To get the most out of your Ozonics batteries, you need to properly store them during the off season. Here's what you need to know:
- Don't leave the batteries in your unit or charger for extended periods of time. This will drain the battery and leave it completely empty, resulting in diminished run time.
- Lithium ion batteries should be stored at 50% full in a dry location at room temperature
- To obtain a 50 percent charge on your HR-200 battery, charge the battery to completion in the HR-200 charger until the green LED indicator is illuminated. At this point, remove the battery from the charger and place it into the HR-200 unit. Run the HR-200 on Boost mode for 2.5 hours with a Standard battery, or for 5 hours for an XL battery, in a well ventilated area, turn the unit off, remove the battery and store it in a cool dry location (60 to 85 F is preferred) for the duration of your off season.
- To obtain a 50 percent charge on your HR-300 Smart Battery, place the battery in the HR-300 charger and wait for the LED to turn solid red. Once the LED turns solid red press and hold the button on the front of the that says, “Press for Storage,” until the red LED starts to blink at a once-per-second rate. Release the button. In this mode, the charger will charge the Smart Battery to the 50 percent state and indicate the battery is ready by alternately blinking between red and green. Remove the battery from the charger and store in a cool dry place (60 to 85 F is preferred).
