Ways to charge the battery

How to safely recharge the LubnBox battery

To ensure uninterrupted functionality, it is important to keep the LubnBox adequately charged.

The LubnBox offers two convenient methods for charging: using a wall power source with a micro USB with a phone charger adapter or utilizing a fully-charged power bank or an external solar panel.

By Wall Power

  1. Locate the micro USB port on the LubnBox.
  2. Connect one end of the micro USB cable to the micro USB port on the LubnBox.
  3. Plug the other end of the micro USB cable into the USB port of a phone charger adapter.
  4. Connect the phone charger adapter to a wall power outlet.
  5. Ensure the power outlet is functioning correctly and delivering power.
  6. Once connected, the LubnBox will begin charging with a flashing LED.
  7. Monitor the charging progress until the battery is fully charged with green LED. It usually takes 4 hours to charge from low battery to full, or 15 minutes of charging for emergency. 
  8. After the LubnBox is fully charged, disconnect the micro USB cable from the LubnBox and cover the port with the cap for weatherproof.

By Power Bank 

  1. Ensure that the power bank is fully charged before proceeding.
  2. Locate the micro USB port on the LubnBox.
  3. Connect one end of the micro USB cable to the micro USB port on the LubnBox.
  4. Connect the other end of the micro USB cable to the appropriate USB port on the power bank.
  5. Power on the power bank and ensure it has sufficient charge to supply the LubnBox.
  6. Once connected, the LubnBox will begin charging from the power bank.
  7. Monitor the charging progress until the battery is fully charged with green LED. 10~15 minutes of charging should provide enough power for emergency shackle release. 
  8. After the LubnBox is fully charged, disconnect the micro USB cable from the LubnBox and cover the port with the cap for weatherproof.

By External Solar Panel

Please refer to Solar panel compatibility.

 

Reminders:

  • Cover the USB port with the cap after charging for weatherproof.
  • Do not charge through a computer USB port. The computer
    USB port does not provide sufficient power. 
  • It is important to use a micro USB cable and phone charger adapter that are compatible with the LubnBox to ensure safe and efficient charging.
