Maintenance Guidelines for 24 Volt Lithium Batteries



A lithium-ion battery (also known as a Li-ion battery) is a battery with a high energy density. On top of this, they provide the well-known advantages in weight and volume, as well as a long life in cycling.


Using Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries safely and extending their battery life requires routine maintenance and care. Read and follow these guidelines to ensure safe use of 24v lithium battery. Do not leave batteries unused for extended periods of time, either in the product or in storage. Once a battery has been unused for 6 months, you should charge it or dispose of it as appropriate based on its charge status.


A lithium-ion battery typically lasts two to three years or 300 to 500 charge cycles, depending on when it is fully charged, fully discharged, and fully recharged. For batteries that do not run through a complete charge cycle, a two to three-year life expectancy is recommended. Rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries have a limited life and lose their capacity with time. This loss of capacity (aging) cannot be reversed. The charge status of lithium-ion batteries should be regularly checked as they continue to discharge slowly when not in use or when stored. The battery's capacity diminishes when the battery loses capacity. The battery's run-time decreases as it loses capacity.


A fully-charged battery will power your product for a specified amount of time. You can use this new battery's run time as a basis for comparing battery run times with older batteries. The battery's run time varies based on the configuration of the product and the applications that you run. Check the battery's charge status regularly.


Whenever you notice one or more of the following conditions, consider replacing the battery with a new one.


● The battery run time drops below 80% of the original run time.


● The battery charge time increases significantly.


If a battery is stored or otherwise unused for an extended period, follow the instructions in this document for storage. If you do not follow the instructions, and the battery has no charge remaining when you check it, consider it to be damaged. Do not attempt to recharge it or to use it. Replace it with a new battery.


Test one battery and one battery slot at a time when troubleshooting battery issues for dual battery configurations. If the battery in the opposite slot is defective, it will not charge, so you will have two uncharged batteries. Before storing, charge the battery to about 50% capacity. Charge it to about 50% capacity once every six months. Store the battery separately from the product and charge it again once every six months.


The battery should be stored between 5 and 20 degrees Celsius (41 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit). NOTE. The battery self-discharges during storage. Higher temperatures (above 20 degrees Celsius) will reduce battery storage life. Handling Precautions Avoid disassembly, crushing, or puncturing the battery.


● Do not shorten battery external contacts.


● Do not dispose of a battery in fire or water.


● Do not expose a battery to temperatures above 60 °C (140 °F).


● Keep the battery away from children. Avoid exposing the battery to excessive shock or vibration.


● Do not use a damaged battery.


● If a battery pack has leaking fluids, do not touch any fluids. Dispose of a leaking battery pack (see Disposal and Recycling in this document).


● In case of eye contact with fluid, do not rub the eyes. Immediately flush eyes thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower lids, until no evidence of fluid remains. Seek medical attention.


● Transportation Always check all applicable local, national, and international regulations before transporting a Lithium-Ion battery.


● Transporting end-of-life, damaged, or recalled battery may, in certain cases, be specifically




Lithium-Ion batteries are subject to disposal and recycling regulations that vary by country and region. For U.S.A. and Canada, please contact Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation or your local battery recycling organization before disposing of any battery.


Electronic waste cannot be disposed of in standard waste containers in many countries.


Ensure that only discharged batteries are placed in a battery collection container. To prevent short circuits, cover the battery connection points with electrical tape or another approved covering. know more
