Husqvarna one battery system

Husqvarna battery systemHusqvarna is using the one battery system for all battery powered devices. All the manufacturer’s batteries fit and function perfectly in almost all devices. However, there are differences depending on how often the devices are used and the challenges that await them and the user. Accordingly, not every battery is recommended for your device.

Husqvarna has three categories to determine which battery fits the device and application. In the professional use the devices are designed for long working days and are accordingly powerful, efficient and sturdy. The batteries for these professional applications are weatherproof, powerful and very durable with up to 1,500 charging cycles.

Devices and batteries for regular use are oriented towards the tasks of larger gardens and professional work not occurring daily. Devices designed for work and tasks in the private user area around the house, yard, garden and forest belong to the category occasional use. The batteries for this area are particularly convincing due to their good price-performance ratio.

Proper battery care

To ensure that your battery can perform its service for a long time and delivers full power, you should treat it with care, just like any other tool. Husqvarna batteries can be used in temperatures between -10 °C and 40 °C. Whether on the work site or in the workshop: Protect your batteries from direct sunlight, heat, frost and moisture. Dirt, especially on the contacts, should be removed with a clean and dry tissue. If the device is not in use, it is best to remove the battery from it and store it in a clean and dry place. Even if modern chargers terminate the charging process when it is full, the battery should not remain in the charger.

Proper battery storage

Transport box with batteriesIf you don’t need a battery for a long time, you won’t put it in any corner. It is best to store it in a clean and dry place at a room temperature between 5 °C and 25 °C. Husqvarna recommends charging the battery to 30 to 50 percent for storage. On the BLi10 and BLi20, one LED of the battery indicator lights up at this charging level, and two LEDs on the Bli30, BLi100, BLi200,BLi200X and BLi300.

The batteries should not be stored in a metal box, the most suitable are the handy Systainers by Husqvarna. There must be no metal objects such as screws, nails, coins or similar near the batteries in storage. There is a risk that they will cause the battery terminals to short-circuit, resulting in a possible fire.
