Orbis_bty.png

Charging

  1. Plug the power supply into a wall socket.
  2. Plug the other end of the cable into the charging cradle.
  3. Slide the charger onto the battery.
  4. Charge the battery for two hours, or until the LED on the charger turns green.
  5. Disconnect the charger from the battery and from the AC mains/outlet.

Note: Do not leave the charger connected to the battery for long periods after the battery is charged.

Battery Safety

  • DO NOT attempt to dismantle the battery.
  • DO NOT short-circuit the battery.
  • DO NOT dispose of in normal household waste.
  • The battery is splash proof but not waterproof. Do not immerse in water.
  • Use only the charger and batteries supplied by FARO®. The battery should be charged fully before use.
  • If storing the battery, store it in a charged state. Recharge after every 6 months.
  • Excess heat will degrade the battery rapidly. Always store the battery in a cool, dry place. DO NOT leave for long periods in the sun or in a hot vehicle.

Transport

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 carrier 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.

Ensure that the total energy content of all batteries that any individual person carries is less than 200 Wh, and that no single battery has more than 100 Wh energy content. Review currently applicable national and international regulations for the transport of Li-On batteries, and also verify with your airline or freight company in advance.

The battery has been tested and passed section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria (UN Transportation Testing) as required by the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (2016), Section 2.3.5.9. The battery is below the 100 Wh limit for transportation on passenger planes. For the purposes of air transportation, the battery is classed as “Packed with equipment” (ICAO/IATA Packing Instruction 966, Section II) – Cells or batteries contained in a package with associated electronic equipment. Special rules may apply to the transportation of spare batteries. It is recommended that you check with your local air transportation safety authority and/or the proposed air carrier for specific requirements on lithium battery transportation.

Air Transport Certificate fo PAG Li-Ion Batteries

Never ship a damaged battery by air transportation.
