Battery exchange

The BS11 station contains a rechargeable battery. The battery has a lifetime of several years. Even without use, the battery ages over time and its capacity decreases. The number of charging cycles and the storage of the batteries also have an influence on the life of the batteries. Frequent charging and temperatures that are too cold or too hot can have a shortening effect on the lifetime.

It is recommended to replace rechargeable batteries of a BS11 station after seven years.

A simple but non-professional test is to test the runtime of the battery when the station is switched on. To do this, fully charge the station and set the operating time using Config+ to its maximum (95 h, 59 min). Switch on the station and check that it remains switched on within the runtime.

If the LEDs of the station flash red-green during charging, this indicates an error in the recognition of the battery. In this case, you should completely discharge the battery. To do this, switch on the station and wait until it switches off due to low charge. If the station switches off due to its expired operating time, switch it on again. Then fully charge the station again. If the problem persists, the battery should be replaced.
