XL-Wand Care

XL-Data Wands are robust and simple to care for. There are few modern devices that are as robust and asy to use and care for.

  • Charge XL-Wand for approx 10 hours once a week. Led on rear of wand indicates charging.
  • Carry XL-Wand always in its pouch.
  • Wand is not waterproof, do not get it wet.
