Question
How long will the batteries for the portable incubator (Catalog No. 25699-00) last?
Summary
Portable incubator batteries last 12 hours at ambient temperature
Answer
A charged battery for the portable incubator will last 12 hours at ambient temperature. Because microbiological tests normally require at least 24 hours incubation, the portable incubator is best used for transport of samples to a place where the incubator can be plugged into an electrical outlet using the battery eliminator. The portable incubator can also be plugged into the cigarette lighter of an automobile. At minimum take 3 charged batteries with you into the field. The total number of batteries needed depends on the incubation time for your test, the temperature at the location where the incubator will be used, and the availability of an electrical outlet or automobile. The batteries can be recharged using the battery recharger, which must be plugged into an electrical outlet.
