My Ultra Pack Battery won’t charge, what should I do?
Be sure to turn the Master Power Switch to the ON (|) position. This switch effectively disconnects the battery from everything else. If you charge with the switch off, the Battery Status Indicator will light up, but the battery won't get charged.
Does my Vexilar Battery have a memory?
No. It is best to get in the habit of charging the battery after every use. The "fuller" you keep the battery, the longer it will last you. That's both in hours and years.
How long should I charge my battery?
If it is a Vexilar charger, charge until the indicator light tells you the battery is full. If not, you will need to find a way to measure the battery voltage. Generally, the charge should reach at least 14.5 volts, but not be allowed to go beyond 15 volts (measured while charging). A voltage meter can tell you this.
