To charge successfully, the temperature must be between
50°F to 95°F (10°C to 35°C). If the detector emits a low battery
alarm, charge the battery immediately.
When charging a new battery for the first time, fully charge the battery pack
before use (approximately 3.5 hours).
If a fully charged battery is inserted into the charger, the charger
status LED lights red for 6 to 10 minutes and then changes to
green (does not damage the battery).
The detector can remain in the cradle after charging is complete.
Charging the battery pack in temperatures above 86°F (30°C)
greatly reduces the life of the battery pack.
The battery pack may be hot immediately after charging.
Approximately three charges are required to achieve a full charge
capacity for a new battery pack.
