How to Customize Power Settings on the CS12x

This article describes customizing how the SeeSnake® CS12x Wi-Fi enabled monitor is powered when two battery packs are inserted.


  1.  Press the Menu key.
  2. Scroll down to Power Information.
  3. Navigate to Preferred battery drain mode.
  4.  Press the Select key or the right arrow key to cycle between Right battery first, Left battery first, or Both batteries.

When Both batteries is selected, the CS12x selectively drains the battery packs until they are at the same percentage, and then drains them evenly until they are both depleted.

The CS12x automatically switches to AC power when the AC adapter is connected.

Note: The AC adapter does not recharge battery packs.


The RIDGID® See­Snake® CS12x Wi-Fi enabled reporting monitor is the all-in-one solution for capturing media and delivering inspection results to your customers, all right from the job site.
