battery charging/ cleaning
IMPORTANT OPERATION AND BATTERY INSTRUCTIONS:
Your 18605 portable suction machine is capable to run on AC or DC power. To ensure full function of this unit, the battery must be completely charged before the first use. Do not turn on the
unit before the battery is completely charged. It takes approximately 1.5 hours to fully charge
the unit. Charge the unit when battery levels are low to ensure proper operation.
WARNING
If the unit does not receive an external power source or the battery does not get recharged immediately, the low battery indicator light will remain on and the performance of the unit will drop
off rapidly. Switch to another power source immediately to avoid an interrupted suction
procedure.
Adjust the vacuum level from 0 to 600 mm Hg by turning the vacuum regulator knob located on
the side of the unit (clockwise to increase vacuum and counter-clockwise to decrease vacuum).
The desired level of vacuum can be set by using the gauge located on the front of the unit. To
accurately read the gauge, block the patient end of the hose or cap off the collection bottle and
allow the gauge to reach a stable vacuum reading.
NOTE
Gauge is for reference only. If the unit sustains a severe drop, accuracy of the gauge must be
checked.
Suction at the patient is automatically obstructed when liquid level reaches the float shut-off
located on the underside of the collection bottle lid.
NOTE
Always transport unit with vacuum regulator knob rotated fully clockwise in case unit is dropped.
CAUTION
When automatic float shut-off is activated, contents of the collection bottle should be emptied.
Further suctioning could cause damage to the vacuum pump.
CAUTION
Should fluid be aspirated back into the unit, equipment provider servicing is necessary as possible vacuum pump damage may result.

BATTERY CHARGING
On 18605 series, the units are equipped with a factory-installed rechargeable battery. The unit
will have a light for low battery and charge indication.
Once you’ve determined that your unit is equipped with an internal rechargeable battery, connect the unit to the proper AC or DC power source using the AC adapter or DC power cord. The
yellow charge indicator will be illuminated while the battery is charging. At the same time, the
red light on the AC adapter will be also illuminated. Verify that this illuminates when charging
begins. As the battery is fully charged, the red light on the AC adapter will turn to green.
NOTE
A discharged battery will require a few hours (depending on depth of discharge) of charging to
reach a full capacity.
NOTE
Do not connect the AC adapter to an outlet controlled by a switch to ensure power is supplied to
unit at all times.
NOTE
Do not connect the DC power cord to an outlet that is not constantly energized.
NOTE
A fully charged battery, on the 18605 series will provide approximately 60 minutes of continuous
operation at a zero vacuum level (free flow).
NOTE
If unit is not in use for extended periods, battery should be recharged every 6 months minimum.
CAUTION
Discharging the battery completely will shorten the life of the battery. Do not operate the unit
more than a few minutes if the low battery indicator light is lit. Recharge as soon as possible.
NOTE
When charging the battery, the battery charging indicator light will remain lit. If your unit does
not hold a charge, please be sure the model you are using has a battery installed prior to returning it to your authorized Drive Medical provider or to Drive Medical. Verify that the charge light
turns on when the external power is applied with the switch in the OFF position.
NOTE
Units equipped with an internal rechargeable battery contain a lithium ion battery which must be
recycled.
