We're going to show how to charge any of the Tri-Tronics Field and Pro units. It's all the same. You've got a collar cradle and a transmitter cable, wall plug. Plug up to your wall here. This is a dual lead plug. One goes into the transmitter charger and one goes into the cradle. Watch the light on the cradle when we plug this one up. It's going to go red, and then green, and then out.
What that's doing is it's telling you that the cradle is working correctly. The transmitter cradle does not have any lights on it. But when you plug it up the first time and every time you plug it up it should have that sequence of lights.
This is the charging face right here for the EXP collar. It snaps into this cradle. You've got some grooves here on the front. So you take your cradle and it snaps into place. Now watch the light there. It's going to glow red.
When the collar is finished it will glow green. Your transmitter snaps into your transmitter charger. It's a little different. It doesn't really pop in all that easy. You've got to put a little pressure on it. And then it uses the light on the transmitter. You'll notice it cut on for a second, cut off, and then it cut back on and is glowing red. It will do that every time and then it should glow red. When it's finished it will glow green.
It takes about two hours to get a full charge on a completely drained system. Transmitters don't require being charged that often. I typically charge mine every time when I'm charging my collars just so that I know everything is ready to go at the same time.
But a pretty simple process. It's going to tell you what you need to do as far as from the lights. And you don't really have to think about it all that much.
When I'm using my system on a regular basis, once a week typically is going to get most folks by. You can charge it more often than that if you need to. It's not going to hurt anything.
After your system is finished charging, then you simply remove everything from the cradle. On the collar, it's even got instructions here for you. It says, "Push here to release." All you do is push down and it comes right out. It's set up where it's not going to come out by itself. You just simply have to push down on the front of it and the color pops out.
The transmitter is a little different. You grab it from the back and you gotta pop it off. And, as you can see, it's a little tight. So it snaps on there. And it snaps off. After you do it a couple times it gets a little easier. But we have some folks that occasionally feel like they are going to break something. You are not. It's really tough. You just snap it off there. And see, it's even getting easier the more we do it.
But it holds into place. What's nice about it is it will stand up on its own. When you are through, snap her off.
