It is essential you always ensure that the batteries in your MultiRAE Lite have been fully charged before using the device. There are three battery options available – standard duration rechargeable Li-ion battery, extended duration rechargeable Li-ion battery (which delivers 50% more runtime than the standard one) or an alkaline battery pack containing 4 AA batteries. In this article, we have focused on the standard and extended duration batteries.
Charging with the Desktop Cradle
To charge your batteries using this method, you will need to plug the AC/DC adaptor into the cradle and then plug the other end of the adaptor into a wall outlet. You can then place the MultiRAE into the cradle, making sure that the bottom of the device and the alignment pins meet properly, and press down until it locks into place. The device should begin charging automatically – the LED will glow red to indicate charging and will glow green when finished.
Charging with the Travel Charger
To charge your batteries using this method, you will need to check that it aligns correctly with the base of the MultiRAE Lite. There are 2 alignment on one side and 1 on the other, designed to mate with matching points on the bottom of the device. Then, you can insert the plug from the power supply into the jack on the side of the charger and plug the other end into a power source. The LED will grow red to indicate charging and glow green when finished.
Carrying the Device in a Vehicle
A truck mount, when used in conjunction with the front part of the desktop cradle, provides a way for the MultiRAE to be mounted safely in a vehicle. You will need to pre-drill a surface to accept the truck mount, then remove the front part of the cradle by pushing on the rubber release buttons. Insert the supply jack and slide the cradle into the truck mount, making sure it sits securely. When you sit the device in the cradle, it can be secured with the Velcro strap.
Replacing the Batteries
If you need to replace your MultiRAE Lite’s batteries, you will find that this can be easily achieved because the packs are plug-and-play. Begin by removing the battery from the device (slide the tab and tilt out the adaptor). Then, tilt a fully charged battery (or alkaline battery pack) into the compartment. To finish, slide the tab pack into place to secure the battery. Please note that this should only be undertaken in areas that are known to be non-hazardous.
It’s important to understand what the battery icon on the MultiRAE Lite’s display is telling you, as this will ensure that you’re never left without an appropriately charged sensor. When there are three, two or one bars inside the icon, it indicates the level of charge. When there are no bars inside the icon, it indicates the battery has low charge. When there is an exclamation point inside the icon, it indicates that the battery is empty and needs to be replaced immediately.
