Tip 1: Only use batteries designed for use with the equipment.
Tip 2: Charge the batteries until they are fully charged (Don’t worry, you can’t overcharge them).
Tip 3: Avoid completely draining your battery before recharging.
Tip 4: If the low battery indicator beeps, be sure to recharge the battery as soon as possible.
Tip 5: Where possible use 2 battery packs per hoist, as this spreads the load/usage over 2 battery packs, hence last longer. The other benefit of a second battery is that your hoist is never in a situation where you cannot use it if waiting for the one battery to charge.
Tip 6: Where you only have one battery, place the battery in the charger whenever the lift is not in use.
Tip 7: Even if the hoist is not in use for long periods of time, the battery should be charged once a week.
