TRACKER system battery care
Cat 5 Plus, Locate, Monitor and Retrieve
Battery Powered TRACKER Retrieve
Your TRACKER system has a non-rechargeable internal back up battery.
Should your main car battery be either disconnected or allowed to go flat it will have an impact on your TRACKER's internal back up battery which will ‘kick in’ to power your system. This will deplete the charge on your back up battery.
Under normal vehicle use your back up battery should last for 3 years. Thatcham consider normal vehicle use to be vehicles daily use with consideration for 3 storage periods not exceeding 3 weeks per annum.
If your vehicle is stolen and TRACKER activates your system, if your main vehicle battery is disconnected your system relies on the back up battery to transmit to TRACKER. For this reason you should look after your back up battery and the health of your system should be checked following a theft.
Under Thatcham requirements TRACKER will advise you should your TRACKER's internal back up battery reach a critical low threshold point.
All batteries degrade over time and will eventually reach the end of their service life. Thatcham recommend that the backup battery is replaced every 3-5 years.
In most cases TRACKER will levy a charge to come out and replace your TRACKER's internal back up battery should it fail or reach a critical low threshold point.
Your TRACKER system has a non-rechargeable internal battery, and does not take any power from your vehicle’s main battery.
The battery has a service life of 5 years standby. At the end of 5 years you will need a new system.
If your vehicle is stolen and TRACKER activates your system it uses it’s battery to transmit to TRACKER. This drains the battery and therefore you will need a new system following a theft.
