  • The Lithium-Ion Battery should be fully charged for the first use
  • Once turned on, keep the battery in its designated pocket for protection and warmth
  • In below freezing temperatures, turn on your battery before going outside
    • The battery stops discharging power at -20F and since the battery will already be running, thus it will naturally keep warm
  • Charge the battery at least once every three months
  • Keep the battery fully charged when not in use
  • Store batteries at room temperature, in a cool, dry place

All batteries eventually wear out over time which is why it is important to get the most out of each one. Lithium-Ion batteries typically decrease capacity by around 10% each year while having a good service life of 2-3 years.
