  • Do not unplug the scanner during the battery registration process

This NT510 tool only seems to allow registering an OEM battery of the same capacity. It DOES NOT let you change the battery charge rate. Also the tech support from FoxwellTech is very poor. They will not tell you this. Maybe they do not understand English or maybe just don't care.
Why promote the NT510 feature to change battery capacity when this feature does not exist on the NT510?
This guys in the demo must work for Foxwell.
