Crate Wizards have a high-quality 21 amp/hr gel battery and an automatic battery charger built in. Ideally, the machine should be charged every night, or whenever it is not being used for several hours.
To recharge the battery, simply plug the charging lead supplied into the socket at the rear of the main chassis, and into a standard 240 volt outlet. A full recharge should take 2 to 3 hours.
The amount of use available from a full charge of the battery is dependent on a number of factors, but is generally a factor of the weight being lifted and the height it is lifted to.
The battery is sealed and requires no maintenance.
Gel batteries as supplied have an average life expectancy of 2 - 3 years, and require no maintenance.
