Lithium-ion batteries are known for losing some of their capacity over time and/or after a high number of charge cycles. The SPORTSTER’s lithium-ion battery retains at least 75% of its capacity for the first two years or 300 charge cycles – whichever is reached first.

Upon expiry of this warranty period, the SPORTSTER’s battery can be replaced by the SIGMA SPORT service department subject to the provision of a purchase receipt. Price on request.

If you store the SPORTSTER for a long time (more than three months) without use, ensure that you do so at a temperature of between 0°C and 20°C and a low humidity level. The pre-storage charge status should be approximately 60%.

Can the SPORTSTER also be recharged from a computer?
Yes, but it takes far longer to recharge.
