Battery

Q. Is the lithium polymer battery installed/sealed in the unit, or can it be replaced in the field?

Batteries are not built into the blower unit but rather removable. They are charged using a battery docking station. Battery chargers are available for charging a single battery or up to six batteries at a time.  

 

Q. Is there a way to charge the battery in a vehicle?

The battery charger requires a 110V outlet. Batteries can be charged in a vehicle using a DC to AC inverter

Q. What is the recharge time on a fully depleted battery?

It takes approximately 4 hours to recharge a depleted battery. 

 

Q. How long will a battery last?

One fully charged pack (Part No. EVABAT1) will power the blower for approximately 4 to 16 hours depending upon factors such as speed, cartridge selected and cartridge loading. See reference for more information.
