Exact battery life does vary, but with proper care the battery should last several years. It is important to store the machine (and battery) in a dry location with regulated temperatures. Moisture and extreme heat or cold may damage the battery and shorten battery's lifespan. The battery should be fully charged before the machine is stored, even if it was only used for a short time. Additionally, it is important to charge the battery at least once a month even when the machine is not in use.

Can this machine operate on electricity as well as battery ?
This unit only runs on battery power, but there are extended batteries and super-fast chargers available for purchase with this unit, which will extend the battery life by several hours.
