Optimal Charging Practices for Your Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Charge the battery fully before first use: When using the robot vacuum for the first time, charge the battery completely to maximize its capacity and longevity.

Keep the charging contacts clean: Periodically clean the charging contacts on both the robot vacuum and the charging dock with a dry cloth to ensure proper electrical connection and efficient charging.

Avoid extreme temperatures: Store and use the robot vacuum in a temperature-controlled environment, away from direct sunlight or freezing conditions, as extreme temperatures can affect battery performance and lifespan.
