  • It is not possible to predict the length of time a battery will hold a charge because of the wide range of usage it can be subjected to.  The battery cell may last up to 8 hours in an idle state without a radio.  Adding the radio option will reduce the time the charge will last.
  • If you print standard type labels (not solid black) intermittently throughout the day, you may need to charge the battery once every 3 to 6 hours.   We recommend that have at least one spare battery to use while an exhausted battery is recharging
  • Extreme cold will seriously reduce battery life.
  • The battery will obtain optimum charge when using the specified battery charger supplied by Zebra Technologies.
  • Short battery life may be due to normal aging.
