Battery Care

A: No. You can unplug it after the first full recharge. Extra charge time does not generate additional power.
A: No. Li-ion/Li-Polymer batteries does not have memory effect. You can recharge or discharge it anytime.
A: Normal operation will generate mild to moderate heat. To avoid heat accumulation, it is suggested to use it in open areas and stop using it if it becomes exceptionally hot.
A: It is not a suggested practice unless clearly stated in the user manual.
A: On average, a fully charged power pack can last for 6 to 12 months of storage depending on the capacity. However, for best performance, it is suggested to recharge it every 40 to 90 days depending on the capacity.
A: No, not a must. You can try to restore its capacity by fully recharging and discharging it consecutively for 2 to 3 time.
A: Yes. Besides a standard USB 5V output, it can be recharged with any 5V adaptor that provides sufficient power, including a 5V car adaptor.
    Dos
    • 1. Read the instructions on your device before installing batteries.
    • 2. Use the correct size and type of battery specified by the manufacturer of your device. Insert batteries into your device properly, with the (+) and (-) terminals aligned correctly.
    • 3. Remove all used batteries from the device at the same time, and then replace them with new batteries of the same size and type.
    • 4. Store batteries in a dry place at normal room temperature.
    • 5. Remove batteries from the electrical device if the device is not going to be used for a long time.
    • 6. Keep battery contact surfaces and battery compartment contacts clean by rubbing them with a clean pencil eraser or a rough cloth each time you replace batteries.
    • 7. Keep batteries away from children. If swallowed, contact a physician at once.
  • Don'ts
    • 1. Do not dispose batteries in fire, as they could explode.
    • 2. Do not attempt to recharge a battery unless the battery is marked "rechargeable".
    • 3. Do not mix old and new batteries, or mix different types of batteries. This can cause rupture or leakage, resulting in personal injury or property damage.
    • 4. Do not carry loose batteries in a pocket or purse with metal objects like coins, paper clips and hair pins, etc. This will short circuit the battery, generating high heat.

Rechargeable

    Dos
    • 1. Read the instructions on your device before installing batteries.
    • 2. Insert batteries into your device properly, with the (+) and (-) terminals aligned correctly.
    • 3. Always fully charge your batteries before use.
    • 4. When you charge the batteries for the first time, or if the batteries have been stored for a long time, it normally takes about 3 charge and discharge cycles for the batteries to regain full capacity.
    • 5. It is normal for batteries to become hot during charging and they will gradually cool down to room temperature after fully charged.
    • 6. Store the batteries in a cool and dry place.
    • 7. Remove batteries from the electrical device if the device is not going to be used for a long time.
    • 8. Keep battery contact surfaces and battery compartment contacts clean by rubbing them with a clean pencil eraser or a rough cloth each time you replace batteries.
    • 9. If the performance of the batteries decreases substantially, it is time to replace the batteries.
    • 10. Keep batteries away from children. If swallowed, contact a physician at once.
  • Don'ts
    • 1. Do not charge other types of batteries such as alkaline, carbon zinc, lithium or any other kind of batteries not specified as they may leak or burst, causing personal injury and damage.
    • 2. Do not charge batteries of different capacities at the same time except when the charger is equipped with individual charging channels.
    • 3. Do not charge batteries of different residual capacities (e.g. fully discharged batteries and partially discharged batteries) at the same time except when the charger is equipped with individual charging channels.
    • 4. Do not overcharge or overdischarge batteries. It will decrease the batteries' service life.
    • 5. Do not mix batteries of different types (e.g. NiMH, NiCd, alkaline, etc.) and capacities (e.g. 1300mAh and 1600mAh) in the electronic device.
    • 6. Do not short circuit, incinerate and disassemble batteries.
    • 7. Do not dispose batteries in fire. They can rupture or leak.
    • 8. Do not drop or cause unnecessary shocks to the battery.
    • 9. Do not carry loose batteries in a pocket or purse with metal objects like coins, paper clips and hair pins, etc. This will short circuit the battery, generating high heat.

ReCyko+

    Dos
    • 1. New generation rechargeable batteries come charged with a low self-discharge rate, so it is not necessary to charge them before the first time of use.
    • 2. New generation rechargeable batteries come charged with a low self-discharge rate, so they are ready for use anytime.
    • 3. Do read the instruction manuals carefully before inserting the batteries.
    • 4. Do ensure that the batteries are installed correctly with the right polarities (+ and –) matching the device polarities.
    • 5. Batteries do get warm during charging, and will cool down to room temperature gradually after fully charged.
    • 6. Do store the batteries in a clean and dry place.
    • 7. Do remove batteries from devices which will not be used for an extended period of time
    • 8. Do keep battery contact surfaces clean by gently rubbing with a clean pencil eraser, or dry cloth when replacing batteries.
    • 9. Do replace batteries when performance deteriorates noticeably.
    • 10. Do keep batteries away from young children. Contact a physician immediately if swallowed.
  • Don'ts
    • 1. Do not charge batteries of different capacity unless using a charger with individual charging channels.
    • 2. Do not charge batteries of different level of discharge unless using a charger with individual charging channels.
    • 3. Do not overcharge or over-discharge batteries to avoid damage.
    • 4. Do not mix batteries of different types (such as NiMH, NiCd and alkaline batteries) or capacities (such as 1300 mAh and 1600 mAh).
    • 5. Do not burn, deform or short circuit batteries intentionally
    • 6. Do not throw batteries into fire to avoid rupture or leakage
    • 7. Do not drop or cause unnecessary shocks to batteries
    • 8. Do not mix unpackaged batteries with metal objects such as coins or clips to avoid short circuiting
