Your Element comes with two AA alkaline batteries. Battery life in normal use should last around 30 hours. If you store your Element for long periods of time, remove the batteries to prevent corrosion. If you choose to power your Element with NiMH rechargeable batteries, it is important to configure the power supply setting on the device.

Press and hold MENU, then use to select Instrument settings.
Press OK.
Use the arrows to select Battery type and press OK.
Select NiMH 2.1Ah. Press OK.
Press ESC to return to the Main Setup Menu.

Note: We do not recommend using NiCad rechargeable batteries in the Element.


The Element is a sensitive instrument–handle it gently. Always store it in its cloth bag when not in use, and only wipe it clean with a soft, damp cloth. Never expose the Element to extreme temperatures, water, or mechanical force.


In the event your Element locks up, you may perform a hard reboot by removing the batteries for 5 minutes before replacing them and restarting the device.

If exposed to water

The Element is not water resistant! Exposure to water or any other liquid will cause serious damage. In case your Element gets wet, remove the batteries immediately to prevent more damage. If your Element was exposed to salt water, rinse it in warm, clean, fresh water. Dry your Element thoroughly and return it to your vendor or directly to Flytec for servicing.
