The batteries used in the robots are maintenance-free and do not need any service during normal operations.

When it is not possible to charge the robots regularly, e.g. when the system is not operational or if the robot is not working and needs to sent to Pio for maintenance, the batteries must be physically disconnected.

When you get a new robot that will replace a failed robot in your grid, it is possible that the batteries are packed separately in the robot transport case. In that case you should follow the instruction below on how to install batteries.
