Maintaining the Batteries

Warning

The batteries contains high voltage, which could burn or electrocute you.

  • Do not attempt to open the batteries.

  • Use extreme care when handling a battery with a cracked case.

  • Use only the charger designed for the batteries.

The lithium-ion batteries hold a sufficient charge to perform intended work during its life span. As time goes by, the total amount of work that the batteries are able to complete on a single charge gradually diminishes.

Note: Your results may vary depending on the distance you need to transport the machine, the undulations that you travel across, and other factors as discussed in this section.

To achieve maximum life and use from your batteries, follow these guidelines:

  • Do not open the battery. There are no user serviceable parts inside. If you open the pack, you will void your warranty . The batteries are protected by tamper-alerting devices.

  • Store/park the machine in a clean, dry garage or storage area, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Do not store it in a location where the temperature drops below -30°C (-22°F) or rises above 60°C (140°F). Temperatures outside of this range will damage your batteries. High temperatures during storage, especially at a high state of charge, reduces the life of the batteries.

  • When storing the machine for more than 10 days, ensure that the machine is in a cool location, out of sunlight, and at least 50% charged.

  • If you are operating the machine in hot conditions or in sunlight, the battery may overheat. If this happens, a high-temperature alert will appear on the InfoCenter. In this condition, the machine slows down.

    Immediately drive the machine to a cool location out of the sun, turn off the machine, and allow the batteries to cool fully before resuming operation.

  • If your machine is equipped with the Light Kit, shut off the lights when they are not in use.

Transporting the Batteries

The US Department of Transportation and international transportation authorities require that lithium ion batteries be transported using special packaging and only be transported by carriers certified to haul them. In the US, you are allowed to transport a battery when it is installed on the machine as battery powered equipment, with some regulatory requirements. Contact the US Department of Transportation or the appropriate government body in your country for detailed regulations on transportation of your batteries or the machine with the batteries equipped.

Contact your Authorized Service Dealer for ways to ship or dispose of the batteries.
