Can I let the badge equilibrate overnight so I can use it first thing next morning? Post date January 28, 2016 No, the badge is warranted to perform to specifications only if you follow the recommended usage procedure. Was this answer helpful ? Yes / No ← Should I remove the sensor from the outer protective cover before I use it? → I used the badge during my work shift but I can’t measure the exposure until tomorrow. How should I store the badge in the meantime?
