Battery Care Summary
The Dart uses a Li-Po battery. If these batteries are not cared for correctly, their performance will degrade and they can be hazardous. For a complete guide to battery care, see the Digital Matter Battery Notice.
- Store batteries at room temperature.
- Maintain stored battery levels at 60% (about 3.8V) for maximum life.
- Check and recharge batteries every 4-6 months.
Lithium Polymer batteries have a finite life. Depending on your application, battery maintenance may be important. For example, if used for stolen vehicle recovery, the backup battery is critical and should be replaced every 2-3 years.
When on external power, the Dart will run without a battery or with an old battery. There may not be any signs of aging or degradation until external power is removed.
