Make sure to not use your charger as a stand for your radio. Leaving the radio in the charger while you are using it all day long can shorten the life of your battery.
When you are ready to charge your radio, turn it off and then place it in the charger until the light indicates it is fully charged or whenever you are ready to start using your radio again. Your charger will not overcharge your batteries. Once the battery is full charged it will automatically switch to a trickle charge.
If you need to be able to use your radio around the clock we recommend having a second battery for each radio. You can charge the battery by itself in the charger. This way you will always have a fully charged battery ready to go day or night.
If you are noticing that your battery isn't charging properly first check that there is no dirt or corrosion on the contacts.
We also sell multi-unit chargers for most radios. This makes it very convenient to inventory your radios since the radios can be checked in and charged at one spot at the end of a shift. It also ensures that the radios will be properly charged since someone will be checking them in and charging them. This avoids the issue of the radio user accidentally forgetting to charge their radio at the end of a shift.
