The run time of your vacuum depends on the power setting you choose, the higher the suction power the quicker the battery will drain.
To optimise your battery we suggest changing the power to suit the flooring type. The highest setting on your vacuum consumes a lot of power, so it is recommended that you use this on tough floors. Adjusting the settings as you go will extend the battery life of your vacuum.
Floors Made From Tiles, Wood Or Other Hard Flooring Material
Use the lowest setting on your vacuum for hard surfaces, unless there is a larger debris patch, then adjust as necessary.
A slow and even stroke with the vacuum should be used for the best results.
Plush Carpets Or Surfaces With Pet Hair
On carpets, pet hair patches or other difficult areas, use the higher settings on the vacuum. Maintain a slow and even stroke of the vacuum.
It is recommended for larger areas that a lower power setting is used. Depending on the size of the cleaning area you may be able to maximise your cleaning by vacuuming more frequently for shorter periods of time.
It is quite normal for battery capacity to deteriorate over some time depending on the number of charge cycles this will result in a shorter operation time.
Tips For Maintaining Battery Health
- Store the vacuum in a cool place. Warm temperatures can be harmful so avoid prolonged sunlight, particularly when it’s on charge.
- Lithium-ion batteries are actually more likely to be damaged if they are regularly fully drained. We suggest trying not to let your battery fall below 20% of charge regularly. Little and often is the most effective way to keep your lithium-ion battery healthy, rather than regular deep drains.
- Fully drain the battery of the unit once per month. If you have a spare battery, swap the battery each month alternating between the two.
- You can preserve the life of your battery by letting your machine cool down after use before connecting it to the charger to recharge.
