Why are these batteries the best for your printer?

A battery pack that is not fully discharged has a shorter charging time. The battery can be used if it is at least 80% charged. However, a fully charged battery is always recommended to maintain its maximum battery life.

If the battery is fully charged, the printer can load the entire printhead. But in conditions such as low temperature or low pressure, the health of the battery will decline. As a result, printers will change their printing technology to divide the print line into small pieces. That way, it can print safely without draining battery life.

Extend battery life

Are you looking to extend battery life and expect the same faster operation and flexibility as before? Follow some of these points and it will help you extend the life of your battery.

Always charge the battery in cool temperatures or temperatures below 40 degrees Celsius.

Use the media that suits your printing needs. Zebra Authorized Resellers can help you analyze the best media for your application.

You should always have spare batteries. Try buying extra batteries.

If you will not be using the printer for a day or more, remove the battery as it will prevent the battery from discharging.
