The CID is a display on the back of the CEW that provides information about the CEW. When the safety switch is shifted into the up (ARMED) position, the CID will display the cartridge bays and battery status.
|The battery is fully charged.|
|The battery is not fully charged, but still serviceable.|
|The battery needs charging. This icon will blink.|
|Battery Error. If you see a blinking battery icon with an X through it, this indicates that the CEW did not recognize the battery correctly. Remove the power pack and reinsert it. If the error is still present, try another power pack. If the icon still displays, the CEW should be serviced.|

The CID below shows the CEW is in the Function Test mode after the TASER operator shifted the safety switch to the up (ARMED) position. The colors are reversed in Function Test mode—the background is yellow, and the loaded cartridges are black.
The CID below shows a CEW synchronizing its logs to the battery pack. Do not remove the battery pack from the CEW until the hourglass icon disappears.
If there are both a battery error and a CEW error at the same time, the CID will alternate between the two icons below:
