NimH Battery and Charger Instructions: Your LiteHawk RANGER comes with a NimH Battery and a USB Charger.
Battery: The rechargable 9.6V NimH battery provides the power to propel your model. You should expect 7-10 Min. run time. Extra batteries are available at www.litehawk.ca.
-The Hovercraft is suspended by a cushion of air, because of this, if the battery is run down too low, it will stop creating lift. To warn you, there is an audible low battery warning. If you hear an alarm notification, drive your RANGER over to a safe place . Walk over, turn it off, and unplug the battery from the Hovercraft. Let the battery cool down 10 minutes before recharging, so no damage will be done to it. Also let the motors in the Hovercraft cool off for 5 minutes before installing the next battery.
To Charge: Plug the USB Charger into a USB wall plug adaptor ( not included ). The LED light will not come on when connected to power.
