  • Lithium-ion batteries are subject to disposal and recycling regulations that vary by country and region. Always check and follow your applicable regulations before disposing of any battery. Contact Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation ( for U.S.A. and Canada, or your local battery recycling organization.
  • Many countries prohibit the disposal of waste batteries in standard waste receptacles.
  • Place only discharged batteries in a battery collection container. Use electrical tape or other approved covering over the battery connection points to prevent short circuits.

Transporting batteries

This small lithium rechargeable battery does not exceed a capacity of 100 Wh per battery or 20 Wh per component cell. Each battery type has been shown by the manufacturer to comply with the applicable requirements of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria Part III, Subsection 38.3 and may not be shipped by air at a state of charge greater than 30% of its rated capacity unless packed with or installed in the associated equipment that it powers. Consult your carrier to determine which lithium battery transportation requirements are applicable to your configuration, including to its re-packaging and re-labeling, prior to reshipment of the product by any mode of transport.


The TEKBAT-XX rechargeable battery is intended for use with specifically-designed Tektronix products. The battery consists of an array of lithium-ion cells and an internal battery controller device, including internal fault protection.

Note:The TEKBAT-XX battery and TEKCHG-XX external battery charger are the replacement products for the WFM200BA battery and WFM200BC external battery charger. The TEKBAT-XX battery supports charging in the TEKCHG-XX or legacy WFM200BC external battery charger.

Refer to your instrument's documentation to ensure this is the proper battery for your instrument.

When the battery is not installed in an instrument, you can check the battery charge level by pressing the Check button on the back of the battery. LEDs illuminate to indicate the amount of charge in increments of approximately 20%.

Note:For optimum performance, charge the battery completely before using it for the first time or after prolonged storage.

Battery maintenance guidelines

The TEKBAT-XX lithium-ion rechargeable battery requires routine maintenance and care in its use and handling. Be sure to use the following guidelines to safely use the TEKBAT-XX lithium-ion batteries and achieve the maximum battery life span.

Battery considerations

Do not leave a battery unused for an extended period of time, either in the product or in storage. When a battery has been unused for six months, check the charge status, and charge or dispose of the battery as appropriate. See Charging the battery and Battery recycling.

The typical estimated life of a lithium-ion battery is about two to three years, or 300 to 500 charge cycles, whichever occurs first.

A rechargeable lithium-ion battery has a limited life and will gradually lose its capacity to hold a charge. This loss of capacity (aging) is irreversible. As the battery loses capacity, the length of time it will power the product (run time) decreases.

A lithium-ion battery continues to slowly discharge (self-discharge) when not in use or while in storage. You need to routinely check the charge status of the battery.

Only use the battery in approved Tektronix instruments.

Battery maintenance

  • Observe and note the run time that a new fully-charged battery provides for powering your product. You can use this new battery run time as a basis to compare run times for older batteries. The run time of your battery will vary depending on the product's configuration and the applications that you run.
  • The battery gives the best performance when operated at normal room temperature, 20°C ±5°C (68°F ±9°F).
  • Routinely check the charge status of the battery.
  • Carefully monitor a battery that is approaching the end of its estimated life.
  • Consider replacing the battery with a new one if the battery run time drops below about 80% of the original run time, or the battery charge time increases significantly.
  • Follow the storage requirements if you store or do not use a battery for an extended period. If you do not follow the storage requirements, and the battery will not power the instrument when installed, consider the battery to be damaged. Do not connect power to the instrument during this time. Remove the battery from the instrument. Do not attempt to recharge or reuse the battery. Replace it with a new battery.

Battery charging

The battery charges automatically when installed in an approved Tektronix instrument that is connected to an external power supply. You can also charge the battery with the Tektronix external battery charger (TEKCHG-XX). Remove the battery from the charger when charging is complete.

A lithium-ion battery will self-discharge during non-use. To achieve the longest operating time, charge your battery before use. If you plan to store batteries, read the instructions in the Battery storage section of this document.

ConfigurationTypical charging time
One fully discharged battery charging in the instrument.Time varies per instrument type and the instrument's power usage while charging. See instrument user manual for charge time.
One or two fully discharged batteries charging in the Tektronix external battery charger5 hours
CAUTION:To avoid damage to the battery, use only the Tektronix external battery charger or an approved instrument to charge the battery. Do not connect any other voltage source to the battery.

For optimum performance, charge the battery completely before using it for the first time or after prolonged storage.

To discharge the battery completely, continue to run the instrument on the battery until automatic shutdown occurs. After the instrument shuts down, either recharge the battery promptly or remove it from the instrument until you are ready to recharge the battery.

Note:To prolong the life of the battery and to prevent shutdown, do not operate or charge the battery at high temperatures. For best results, allow the battery to cool to room temperature before using or charging the battery.

Do not leave a battery discharged for extended periods. See the Storing batteries section for information on how to properly store a battery.

The battery stops charging under the following conditions:
  • The battery is fully charged.
  • The internal temperature of the battery exceeds the safe charging threshold.
  • A fault condition occurs.
The battery shuts down and disconnects itself from the instrument under the following conditions:
  • The battery is fully discharged.
  • The internal temperature of the battery exceeds the safe discharging threshold.
  • A fault condition occurs.

Battery handling

  • Do not disassemble, crush, drop, or puncture the battery.
  • Do not short the external contacts on the battery.
  • Do not expose the battery to fire or water.
  • Do not expose the battery to temperatures above +60°C (+140°F).
  • Seek medical advice if a battery or part of it has been swallowed.
  • Do not put batteries near heat or fire. Do not put in sunlight.
  • Keep the battery clean and dry. Clean dirty connectors with a dry, clean cloth.
  • Batteries contain hazardous chemicals that can cause burns or explode. If exposure to chemicals occurs, clean with soap and water and get medical aid. Repair the product before use if the battery leaks.
  • Do not attempt to open, modify, reform or repair a battery that appears to be malfunctioning, or which has been physically damaged.
  • Keep the battery away from children and animals.
  • Avoid exposing the battery to excessive shock or vibration.
  • Do not use a damaged battery or charger.
  • If a battery has leaking fluids, do not touch any fluids. Dispose of a leaking battery. See the Battery recycling section for information on disposal and recycling.
  • In case of eye contact with fluid, do not rub eyes. Immediately flush eyes thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower lids, until no evidence of the fluid remains. Seek medical attention.

Battery storage

  • Store batteries in a low-humidity environment free of corrosive gases. Storing batteries in high-humidity environments, or outside the temperature range, can cause oxidation on the metallic parts, increased leakage, significant aging and premature failure.
  • Do not store batteries near heat or fire. Do not store in the sunlight.
  • Do not keep batteries in a place where the terminals can be shorted by metal objects (for example, coins, paper clips, or pens).
  • Do not remove a battery from its original packaging until required for use.
  • When possible remove the battery from the equipment when not in use.
  • Charge the battery to approximately 50% of capacity at least once every six months.
  • Remove the battery and store it separately from the instrument. Refer to the documentation for your instrument for instructions on removing and installing the battery.
  • For optimal battery life, store the battery at temperatures between +5°C and +25°C (+41°F and +77°F). Higher temperatures reduce the battery storage life.
