Transcript Summary

One can test the charge level of an AutoVac battery by pressing the test button located on the battery’s charge indicator. Before beginning, one can install the power pack onto the system by aligning the slots on the rear of the power pack with the rail located on the system’s back. Then, slide the power pack into place. Now, turn the battery key clockwise to lock the battery in place. This system uses a lithium-ion power pack that is chargeable whenever. Kaivac recommends charging whenever the system is not in use to keep the battery set to use later. There are two different ways to charge the battery: on the wall-mounted charger or the charging port located on the battery mount. Before using the wall charger, the battery needs to be removed from the system first. Next, one needs to push in on the battery key, turning it counter-clockwise to the unlock position to remove the battery. Using the folding handle on the power pack, lift it to help it slide out and off the system. Moving to charge, align the slots to the rail of the wall rail and slide it into place. Using the charging port, the first thing to do is unplug the vacuum motor from the battery mount by pressing in on the lock tab and then pulling it out. On the charger plug, locate the arrow to align with the lock tab on the charger port, then plug in the charger plug, making sure to plug it into an electrical outlet. When the battery is charging, a red light indicates it is charging. While a green light means fully charged. The battery would take about three hours to charge from a complete discharge. If the system is not in use, the battery can be on the charger. The battery should be in a dry area with temperatures ranging between 40 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If the lithium-ion battery is in an area with higher temperatures than 80, the battery life decreases. These are some great ways to manage and store your power pack.
