• If the charge indicator starts to flash red during charging, remove the
battery pack and then reattach it. If this does not solve the problem, it
means that the battery pack is defective and needs to be replaced.
• Use only the specified battery pack.
• Battery packs naturally discharge even when they are not loaded in
the Data Collector. Use a battery pack as soon as possible after
• The allowable battery pack charging temperature range is 0 C to 40 C.
Outside this range, charging can result in battery fluid leakage and
generation of heat. It can also cause deterioration of battery pack
performance and shorten battery pack life.
• For best charging results, keep the Optical Communication Unit, Data
Collector and battery pack contacts clean by periodically wiping them
