How long does the battery last? How can I recharge it?
The battery lasts 6 months in standby condition. In a standard use (home-work journey, therefore 2 parking events per day) the duration is around 4 months. We tested this on a motorcycle in the center of Rome (GSM mobile signal always above level 4/5) that was always parked outdoor.
The factors that can negatively affect battery life are: – Increased number of parking events (if you park 10 times a day the battery will be discharged faster) – Areas where the GSM cellular signal is not very strong (Smart Alarm must use more power to connect) – Parking inside garages where the GSM or GPS signal is weak or absent (Smart Alarm tries to connect several times and therefore uses more energy) – Alarm events because in that case the tracker sends the thief’s position during the movement
HOW TO RECHARGE THE BATTERY To recharge the battery, use the supplied USB cable and connect it to a battery charger of your smartphone or PC. It is also possible to use a powerbank that is particularly convenient for recharging the Tracker without having to dismantle it from your vehicle.
