Re: [IPk] Low battery answer



Eleanor

I checked with HQ on the battery alarm statement in the manual with HQ
Customer service.  The low battery alarm can sound up to 12 times ie once
per hour.  However the number of alrm sounds you hear is dependent on how
much the battery has been drained by using the memory etc etc. so you may
not get a further 12 hours use once the alarm sounds.

The best practice is to always carry a couple of spare batteries with you
and to have a couple spare at home/other place.  (and no Di this is not a
cynical attempt to sqeeze a few more sales out of the unsuspecting customer,
it is an attempt to ensure that proper safety precautions are followed!!)

Best wishes

When Disetronic pumps have an electronic low battery it automatically
switches off and you canít stop it from beeping until you change the
battery. Whereas when there is a low motor battery it beeps when in the run
mode until you push a button and repeats this every hour until you change
the battery.

So, there we are. Iíve answered my own question! Except I donít know how
long the low motor battery will last if you can hack the beepings every
hour!
