SimplyGo Mini Ion Battery, You can use a rechargeable battery to power the SimplyGo Mini without connection to an external power source.When fully charged, the standard battery will provide up to 4.5 hours of operation and the extended battery will provide up to 9 hours of operation when on setting 2.
Note:Battery duration times will degrade with battery age, environmental operating conditions, and use over time.To maximize battery life, please see theCaring for Your Batterysection of this manual.If the battery is near the end of its useful life, you may experience battery durations of approximately two-thirds that of a new device.
Charging the Battery
Important: The first time you charge the battery, be sure to charge it fully. Do not use the DC power cord to do so; instead use AC power.
Note: The battery will begin charging whenever you connect the device to an AC outlet, regardless of whether or not it is in use.
To charge the battery using the AC Power Cord provided with your system, follow these steps.
Connect the AC Power Supply’s output cable to the SimplyGo Mini power input connector
Connect the AC Power Cord’s connector into the AC power supply
Connect the AC Power Cord’s plug into an AC outlet installed to meet national or regional electrical code
Note: The AC Power Supply is equipped with a green light, which illuminates as soon as you connect the device to an energized AC power source.
When charging is complete (this takes four hours or less for the standard battery), disconnect the AC Power Supply and store it with the AC Power Cord for future use.
Caring for your Battery
Handle your battery with care.
Do not allow the battery’s terminals to touch together as this will cause it to fail.
Do not immerse the battery in water.
Do not disassemble or deform the battery.
Do not expose to, or dispose of, the battery in fire.
Avoid exposing the battery to excessive physical shock or vibration (dropping, etc.)
Keep all batteries out of the reach of children.
Do not use any battery that has been damaged in any way.
Always charge the battery in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, using specified chargers only.
Do not use modified battery chargers.
An optional, external charger can be purchased to charge the batteries. Contact your equipment provider for more information.
Lithium ion batteries can be stored from -4° F (-20° C) to 140° F (+60° C) at up to 80% relative humidity. However, they are best stored below 70° F (21° C) in a cool, dry, well-ventilated facility free from corrosive gas or vapor.
Storage at temperatures above 113° F (45° C), such as in a hot car, may degrade battery performance and reduce battery life. Storage at low temperatures may affect initial battery performance.
The optimal temperature range for charging the batteries is 0° F to 113° F (0° C to 45° C) at up to 80% relative humidity. The device will not charge the battery if the battery cells exceed 113° F (45° C). Battery charging will be inhibited until the battery temperature returns to 111° F (44° C) or below.
