Applies To: MODIS Ultra™, VANTAGE® Ultra

If the battery pack no longer holds a charge, contact your sales representative to order a new one. Replace the battery pack with original Snap-on replacement parts only.

The battery pack, while non-hazardous waste, does contain recyclable materials. If shipping is required, ship the battery pack to a recyling facility in accordance with local, national, and international regulations. For additional information contact:

  3. Slide the battery down to disengage the electrical contacts.
  4. Remove the battery from the tool housing.
  5. Align the tabs on the sides of the battery compartment with the slots on the new battery, then place the battery into the housing.
