About the Battery

The DEX-BLE-10 ships with an installed Li-ion 3.7 VDC, 750 mAh battery manufactured for Honeywell International Inc. The operating temperature is -20°C (-4 °F) to 60°C (140 °F)

 Use only Honeywell Li-ion battery pack model DEX-10-BATTERY. 

 Ensure all components are dry prior to placing the battery in the DEX-BLE-10. Mating wet components may cause damage not covered by the warranty.

Charge the Battery

The DEX-BLE-10 ships with a partially charged battery. Charge the battery for a minimum of 4 hours before initial use.

 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.

USB Charge Cable

The USB cable provides two options for charging the DEX wireless adapter.

Note: The micro USB connector on the DEX-BLE-10 only supports charging the battery and cannot be used for data transfer.

Option 1: Charging From a Power Outlet
Use only a UL Listed power supply that has been qualified by Honeywell with an output rated at 5VDC and 2A with the device.
