Locating Battery Status

If a Logger reports a battery as ‘OK’ when generating a report, there is typically enough operational life left to complete a trip before being completely exhausted.

If, however, a product shows ‘LOW’ when being configured or downloaded, it should not be used again, but discarded in accordance with local regulations.

After successfully downloading your LogTag, proceed to the 'report' view. Once you have selected this view, check your LogTag's battery status.

Symptoms of a Low LogTag Battery

If you experience one of the following, this could be due to a low battery:

Important: These are not always battery related!

  • Downloading data isn’t possible
  • Software freezes during download
  • Strange light patterns. E.g. light does not always come back on.
  • Difference in temperature/humidity (See image on the right)

If you continue to use the Logger despite a low battery warning, there may not be enough power left to correctly record and store data, or to communicate with a PC.

Often this leads to data corruption and sometimes complete data loss.
