    Best Practices

    All rechargeable batteries have a finite lifespan. Factors that affect lifespan include the number of discharge/charge cycles and the average loading of the battery. The following best practices can help maximize the lifespan of your battery:

    • Charge rate
      • Minimum: 1.5A
      • Maximum: 3.0A
      • Recommended: 1.8A or 2.0A
    • Do not overcharge
      • Disconnect the battery from the charger once it indicates a full charge.
      • Typical charge time does not exceed 2 hours.
      • Do not charge a battery that hasn't been discharged significantly.
        • For example, running the robot under minimal load for a few minutes will not significantly discharge the battery.
    • Minimum no-load voltage: 9.0V
      • Discharging the battery past 9.0V can reduce the lifespan of the battery and can permanently damage the cells.
      • Periodic dips below 9.0V when under load is expected and OK.
        • For example, don't forget to unplug your battery after you are finished running the robot and don't run your robot until it completely stops responding!
    • Temperature
      • Let the battery cool before and after charging.
      • The battery may feel warm after heavy loading or after charging. This is normal.
