Short & sweet tips from our Technical Support team
by Dr. David Schubring
Scientific Consultant (Brain Products)
The following 2 quick tips on “Disinfection Concentrates” and “Preventing a Deep Discharge of your Amplifier Batteries” are general reminders, but especially notable during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
Whitelist of recommended disinfection concentrates
for Caps and Electrodes
For disinfection against SARS-CoV-2 we recommend the Perfektan TB disinfecting agent, which is widely available within the EU, and the Envirocide disinfecting agent outside of the EU.
Should none of these brands be available to you, our partners at EASYCAP have also prepared a whitelist of recommended disinfection concentrates.
How to prevent a deep discharge of your amplifier batteries
during extended storing times
All our batteries have a built-in deep discharge protection, which prevents the full discharge of a battery during use and retains a small charge percentage for safety reasons.
However, during extended storage times like in the case of a COVID shutdown, a full discharge can still happen if the battery is not regularly charged.
Hence, we generally recommend for all our batteries
i.e. PowerPack, PowerUnit, actiPOWER and LiveAmp battery
› Temperature (charging): 10 °C to 30 °C (50 °F to 86 °F)
› Temperature (storage): 0 °C to 40 °C (32 °F to 104 °F)
› Relative humidity: 45 % to 80 %, non-condensing
› Atmospheric pressure: 700 hPa to 1,050 hPa
Note: Some batteries have less strict specifications than stated above, but these specifications are shared by all. You can find more details in the appendix of the respective amplifier operating instructions.
