GymAware Tips and Tutorials

Read these articles to see how the PowerTool can be used to get the most out of your athletes.

GymAware PowerTool - Battery

Flat Battery Symptoms

When a unit is not used for an extended period the battery will slowly be depleted to the point that it will not be able to start the PowerTool.

When a charger is then connected, the yellow charge LED will illuminate to indicate that charging has begun.

At this point the PowerTool will show it is starting by flashing the red and green LEDs once, illuminating the yellow LED next to them and by beeping once.

If the battery voltage is too low, the PowerTool will then turn off. However, during charging, the voltage will rise again and the PowerTool will turn back on. To the user this will appear as the erratic behaviour of beeping repeatedly while the yellow LED is on and the red and green LED's flash. This is not a fault. The charger should remain connected until the PowerTool turns on and remains on, in which case the erratic behaviour will cease. This should only take a few minutes.

If the battery was so severely depleted that it has switched itself off internally, the charger in the latest PowerTools is capable of turning the battery back on, but it may take up to 43 minutes to do so. If after that time the charge LED has turned off and the PowerTool hasn't started, disconnect the charger and reconnect to make a second attempt. If it has not been able to turn on the battery after the second attempt, the battery will need to be replaced.

If the PowerTool is to be put aside for an extended period, it should be put on charge for 30 minutes every six months to alleviate this annoying behaviour.
