Your Spot Lifter should be in charge mode whenever you
are not using it. When charging, the Spot Lifter and charger
may become warm to the touch. This is normal, and no
cause for concern.

Make certain the Spot Lifter is turned OFF. Switch must be
in “OFF” position to charge.
4.
When completely charged, your Spot Lifter will operate for
up to 5 minutes. When completely discharged, it will take
approximately 12 hours to fully recharge.
5.
If necessary, your Spot Lifter can be charged by connecting
the round end of the Power Cord into the special Power
Port at the back of the unit.
6.
Decreased operating time may indicate that the battery has
built up a charging resistance. To recharge, first completely
exhaust the battery, recharge it, then exhaust it once again
before recharging a second time. This procedure may be
required more than once. If your battery still fails to
recharge, or hold a charge through normal duration
(5 minutes), call:
