FAQ# 2178: Why is my Wireless scanner no longer holding a charge?

Question

Why is my Wireless scanner no longer holding a charge?

Answer

Depending on the age of the scanner, you may want to look at replacing the battery. Batteries will have have an average lifespan based on how often its being used. We find that an average of 3-5 years is common for daily use.

If your battery is brand new, you may want to leave it on the charger for several hours to charge. You may also want to consider plugging it into an outlet with a power adapter to charge; many scanner cradles receive a trickle charge when plugged in with USB and can take longer to reach a full charge.
