Battery Usage Guidelines Multiplexx - Mobile Computing Solutions And Accessories


To help you optimize your GTS® Batteries and improve your productivity levels we’ve put together the following Battery Usage Guidelines.

1. Track the purchase dates and ages of your batteries.

We recommend marking your GTS® Batteries with colour coded stickers based on purchase dates. This will help you to determine how long a battery has been in service when the time comes to replace the batteries. Following this procedure helps to ensure your batteries are always replaced before productivity is lost.

2. Assign batteries to a specific terminal.

To avoid confusion, we recommend the following procedure which will help you tell which batteries are associated to which terminal and more specifically, which charging slot (if applicable).

  • Label each device with its own unique number
  • Label each battery charger and charging slot (if applicable) with the same number that corresponds with the associated device.
  • When you receive your GTS® Batteries and colour code them, make sure they are labelled with the same unique number as its corresponding device and charger.

3.  Replace your batteries at the optimal time.

  • We recommend replacing the battery every 18 months for users with average usage patterns (ie.8 hour shift in a retail environment)
  • We recommend replacing the battery every 12 months for users with moderate to high usage patterns (ie.24x7 warehouse environment)

4.  Always have 1-2 charged spare batteries for each of your devices.
This will ensure you avoid costly downtime. Make sure your spare batteries are labelled as outlined in Battery Usage Guidelines 1 and 2.

5.  Keep your battery contact surfaces clean.
Dirty contact points are a major source of charging problems. To maintain optimal battery performance gently clean the contacts with a soft cloth on a regular basis.

6.  Exclusively using longer lasting GTS® Batteries will lower the Total Cost of Ownership of your devices because you will need to purchase less batteries over time. Using higher capacity batteries necessitates less charges thus allowing a longer useful battery life.

Charging your batteries for the first time.

  • How long should it take to fully charge my battery?
    Charge time varies from battery to battery depending upon capacity and charger. We recommend charging your batteries overnight before initial use.

TroubleShooting Battery Issues

  • How can I avoid memory effect?
    Ni-Cd and Ni-MH batteries have a memory effect. To avoid this make sure to fully discharge and fully charge your battery. Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer batteries do not have a memory effect.
  • How should I store my batteries?
    For optimum performance batteries should be stored in a dry location with low humidity and no corrosive gases. The recommended storage temperature for most batteries is 150C (590F).

Battery Disposal

When your batteries are no longer able to provide the appropriate charge, it is critical that you dispose of them properly.

ADD Batteries, in conjunction with GTS® Batteries, is committed to maintaining the sustainability of the environment.

GTS® Batteries designed a program to ensure that batteries are disposed of in accordance with all Federal, State, and Local guidelines.
