Charging the Scanner Battery in the Cradle

For best performance, fully charge the digital scanner battery in your Motorola DS3578 before using the digital scanner for the first time. To charge the digital scanner battery, place the digital scanner in the cradle. The battery begins charging when the digital scanner LED indicator starts flashing green. A complete charge of a fully discharged battery can take up to 4.5 hours using external power and up to 10 hours using the interface cable.

Charge within the recommended temperature of 32° to 104° F (0° to 40° C) nominal, 41° to 95° F (5° to 35° C) deal.

Scanner Charging LED

The digital scanner’s green LED indicates charging activity. If the digital scanner is charging in fast mode (non-bus powered mode), the green LED blinks at a fast rate. If the digital scanner is charging in slow mode (bus-powered mode), the LED blinks at a slow rate.

If the digital scanner’s red LED begins flashing, indicating a charging problem, remove the digital scanner from
the cradle and replace the battery.
