Installation advice for your motorcycle battery
Regularly check the power left in your batteries with a battery tester. If you have equipment which is no longer working a battery tester will enable you to establish if the problem is with the equipment or if it is just the batteries that need replacing.
How to preserve the life of your laptop battery
It is better to use your laptop on the mains electricity supply and remove the battery as often as possible. Only run your laptop on the battery power when absolutely necessary. When storing the laptop for an extended period of time, recharge the battery roughly every 3 months.
Rechargeable / Non-Rechargeable
The NX-Ready™ rechargeable battery range
These batteries benefit from new technology which almost completely eliminates the problem of self-discharge – NX-Ready™ batteries do not run flat following long periods in which they are not used. Your device will perform just as well whether you use it now or do not use it for a long time. On the contrary, standard NiMH batteries lose almost all their charge if not used for just 3 months. Cost effective, efficient and environmentally friendly – choose the NX-Ready™ range.
These batteries power all types of electronic equipment: laptops, mobile phones, GPS devices, digital cameras, camcorders, PDAs, multimedia and CD/DVD readers, games consoles, satellite phones etc. They give an immediate lease of life to your portable device if its battery is flat, be it on a train, plane or even in the park. Powerful yet compact they are a traveller’s friend. Our universal external batteries use lithium which offers a greater battery life allowing the batteries to stay charged for longer. Charge your external battery and take it everywhere you go to make the most of your multimedia devices.
Batteries for digital cameras and camcorders
You do not need to wait for lithium batteries to be completely flat before charging them. However, it is important to only recharge NiMH and NiCD batteries when they are fully flat in order to keep them working at full capacity. For a longer battery life we advise you to fully charge your battery before any long period in which it will not be used. For digital cameras that run on HR3 or HR6 batteries we recommend NX-Ready™ - the new generation of batteries. NX-Ready batteries do not lose their charge when unused for a long time and retain 80% of their charge after being left idle for one year.
Why does the lead battery in my device not work?
Lead batteries have the disadvantage of running flat over time. No matter how old they are, once they have lost a certain amount of their charge they do not work. To avoid experiencing the same problem again take the battery out when you’re not using the device and use the device at least once every 6 months. This way, the battery’s charge should be preserved.
How to maintain a lithium ion battery?
Here is a guide:
• Do not deep discharge
• Do not store batteries for long periods without use
• Store the battery at room temperature (many manufacturers store batteries at 15 ° C)
• Store the battery at around 40% capacity
• Do not charge or discharge it fully
• Do not stock spare batteries
Check the date of manufacture when purchasing the battery as it begins to wear as soon as it is manufactured.
