The fingerprint recognition circuit is powered by 2 x LR0003 AAA batteries that should be replaced every 18 months. The LED near the scanner will blink slowly in red when the batteries are nearly worn.
To access the batteries holder which is located inside the suitcase right under the carry handle, lay flat your suitcase and unzip the fabric. The zipper is hidden alongside of the the suitcase. Slide the cover of the batteries holder and replace with 2 x Alkaline AAA batteries.
We recommend that you purchase long-life alkaline battery to extend the period of use.
Should the batteries go completely dead while you suitcase is locked, you can power the lock from outside by plugging a USB C cable into the USB C socket located in the carry handle, opposite side of the scanner.
