Avoid leaving the charger in direct sunlight and never overheat or leave batteries in an area where temperatures may exceed 60℃. Extreme temperatures can cause the batteries inside the unit to ignite. For optimum and safe use operate the charger in temperatures between 0℃ and 40℃. However the charger may be used in sub zero temperatures down to -20℃ at reduced performance.
Ensure that there is adequate air flow around the charger to prevent overheating during charging and discharging operations. Do not operate inside a bag or covered in anyway.
Avoid operation in wet or damp conditions.
After 30 or so partial discharge cycles, it is advisable to let the charger discharge and then recharge to prolong life.
The typical estimated life of the Lithium batteries in a charger unit is about two to three years or 300 to 500 charge cycles, whichever occurs first. One charge cycle is a period of use from fully charged, to fully discharged, and fully recharged again. The batteries will degrade over time depending on use and application and due to natural ageing effects which are irreversible. Consider replacing your charger if you notice the following:
Do not use a damaged charger unit. Do not puncture or attempt to dismantle or repair the charger as this may lead to risk of fire or injury to person or property. It will also invalidate any warranty or guarantee.
Do not subject the unit to physical shocks or handle in a rough way. Keep the charger away from children and pets.
Please use the connectors and cables supplied with the product unless otherwise suggested in this manual or on our website energenie4u.co.uk.
For extended periods of non-use discharge to about 50% and store in a cool place between 4℃ and 25℃. Lithium batteries continue to slowly discharge (self-discharge) when not in use or while in storage. Check the charge status of an unused unit every 6 months to ensure adequate charge is held in the unit over a longer period.
Products containing Lithium Polymer batteries are subject to disposal and recycling regulations. Dispose of responsibly according to local regulations and ensure packs are fully discharged if possible prior to safe disposal.
