Battery Info

Observe the following guidelines when charging a battery

- Avoid high temperatures during charging, particularly when
using vehicular chargers, where it is easy to exceed
temperature limits due to the wide range of outdoor
environments. Harris chargers prevent charging when
temperatures exceed cell manufacturer’s
recommendations. This is indicated by a flashing LED (the
actual LED that flashes depends on the charger model
being used. Refer to the charger’s user manual for
– Battery packs normally become warm during charging.
Harris chargers continually monitor battery temperature and
discontinue charging if temperature limits are exceeded.
– Only charge NiCd, NiMH, or Li-Ion battery packs using a
rapid charger designed for this purpose. Harris desk and
multi-chargers differentiate between NiCd, NiMH, or Li-Ion
battery packs and automatically adjust charging
– Do not leave batteries in the charger indefinitely. For
best results leave the battery in the charger for 2 to 6 hours
after the ready light (green LED) comes on. Then, place the
battery pack in service and fully discharge it (as indicated
by the radio “Low Batt” warning) before recharging.
– If any faults are encountered while charging the battery
pack, consult the manual for the charger to determine the
cause and possible corrective action.
