How to Charge your Photon tank battery

  • Charge the battery by connecting it to the Tank USB Charger, avoid attaching it too tight or you will break your battery, insert the charger into a functioning USB Port or a compatible wall adaptor, we recommend you use the Tank USB and Adaptor supplied by VIP.
    The battery is charged when the red colour LED on the Tank USB charger changes to a constant green LED colour, the battery should be removed from the charger once the charging cycle completes or after maximum 3 hours.
  • To charge it takes approx 3 hours.
  • It will last when fully charged for approx 3-4 days, mini battery will last 1-2 days.
  • Charge it when you can as letting it discharge completely will decrease the life span.
