Specific battery care and longevity information
Your new Burner BrakeCore contains a Lithium Polymer battery which is considered to be one of the highest quality batteries on the market. This means that the battery can be charged with any level of charge without affecting the longevity of your battery.
However, it’s important to note that if you intend to store your light for a period of 2 months or more. You will need to leave the light with over 20% charge. Failure to do so can result in decreased longevity of the battery life within your Burner BrakeCore.
We advise setting a reminder in your phone to charge not only your Burner BrakeCore but all electrical devices every two months to prolong their operating life.
