The Home Plus battery ship with a charge of approximately 15.5v (v=volts)

The number showing in the charger display is showing the voltage of the battery. This number will increase as the battery is charged. 

The Plus battery is a 14.8v  This is the nominal charge. 

  • The maximum capacity is 16.8v (this number slowly declines over time - this is normal)
  • The minimum it should be drained is 12.8v
  • Store the battery between 14.8v - 15.5v 
  • Replace your battery once the maximum capacity reaches 80% (13.44v) 
It is not recommended to drain the battery below 12.8 volts this may permanently damage your battery.
