The battery may be recharged at any time, full discharge is not necessary. The WorkStar® 1000 is eqipped with 3 green LED battery status indicators, which monitor the charge and discharge level of the battery pack.
To maximize battery life, do not use or charge the batteries when they are hot, specifically, let the batteries cool down for about 20 minutes before a) recharging, if the light has been used in the HI setting, and b) turning the light ON after recharging.
Warning: Li-ion batteries should never be left charging while unattended. The charger turns off when the charging cycle is complete (all 3 indicator LEDs are solid green), so theoretically a WorkStar® 1000 can be left on charge indefinitely, however we recommend that you unplug the charger once the charge completes. Li-ion batteries pack a lot energy and must always be supervised while charging.
Yes, if the battery has run out, but you still need light, you can run the light while plugged in. However, the charger may only power the light on the "Low" setting, while charging the battery pack, because it is not designed to deliver enough power to operate the light on the "High" setting while charging.
The battery may start to lose capacity after about 1000 full charge/discharge cycles.
Yes, the power supply works from 100 to 220 VAC and with both 50 and 60 Hz. However, the power supply only has a standard "Type A", two prong plug, so you will need a plug adapter for other pin configurations.
