I’m turning on my Bin Tug, but the indicator light doesn’t come on. What’s wrong?
The light may simply be blown or disconnected. Check to see if the unit is responsive to the controls. If so, the light just needs to be replaced. Also, ensure that the e-stop button above the controls on the arm is released, or your unit will not power on.
How long does it take for my batteries to recharge?
A specific time is difficult to determine due to many variables:
- Degree of discharge
- Age and condition of batteries
It takes about 60% of the charge time for the battery to go from 0-90% charged. The remaining 40% adds on the last 10% of charge to the battery. We recommend that a good overnight charge will be sufficient for use.
Will the charger overcharge my batteries?
No. Once the batteries have been fully charged, the charger switches to a constant voltage float/standby mode, nominally at 2.3 volts per cell. At such a low voltage, the battery will suffer minimal electrolyte loss. The charge current drops to a very low level, sufficient to maintain a fully charged battery. By leaving the unit charging you will prevent any risk of battery damage resulting from leaving it discharged for a period of time.
