SEGWAY® Battery Charging

Lithium Batteries

It is not healthy for a lithium battery to charge continuously. To get the most life out of your batteries, follow the steps below.

1. Purchase a digital timer (like timers used for Christmas Lights)

2. Set the timer so it is on no more than 8-10 hours per day.

3. Allowing your batteries to rest 30 minutes after being used before starting to charge.

4. Following a charge, allow the batteries to rest for 30 minutes before being used.

5. For long term storage, disconnect your batteries from the SEGWAY® completely, and fully charge them. Your batteries can be safely stored this way and should be reconnected and charged every 2-3 months to maintain proper charge. Please be advised long term storage of 6-8 months will decrease battery performance. Intermittent use is recommended.

This can typically be rectified by fully charging the batteries and using them until the SEGWAY® indicates low battery. Lean the machine up against a wall and allow it to fully drain. Allow 12-14 hours for a full charge and repeat the process until you notice the battery is holding a full charge again.
