TENS Machine Maintenance Guide
Plug the charger into mains electrical power outlet. The use of any attachment not supplied with the charger may result in the risk of, electric shock, or injury.
Follow the battery instructions for charging time.
After the battery recommended charging time has been completed, unplug the charger and remove the battery.
Batteries must always be stored in a fully charged condition.
To ensure best possible battery performance we recommend you follow these guidelines:
A - Overcharging the batteries for up to 24 hours will not normally damage them but repeated overcharging may diminish useful battery life.
B - Always store batteries in their charged condition. After a battery has been discharged, then recharge it as soon as ever possible. If the battery is stored more than 60 days, it will often need to be recharged.
C - Do not short circut the terminals of your battery. This will often cause the battery to get hot and can make for permanent damage. Avoid storing the batteries in your pocket or purse where the terminals may accidentally come into contact with any coins, keys or metal objects.

Change the batteries regularly. If you’re not expecting to use your TENS unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to prevent any possible acid from leaking into the machine.
