Tips, Tricks and Techniques - Getting the Most Out of Your Battery!
It’s that time of year again… time to pull out the ultrasound and dust it off. Did you charge your battery in the off season? If not, you may not be getting the most out of your battery. Lithium Ion batteries do best if stored with a partial charge. Like most phones, ReproScan’s 2.0 Monitor has a constant slight draw on the battery, due to the touch screen. This means that even though you stored it charged, it would have died if not charged in the off season.
If you have our newest model of 2.0 Monitor this process is a bit different. On the back of your monitor there is a hard on/off switch. While charging your monitor leave the switch in the ON position, and while in storage turn the switch to the OFF position. This process will prevent the unit from drawing any battery while in storage, leaving you with a fully charged battery for the upcoming preg. checking season!
We recommend that, before use, you fully charge both your monitor and the ultrasound. Typically, charging overnight will be enough time to get a full charge. If you have charged your batteries fully but do not think they are lasting as long as they should, give us a call –it might be time to get a spare battery. The ReproScan team is here to serve you. Please do not hesitate to give us a call with any questions or concerns.
