The X26 ECD is shipped with the DPM battery pack pre-installed. To change the DPM:
- Shift the safety switch to the down (SAFE) position.
- Remove the TASER cartridge.
- To unload the DPM, depress the DPM release button and remove the DPM from the handle of the ECD.
- Wait approximately 5 seconds, then install the new DPM. Ensure that the DPM is fully inserted into the X26 ECD. Apply sufficient force to compress the foam gasket and allow the DPM battery pack to seat fully. Verify that the DPM release button pops out from the recessed position with an audible click. Failure to do so could result in a damaged X26 ECD or a loss of power during a deployment. When the DPM is installed, the X26 ECD will cycle through the boot-up sequence (see Viewing Status Information).
