Quick Tips on Battery UseUpdated 6 months ago

Here are some tips on using the battery:

  • Always disconnect the battery from the drive when not in use - even for short interruptions in play.
  • Always fully charge the battery before EVERY use (including first time out of the box!)
  • Always charge the battery INSIDE the charging bag
  • Always remove the battery from the charger as soon as it is fully charged
  • Always stop to recharge the battery before the voltage drops below the minimum voltage.
    • For Home Plus minimum voltage is 12.8 v 
    • For Home Original minimum voltage is 9.6v (about five 90 second play sessions or 10 min.)
  • Always attend the charging process - if necessary, stop charging and start again when you can be present. Just don't USE the battery until it is fully charged.

  • Replace your battery when the maximum capacity reaches 80% 
    • For Home Plus 80% is 13.44v
    • For Home Original 80% is 10.08v
  • NEVER attempt to charge or use a battery that is swollen or damaged 
    • Keep the swollen /  damaged battery away from anything flammable
    • To recycle responsibly - google "battery recycle center near me" 
    • Take the swollen / damaged battery to the recycle place ASAP

CAUTION: The battery should always be allowed to come to room-temperature before charging. Charging a hot or cold battery might delay charging or damage the battery. For best results, charge the battery at temperatures between 50º and 80ºF (10º-30ºC).
