Finding the optimal storage location
To hibernate your robot lawn mower, you should find a dry place where your equipment and batteries can be stored frost-free and protected from cold and damp at room temperature and normal humidity. We recommend that you also dismantle the charging station and store it safely over the winter. This also provides the best possible protection for the charging contacts on the station.
You don't have enough space, your garage and workshop are full? In this case, you should find out about our winter service, which not only takes care of the maintenance of your robot lawn mower, but can also store your machine until the new gardening season.
The robotic lawn mower should be stored frost-free and protected, this is also recommended for the charging station.
Tips for storage of the battery
Our FREELEXO robotic mowers are operated with our powerful Power X-Change batteries This offers you the great advantage that if the battery is damaged, you do not have to send the whole robot lawn mower for repair or replace it, but can simply insert a new Power X-Change battery. The batteries can also be combined with all our battery-powered tools from the workshop and garden areas. So you can use the PXC battery from the robot lawn mower in winter as well as in summer in all our other devices!
You would rather store your Power X-Change battery over the winter? No problem at all. Thanks to state-of-the-art lithium-ion technology, the self-discharge of our batteries is very low. Nevertheless, you should recharge the battery before storage and check the charge level once or twice during the winter months to avoid deep discharge. Of course, you can also fully charge your PXC battery, but the lithium-ion batteries feel most comfortable at a charge level of 30 to 60 percent, i.e. two lit LEDs on the charge level indicator.
Ideally, you should store the battery in a dry place that is protected from dust and has a cool temperature of 15 to 20 degrees. The battery should also be protected from direct sunlight and heat and must be disconnected from the charger. The garage and the garden shed are therefore not suitable storage locations due to the cold temperatures in winter. Better find a place in the frost-free basement, in the house or in the workshop.
To maintain the battery capacity over the winter, it should be stored at room temperature.
