How to check the battery status on your logger

It is very hard to measure the percentage remaining in a battery. Most of the batteries used in loggers will hold their voltage until they are almost empty, and then the voltage will start to decrease. 

As a result, we tend to be able to tell you the battery is “OK” or “needs changing soon”.

Remember: We will send you email notifications when the battery is running low. You don’t need to “check” to see if the battery is low. We will cover this first in this article, and then show you how to check the battery level within Clever Logger

The low battery alarm

We will send a low battery alarm:

  • when we notice the voltage start to drop significantly, or
  • every 12 months if the battery life is less than 2 years (to comply with Strive For Five)

The low battery alarm email will then repeat until the battery is replaced.

Checking the battery status

You can check the status of your logger in the Clever Logger dashboard.

Click on Locations in the menu, then click on the logger you would like to check.

Click on this and select Battery Status.

In the Battery Status panel, you can see the last time the battery was changed and when it will need to be replaced. For the CLT-01 logger, these dates will be 12 months apart, for the reasons previously discussed.

Starlight Children's Foundation

Australia has one of the best healthcare systems in the world. But sick children and young people need more than the exceptional care that our clinicians can offer.  They need the social and emotional support that lets them be a child. 

This is Starlight’s job. For over 30 years we have used play, social connection and creativity to support children and young people in some of their toughest times and to positively change their healthcare experience.

We work alongside clinicians, wherever they go, from by the bedside in a major paediatric hospital to mobile clinics visiting remote communities. Working in partnership to deliver the best possible care for children and young people across the whole country, so that they can live their best lives.
