Maximizing the Lifespan of Your Lithium-Ion Battery: Care and Maintenance Tips

Ensure Your Battery's Longevity with Proper Handling and Charging

As the popularity of our Kombi Orange & Ranger Line Marking machines continues to soar, ensuring that the heart of this equipment, the lightweight Lithium-ion battery, remains healthy and efficient is crucial. These batteries provide an entire day's worth of marking power without adding significant weight to the machine.

To make sure your Kombi Lithium-ion battery enjoys an extended and trouble-free lifecycle, it's essential to adhere to proper care and maintenance instructions.

1. Proper Storage Is Key

One of the primary factors in preserving the health of your Lithium-ion battery is proper storage. When your Kombi Line Marking machine is not in use, ensure the battery is fully charged, maintaining it at a minimum of 70-80% capacity. Lithium-ion batteries left unattended or discharged for extended periods may fail to hold a charge or even become irreparably damaged.

2. Handle with Care

To safeguard your battery and maintain its performance, follow these essential guidelines:

  • Avoid Short Circuits: Never short-circuit the battery terminals, as this can lead to dangerous and irreversible damage.
  • Check for Damage: Don't use the battery if it's visibly damaged or leaking. Any sign of damage could compromise safety and performance.
  • Avoid Extreme Temperatures: Steer clear of exposing the battery to high temperatures exceeding 60°C or fire. Extreme heat can lead to overheating and potential thermal runaway, posing a significant risk.
  • Regular Use: If your Kombi Line Marking machine isn't in frequent use, make it a habit to charge the battery for 5-10 minutes and then discharge it with a load for 5-10 minutes at least once a month. This keeps the battery active and prevents capacity degradation.

3. Choose the Right Charger

When it comes to charging your Lithium-ion battery, always use the 'Fleet Lithium Ion Battery Charger' provided with the machine. Using any other charger may significantly reduce battery life and even pose a fire hazard. Remember that the charger fits in only one way.

By following these care and maintenance instructions diligently, you can ensure that your Kombi Line Marking machine's Lithium-ion battery remains reliable and long-lasting, empowering you to tackle line marking projects efficiently and effectively. Proper battery care is not just about prolonging its life but also about ensuring safety while using this powerful equipment.
