How do I care for my battery in my Genius Handheld?

Care for the lithium-ion battery in your Genius Handheld™ to increase the battery life and prevent hazardous battery failures. To care for your battery, complete the following instructions:

Storing your battery outside your Genius Handheld

If you store your battery outside your Genius Handheld, complete the following steps:
Step 1. Cover the metal terminals on your battery with non-conductive electrical tape.
Step 2. Store your battery in a cool, dry place, away from any flammable items, for example, store the battery by itself on top of sand or on concrete.

Important: Do not place your battery in a sealed container.

Checking your battery before use

Before you use your battery in your Genius Handheld, do the following:

  • Check your battery for damage, including signs of crushing, deformation, and broken casing.
  • Check that the surface of your battery is clean.
  • If the battery terminals are dirty, rub them with a clean, dry cloth.

Using your battery in your Genius Handheld

  • Use only the charger that we supplied to charge your Genius Handheld.
  • Charge your Genius Handheld at least once every three months.
  • Do not leave your Genius Handheld near any heat source or direct sunlight.
