  • Page 11: Charging Batteries

    Charging Batteries New batteries should be charged fully before first use. The life and capacity of a Lithium Ion battery pack can vary significantly depending on the discharge current and the environment in which it is used. When a battery is placed in a charging pocket, the battery charger begins charging the battery. There is a slight delay while the charger evaluates the condition of the battery (ambient temperature, remaining charge, etc.) before charging begins.

    Inserting a Battery into the Charging Pocket Caution! It is important that battery packs are inserted into the charging pocket correctly. Inserting the battery incorrectly could result in damage to the battery pack or the charger. Caution! Do not “slam” the battery pack into the charging pocket. Damage may result. When preparing the battery pack for insertion into the battery charging pocket, hold the battery with the battery charging contacts in line with the charging contacts in the charging pocket.

    Chapter 2: Set up a Battery Maintenance Routine Introduction The Marathon uses a 42Whr Extended or 62Whr Extended battery. Minimum battery life is 500 charge/discharge cycles before replacement. Hand held devices and body worn devices use Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) main battery packs that are lightweight and relatively small.
  • Page 22: Peripheral Devices

    If the peripheral device does not have its own power source, and is designed to draw power from your Marathon battery, be aware that the way you use the peripheral device affects the drain on your battery. Peripheral devices affect your battery life in the following ways: The number of peripheral devices you use affects the drain on your batteries.
  • Page 23: Maintenance Routine

    Maintenance Routine Managing your batteries with a battery maintenance routine is intended to ensure: You get as much battery life as you can. You need fewer batteries per shift. Every shift has fully charged batteries. There is a battery slot on the charger for each battery at the end of every shift. All unused batteries are placed in a charger at the end of every shift.
