Attention: when connecting the batteries, be very careful not to reverse the polarity, to avoid damaging them.
Status and information on charging
Each electric floor machine has a battery charge status monitoring display.
If most of the lights are on, the batteries have a good state of charge;
If more than half of the lights are off, then you should recharge them as soon as possible.
If they are discharged, they must be recharged using a suitable battery charger by connecting it to the appropriate socket supplied with the device. For a longer lifespan of the batteries it is necessary to avoid partial charging and also to completely discharge the batteries.
