Upon product registration, your purchase is recorded. Our Customer Care agents can review if your battery is under warranty.
How long will my ION Power Pack run?
The ION Power Pack, like all lithium-ion products, will naturally decrease in capacity over time from the 100% capacity of a new battery.

These times are based on 100% capacity:

My battery pack seems to have low runtime.
The initial charge on the pack is approximately 30%. Fully charge the pack (3.5 hours minimum/overnight preferred) and assess battery performance.

Note that battery run time is affected by the amount of work you are performing. Vacuuming on high pile carpet while using “ION Boost” will reduce battery run time quicker than vacuuming bare floors.

If you have more than one battery, it is recommended that you use each equally in use and charging.
What if my ION Power Pack feels warm or is indicating that it is too warm to charge?
Your ION Power Pack may feel warm in use as air passes through the vacuum. If it feels uncomfortably warm, stop using the vacuum and allow for the battery to cool. If the battery continues to feel warm, or you see any LED indicators as outlined in your instruction book, contact Customer Service.

The charger is designed to monitor many factors of the battery. After use, batteries can get warm, a condition that is not optimal for charging. In such cases, the charger waits for the battery temperature to decrease to the optimal point before it begins charging.
