Caring for the battery
Store the battery at room temperature in a dry
place. Avoid moisture, or extreme hot or cold.
Store the battery in the charged condition. Avoid
‘deep discharge.’ Battery life will decrease if the
battery is stored in a fully discharged condition.
Over time, the run time of the battery will
diminish. Expect about 500 full charges,
depending on care. After a full life, the battery
will continue to charge but with a lower run time.
When the run time is unsatisfactory, do not open
the case of the light or incinerate; please recycle.
A bicycle without correct lights and
reflectors might be difficult for other people
to see, and you might not be able to see.
If you can not see, or other people can not
see you, you could have an accident. Make
sure your lights operate correctly and that
batteries are charged.
