General questions

How long will the battery last?

Atmotube PRO

We’re using a 2000 mAh capacity Li-ion battery for Atmotube PRO. Atmotube PRO can work a week on a single charge if you use PM sensor 10 times a day for about 10 minutes each time.

Atmotube PLUS

We are using a rechargeable 500 mAh capacity Li-ion battery in Atmotube PLUS. Atmotube PLUS battery charge lasts about 7 days (depends on environmental conditions).

Li-ion battery lifetime

Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries require routine maintenance and care in their use and handling. Read and follow the guidelines in this document to safely use Lithium-Ion batteries and achieve the maximum battery life span.

Do not leave batteries unused for extended periods of time, either in the product or in storage. When a battery has been unused for 6 months, check the charge status and charge or dispose of the battery as appropriate.

The typical estimated life of a Lithium-Ion battery is about two to three years or 300 to 500 charge cycles, whichever occurs first. One charge cycle is a period of use from fully charged, to fully discharged, and fully recharged again. Use a two to three year life expectancy for batteries that do not run through complete charge cycles.

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries have a limited life and will gradually lose their capacity to hold a charge. This loss of capacity (aging) is irreversible. As the battery loses capacity, the length of time it will power the product (run time) decreases.

Lithium-Ion batteries continue to slowly discharge (self-discharge) when not in use or while in storage.
