) to 149°F (+60°C) once every month
For optimal battery life, if the imager is used on an infrequent basis, the battery should not be stored for long periods of time with the remaining charge level below 50%. For very long storage times with no use, the battery should have a 20% to 30% charge level. The ambient temperature during charging should be between 32°F (0°C) to 104°F (+40°C). If under 32°F (0°C), the battery capacity and its ability to accept a full charge will be diminished. If over 104°F (+40°C), the battery may overheat during the charging process, causing permanent damage.
- Never disassemble, incinerate, or puncture the battery
- Never short circuit the battery
- Keep the battery dry
- Keep the battery out of reach of children
- Always dispose of the battery in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
