Always ensure that no live cartridges are loaded in a CEW before cleaning or maintenance.
Important: Before cleaning any CEW, it is highly recommended that you perform a full download.
Basic Cleaning for All CEWs
It is recommended to periodically clean the outside surface area of the CEW. Use a PDI Sani-Cloth wipe for this.
CEWs that are routinely exposed to salt air should be thoroughly cleaned on a frequent basis.

Basic Cleaning of the X26P and X2 CEWs
The X26P and X2 CEWs have a gasket inside the battery well that needs to be kept clean. When cleaning a CEW, take care to not damage the contacts inside the battery well.
Use an isopropyl alcohol (IPA) swab to clean the internal battery contacts on the unit.
Gently brush the contact pins with the swab. DO NOT push the swab stick into the unit with any pressure. Doing so may damage the contacts.
Cleaning the X2 Cartridge Contacts
The IPA swab is shaped ideally for cleaning the cartridge bay contacts of the X2 CEW.
Do not attempt to insert any other foreign objects into the cartridge bays or damage to the contacts may occur.
Insert the swab into the bottom of the cartridge bay – laying it flat and sliding it back until it reaches inside the contact points.
Perform this procedure for both cartridge bays.
Cleaning the Performance Power Magazine (PPM) Contacts
The battery contacts on CEWs should be cleaned periodically for the highest performance of the CEW and its power source. You may see a small amount of black (carbon) or white (oxidation) buildup on the contacts. In addition to carbon buildup or oxidation, small pieces of dirt or lint can also buildup on the contacts and possibly affect performance. Using the swab will help clean this material off and improve contact between the battery and the CEW.
Use the IPA swab to clean the contacts on the PPM.
Cleaning CEWs with Compressed Air
Clean CEWs periodically with canned air to remove foreign material like dust and dirt from the contacts.
Use canned compressed air only. Do not use an air compressor as this may force moisture into the device.
