Battery - best practices

This page introduces general instructions for lithium-ion battery usage.

Charging your battery

During the charge, the temperature needs to be kept between 0 and 45°C.

Humidity needs to be in the range 65 ± 20 %rh for optimal battery performance.

Warning

A battery should not be charged under the sun.

Storage of your battery

Info

A battery should not remain for a long time in a warehouse.

Environment

Storage duration Acceptable temperature range
<1 months -20 ~ 60°C
<3 months -20 ~ 45°C
<1 year -20 ~ 20°C

Tip

The temperature in a warehouse is susceptible to change. For optimal storage, we recommend relying on temperature-controlled warehousing.

Humidity needs to be in the range 65 ± 20 %rh for optimal battery performance.

Preparation for storage in device

To limit the accidental discharge of the battery, a “sticker” should be placed between the battery’s contacts pins and the device battery contacts pins. Then, you should store the battery at 40% of its capacity.

If you haven't placed a "sticker" of the battery pin, then you should store the battery at 60 - 70% of its capacity because it will slowly discharge itself.

Preparation for storage apart from the device

You should store the battery at 40% of its capacity.

Transportation of your battery

All the device with Lithium-Ion batteries must follow the IATA rules for transportation by plane:

Relation between your battery and the date & time

The Famoco devices have an embedded battery that keeps date and time while the main battery is not present. This battery has a very limited capacity and will quickly discharge if the main device battery is not in place. When both the embedded battery and the main battery are empty, the device will lose the date & time. Having this internal battery not charged for several months may result in an inability to hold a charge when the main device battery is not present.

If date & time and time have been lost, just connect the device to the public internet, it will synchronize its internal clock and recover the proper date & time.
