About the Battery

The mobile computer ships with a 3.85 VDC, 15.5 watt-hour Li-ion battery manufactured for Honeywell International Inc.

We recommend use of Honeywell Li-ion battery packs. Use of any non-Honeywell battery may result in damage not covered by the warranty.
Ensure all components are dry prior to placing the battery in the computer. Mating wet components may cause damage not covered by the warranty.

Charge the Mobile Computer

The mobile computer ships with a partially charged battery. Charge the battery with a CT45 series charging device for a minimum of 4 hours. Using the computer while charging the battery increases the time required to reach a full charge.

We recommend the use of Honeywell accessories and power adapters. Use of any non-Honeywell accessories or power adapters may cause damage not covered by the warranty.

CT45/CT45 XP series mobile computers are designed for use with CT40/CT45 charging accessories. For more information, see the CT40/CT45 Series Accessory Guide available for download at

Ensure all components are dry prior to mating the computers and batteries with peripheral devices. Mating wet components may cause damage not covered by the warranty.

About CT45 XP Models with USB Type C Connector

You can use a USB cable to charge the mobile computer from a host device (e.g., laptop or desktop computer). The connected host device must supply a minimum power output of 5V, 1A to the CT45/CT45 XP or the battery will not charge.
Note: If the mobile computer is drawing more current than supplied by the charging source, charging will not take place.

Scanning a barcode to install applications, certificates, configuration files, and licenses on the computer is restricted unless you enable Provisioning mode in the Settings app. To learn more, see the user guide.
