Collar storage

Recommended Posts

I don't use my Garmin Alpha much after bird season and was wondering what others do to store them. Do you keep them on charge ? Periodically charge ?

I charge mine to full and remove the battery from the handheld then store them in my possibles bag.  Usually about late July or early August I'll get them out and refresh the charge while I go through my pre-season equipment check.  I've not had problems with the batteries getting weak.

I charge mine periodically in the spring and summer just to make sure....

I don’t have an Alpha but do use an Astro with T5 collars and Garmin Pro 70 with the PT 10 collars.  I charge them a couple times during the off season. I have done that for years with my old DC 40 collars and the Tritronics Exp ecollars. The only battery I have had fail in 10+ years is a less than 2 year old one in a T5 mini a few weeks ago.
