plastic enclosure. Cold temperatures can also shorten the life of the Drive by
damaging the battery, causing the plastic enclosure to crack, or causing moisture to
condense on or inside the device.
Keep the Media Drive dry. Water or other liquids can damage it. In addition, high
humidity can cause condensation to form. If a Media Drive gets wet, turn it off, place it
in a low-humidity environment, and allow it to completely dry.

damaged or cease to work.
Do not attempt to open or modify a Media Drive. It contains no internal serviceable
parts. Attempting to modify a Media Drive can damage the device and cause it to

Cleaning
Before cleaning a Media Drive, disconnect it from any USB port or cable, turn off WiFi, and remove the memory card from the card slot. If the outside of the Media Drive
is soiled, use a cloth that has been slightly dampened with water to clean the outside.
Do not allow water to enter the Media Drive around the power button, USB connector,
or card slot.
If foreign material enters the Media Drive through the card slot, attempt to free it by
lightly shaking the Drive with the card slot facing down. If this does not work, try using
a can of compressed air.
Maintenance and Storage

Note that while the lithium does not have any memory effect, proper care is required
for the best usage.

For proper maintenance of the battery, it is best to periodically let the Media Drive
discharge. We do not recommended keeping the Media Drive plugged in. For the
best battery life, we recommend charging and discharging the Media Drive battery at
