The following safety measures must be followed when working with the Power Block battery:
- Charge the Power Block only in the Mobile PC or in a charger recommended by FARO to charge the Power Block.
- Do not charge or discharge damaged batteries.
- Do not charge the Power Block in the mobile PC when it is stored in the transport case.
- Do not use wet or dirty batteries in the FARO Laser Scanner or with the charger.
- Charge within limits of 0 °C (32 °F) and 45 °C (113 °F) temperature. Recommended charging temperatures: 10 °C (50 °F) to 30 °C (86 °F).
- Discharge within limits of -20 °C (-4 °F) and 60 °C (140 °F) temperature. Recommended operating temperatures: 5 °C (41 °F) to 40 °C (104 °F).
- Insert or remove batteries in dry and dust-free environments only.
- When the mobile PC is not in use for a longer period of time, remove the Power Block.
- Store the Power Block only when it is charged (at least 60% charge state). It is recommended to charge the Power Block once a year when it is stored long term.
- Storage temperatures: -20 °C (-4 °F) to 45 °C (113 °F), storage humidity range: 0% to 80%. Store in a well-ventilated area. Do not store with metal objects. A short circuit can cause a fire.
- Do not bring metal objects into contact with the batteries' terminals. The terminals may short circuit and generate heat in this condition.
- Do not immerse batteries into water or fire (danger of explosion).
- Dispose of batteries in accordance with environmental regulations. Contact your local waste disposal management authority for guidelines concerning lithium ion batteries.
- The FARO batteries are lithium-ion batteries and are thus classified as dangerous goods. When transporting or shipping the FARO batteries, ensure that you observe all applicable local and international rules and regulations. For further information, contact your local forwarder before transportation or shipping.
- For lithium-ion batteries with less than 100 Wh energy content, an exemption is provided that allows you to carry such a battery without further paperwork. The maximum battery energy a single person can carry is 200 Wh.
