Battery Care Guide for KIRISUN Radios
Welcome to the IMC team! Proper battery care is essential to ensure your KIRISUN radio operates optimally. Follow these tips for battery care and maintenance to maximize battery performance and lifespan.
Battery Care Tips
Charge the new battery continuously for 4-7 hours before first use. This ensures maximum capacity and performance.
Use Only KIRISUN
Charging the battery pack in non-KIRISUN equipment can damage the battery and void the warranty.
KIRISUN rapid chargers have temperature sensors to maintain safe charging temperatures.
Charge with Radio OFF
Charge the battery pack with the transceiver turned off to ensure it's fully charged.
Do not leave the radio and battery in the charger when not charging, as overcharging can shorten battery life.
Enable Battery Saver
Go to Menu > Settings > Power Saver and turn on the battery saver to optimize performance.
If a battery has been stored for an extended period, charge it continuously for 4-7 hours before use.
Ideal Storage Temperature
Store the battery pack at room temperature (around 25°C) to prevent leakage or reduce discharge capacity.
Open the cover of external interfaces on the right side of the radio to find the Micro USB port.
Connect the port using the programming/charging cable to charge the radio.
Uninstall the battery.
Connect the radio to the Micro USB port at the bottom of the radio using the data/charging cable to charge the radio. Green LED indicator light will be on beside the port.
Place the desktop charger on a horizontal surface, and keep off flammables.
Plug the power adapter of the charger into an AC power socket, and connect the power adapter cable to the jack at the back of the charger. Green LED indicator light will be on.
Put the radio (with the battery installed) into the charger to start charging. Red LED indicator light will be on. Ensure good contact between the battery and the charging terminals.
After charging for about 6 hours, red light will be off and green light on. Now the battery is fully charged. For optimized battery performance, continue charging for 1 to 2 hours, and then take out the radio.
Unplug the power adapter
