For manufacturing and distribution companies, even short interruptions in daily operations can be costly. The simplest of things such as weak or defective batteries used in handheld computers can slow or impede your mobile data collection tasks. Taking the time to properly care for mobile device batteries can prolong their life and minimize the time lost in battery changes. Further, proper battery maintenance can lower total cost of ownership by reducing the frequency of replacement battery purchases. Without the proper care, poorly maintained batteries can result in wasted time and money.
Handheld computer batteries should allow warehouse employees to work the length of a typical shift without changing batteries and provide at least a year of service, or more, before being replaced. However, battery life is dependent on a number of environmental factors. How they are stored and charged, even how they are handled, can affect how many re-charge cycles a battery will last. That’s why it’s important to utilize the power management strategies below to ensure your organization is storing and charging your batteries properly.
Using these tips and guidelines, you can ensure that you are storing and using your batteries properly in order to get as much out of your investment as possible.
