Maintaining Your Variax Battery

Recommended Posts

I had my Variax and battery mothballed for awhile during the pandemic, so read up on the best way to store lithium-ion batteries. A new one is expensive! In summary, most articles advised:


"Lithium-ion batteries should be stored at around 40% state of charge (between 30% and 50%). If improper storage occurs, lithium-ion batteries might become unstable."


If you don't have a voltmeter to check your charge, you can use the little button and LEDs (if your Variax uses these) on the Variax battery housing to check the charge status. I leave my Variax plugged in until only 2 LEDs are lit, then store the battery.
