Several Zonar products contain lithium batteries:
- ZTrak GPS unit
- Connect tablet
As such, special care must be taken when shipping and storing these products.
Remove and properly dispose of lithium battery prior to shipping ZTrak unit. See our instructions on removing the ZTrak battery.
Shipping lithium batteries without proper certification can lead to substantial fines and penalties. Do not transport lithium battery (installed or removed) on passenger aircraft.
All lithium batteries must be recycled or disposed in accordance with applicable local, state, and federal regulations. Material Safety Data Sheets are available upon request.
ZTrak batteries not installed within a 4-week period from the time of delivery must be stored in a cool, dry place. Store in a cool (below 30° C (86° F)), dry and ventilated area, which is subject to little temperature change. Do not place the battery near heating equipment, nor expose to direct sunlight for long periods. Elevated temperatures can result in shortened battery life and degrade performance.
Tablet batteries are not removable and do not need to be removed in order to ship tablets. Properly labeled packaging is required to ship tablets with lithium batteries.
Zonar highly recommends using original Zonar packaging for shipping tablets, as it is already correctly labeled, as well as the included foam padding for safety and security. Whenever possible, use ground shipping instead of air, as lithium batteries are more tightly regulated for air travel.
