Workplace
A clean and moisture-free environment is preferred. Make room for air
circulation. Remember to avoid areas from:
z Sudden or extreme changes in temperature.
z Extreme heat.
z Strong electromagnetic fields (near television set, motor rotation area,
etc.).
z Dust or high humidity.
If it is necessary to work in a hostile environment, please regularly maintain
your computer by cleaning dust, water, and etc. to keep it in an optimal
condition.

Ruggedness
The computer is designed with rugged features such as vibration, shock, dust,
and rain/ water protection. However, it is still necessary to provide
appropriate protection while operating in harsh environments.
Since the handheld computer is passed MIL-STD-810G for the temperature,
vibration, shock, humidity and salt fog tests, and IP55 (I Model) or IP65 (M
model) for dust and water resistant tests, the handheld computer is therefore
a fully-rugged one.

Chapter Three- Managing Power
Charging Battery
An AC adapter, an AC power cord and a battery are required during battery
charging. These are standard accessories for your handheld computer. Do
always use the AC adapter, the AC power cord and the battery designed for
your handheld computer.
After unpacking your handheld computer, the first thing you need to do is
starting charging battery for the further use. Please connect your AC power
cord and AC adapter well with the plug and mount your battery well before
starting charging. We suggest you to charge the battery for about 8 hours at
the very beginning to give a full charge for your battery.
When the battery is nearly exhausted, please save and close the files you are
currently working on, and plug in the AC adapter to recharge the battery or
swap with a charged battery.
37
Checking the Battery Level
After a full charge of your battery, you are now able to check your battery
level by using the battery meter function of your OS. The battery icons which
show the conditions of the battery or where the power source comes from
may be different depending on the OS you install.
When the battery is nearly exhausted, the OS will show a warning icon. Also,
the Power Indicator LED will flash green when the battery level is under 15%.
Power Conservation
This computer consumes much less power than conventional computers.
However, power consumption may be reduced by configuring the Power
Management Setup properly.
It is recommended the power saving functions to be enabled even when not
running on battery power. Power Management will not degrade performance
while saving power.
38
Replacing Battery
When the battery is nearly exhausted, there are two ways to keep your
handheld computer working. Connect the AC adapter and the power cord
designed for this handheld computer to start charging is one method; directly
replace a charged battery designed for this handheld computer may be the
other one.
Note:
¾ Always remember to turn OFF the power before replacing the battery.
¾ You can change the battery in 30 seconds under standby mode;
otherwise, it may cause the data loss or malfunction of your handheld
computer.
Power Saving Tips

Turn OFF the LCD backlight when not using the handheld computer.
Lower the intensity of the LCD backlight.
Use well with Shut down, Standby and Hibernation.
Use well with the power management settings in your OS.
39
Supporting ACPI
Your handheld computer supports ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power
Interface) for power management. With ACPI and an ACPI-compliant
operating system such as Windows, the feature will allow you to reduce the
power consumption for energy saving. By supporting ACPI, the AC adapter
LED and the Power indicator LED will show in different ways. The followings
are the detailed description.
Standby:
Power LED indicator is ON; Other LED indicators are OFF
Under Hibernation:
All LED indicators are OFF
Shutdown:
All LED indicators are OFF

Only use an approved AC adapter designed for this computer.
LED?
There is a 3-prong grounded plug of the AC adapter. The third prong is
an important for safety. Do not neglect the importance for it. If you are not
able to access a compatible outlet, installing one by a qualified electrician
is necessary.
When unplugging the AC power cord, please be sure to disconnect it
from the plug head but from its wire.
Make sure the socket and any other extension cord you use can support
the total current load of all the connected devices.
Before cleaning the computer, make sure it is disconnected from any
external power supplies.

42
Only use the batteries designed for this computer. The wrong battery
may cause explosion, leakage or damage to the computer.
Do not remove the battery from the computer while it is powered on.
Do not continuously use a battery that has been dropped, or that appears
damaged (e.g. bent or twisted) in any way. Even if the computer is able to
continuously work with a damaged battery, the circuit damage may occur
and possibly cause fire.
