The meter displays the message Low Battery or Battery Urgent


The internal battery is close to the end of its life.


UPDATED: April 30, 2018

Pressing the Clear/Back button may clear the message and allow you to run mail temporarily.

To safely restart the meter:
  1. Unplug the power cord.
  2. Wait one to three minutes.
  3. Plug the power cord back in, ensuring that it is plugged directly into a wall outlet.
If the battery message returns after restarting, the meter will need to be replaced. The meter battery cannot be replaced like an ordinary household battery. It is part of the meter security device that protects your postage funds. To ensure uninterrupted functionality, you must request a replacement meter from Pitney Bowes (free of charge).

Sign in and create a case for technical support to request a meter replacement.

Note: The meter's battery enables your settings and other information to be saved. If your battery is allowed to expire, you will lose this information.
