Note - Position of the battery and controller cradle may vary according to the chair configuration. The number of operations per charge will vary according to the loading of the stretcher. Do not continually run the battery to low charge as this will gradually reduce the battery life. Regular charging of the battery is recommended. Low Battery Warning: On hearing an audible tone from the unit during use, plug the chair into mains power (if available) or remove the battery for charging immediately. Failure to comply with this will result in shortening of battery life.
To remove the battery, squeeze the lever under the end of the battery to release the lock and then pull away from the control box interface connection, allowing the battery to continue resting on its slide support. Carefully lift the battery out. To install the battery, lift the battery into position and rest on its slide support. Push the battery firmly into the control box interface until you hear the lock click.
