EGO Power+ battery packs are equipped with an advanced self-maintenance function to extend the battery life. Charge the battery and then store it indoors at normal household temperature. After one month of storage, the battery will  automatically perform a self-discharge operation and then enter sleep mode, where it will maintain 30% of its charge capacity. This charge level is optimal for the battery life. If stored for a month or longer, fully recharge the battery before the next use. If you are planning on storing your mower for a very long period of time, we recommend that your recharge the battery every six months.
