How should I store my unit considering the lithium battery?

What  do we recommend?

 

Freedom7

Using fresh water rinse your Ocean Guardian, remove  all the salt water and sand from the unit, and dry with a microfiber cloth.  Make sure that you have removed the pouch and the pouch is dry before storing  your unit. 

 

Freedom+  Surf

Using fresh water rinse your Ocean Guardian, remove  all the salt water and sand from the unit, and dry with a microfiber cloth. Be  particularly careful while drying around the the power module connectors.

 

 

To keep your battery life healthy and to prevent problems with your  battery; store your Ocean Guardian in a cool, dark,  and dry place. Lithium-ion batteries last longer when stored  in cool,dry, and dark places.When you store your battery, do not store is fully  charged. After you have used it charge it to about 50%. If your battery has  become flat while you were in the ocean; only charge it for 2 hours. If you  only were in the water for 2-3 hours, clean your unit and store it at that  battery percentage. 

 

 

WHY DON'T YOU WANT TO STORE YOUR BATTERIES FULLY CHARGED?

Lithium-ion batteries; particularly 18650 batteries, which are in your  Ocean Guardian can only be charged for the recommended time of 4-5 hours. Why?  Because the battery life depletes when fully charged and stored at 4.2V; when  you store your lithium-ion batteries at 3.5V your battery life will last  longer. We recommend that you charge your unit before going into the  ocean.
