Proper Battery Placement in the Charger is Essential

Posted by: Kenny Schiff on September 29, 2007

To prolong battery life and ensure that fully charged batteries are readily available to the next shift, users should be reminded of proper placement of the battery in the charger. Battery should be placed with label forward, dot up. Push down just enough to engage the indicator light. If it starts flashing, charging will occur. No green light flashing = it’s not charging. You may need to finesse it a bit.

If the chargers are damaged and batteries are easily pushed beyond the contact seat, Vocera can provide free inserts that keep batteries from being inserted incorrectly. The only possible drawback is that with the insert in place you can no longer charge the battery with the badge.
