Care and Tips:
These battery tips will help assure you the
highest performance and longest cycle life
from your XXXXXXX rechargeable battery.
1. Charge your new battery overnight (14-16 Hours) before using it. This is referred to as :initializing: and will enable you to obtain maximum battery capacity.
2. New batteries can be stored up to two years without significant cycle loss.
3. Store new/unused batteries, at room temperature, in cool dry area.
4. Batteries which have been in storage should be charged overnight.
5. When using a XXXXXXX rapid charger, leave battery in charger for an additional 1-2 hours after the green light appears.
6. Do not leave your radio & battery in the charger when not charging. Continuous charging will shorten battery life. (Don’t use your charger as a radio stand.)
7. Only charge batteries when they need it. If it isn’t fully discharged, don’t recharge it. (We recommend your purchase a second battery for multiple/longer duty cycle applications.)
8. Do not return fully charged batteries to the charger for an “extra boost”. This action will significantly reduce cycle life.
9. Stabilize battery to room temperature (72°F) before charging. Charging below 40°F & above 104°F will decrease cycle life.
10. For optimum battery life and operation use XXXXXXX brand, or a XXXXXXX recommended replacement charger.
These simple instructions protect your rechargeable batteries from extreme temperatures and enhance their performance and life.
Specify XXXXXXX brand rechargeable batteries. They were designed & precisely manufactured by XXXXXXX engineers to ensure optimum portable radio performance. It just makes good sense.

Battery Charging Tips:
1. Place Battery in Charger.
2. Ready light - remove battery and use.

ACT - THE CHARGING STANDARD What Customers Are Saying!: What Customers Are Saying! “After evaluating the ACT charger / Conditioner we have replaced two-thirds of our standard Kenwood chargers with ACTivators. The ACTivator has become a major asset in restoring confidence in our radio communications and we can now provide a more efficient and reliable service to our officers and to the general public. A major advantage to me is that when we switch to TETRA I can use the same charger and just change adapters.

ACT - THE CHARGING STANDARD What Customers Are Saying!: What Customers Are Saying! “We carried out a detailed evaluation of the ACTivator, we found that it exceeded the companies claims in recovering older batteries. We purchased a small number of units for our own use. The ACT charger proved very useful in preparing the high number of batteries required to Police the recently held Conservative Party Conference at Blackpool. The speed with which it formed new batteries, <2hrs, and the fast charge time of approximately 30 minutes meant that we significantly reduced the preparation time.
