This article will illustrate how to charge your Tera barcode scanner properly and to avoid any issues caused by improper charging.
1. Charging Method
- For wireless barcode scanners
Applicable models: Tera 5100, 8100, HW0002, D5100, HW0006, 1100, HW0010, etc.
Connect Tera wireless barcode scanner to power source via 5V 1A1 charger or USB cable connected to USB portal from a laptop or other terminal device.
When the scanner is turned off and enters charging mode properly, the red light of the scanner will stay on, which means the scanner is in its normal charging state.
- For wireless scanner with charging cradle or base
Applicable models: Tera HW0008, HW0006, D6100, 6100, etc.
Place Tera barcode scanner on the charging cradle or charging base, and connect the cradle to power source via 5V1A charger or USB portal from a terminal device, e.g. laptop, desktop, etc. Make sure the barcode scanner is properly contacting to the charging base.
When the scanner is turned off and enters charging mode properly, the red light of the scanner will stay on, which means the scanner is in its normal charging state. If the red light turns on and off, it means there is no stable contact between the charging base and the scanner.
- There's no built in battery for the USB wired barcode scanners, therefore wired barcode scanners require a stable connection to your terminal device (with USB portals) to function.
- DO NOT charge Tera barcode scanner with USB port hub
- It is recommended to charge your scanner with the original USB cable included in the package.
2.Charging Voltage, Current
It is recommended that charging voltage does not exceed 5V and charging current does not exceed 1A.
Warning: DO NOT use PD fast chargers to charge your scanner (e.g. charging power higher than 5W), this may cause unnecessary issues.
5V 1A1: If you are charging your barcode scanner with a charger, please check the charging voltage, current, and power. It is recommended to charge your barcode scanner with a voltage no higher than 5V, a current no higher than 1A, and a power no higher than 5W.
