Guidelines for safe battery usage
This computer uses a Lithium-ion battery. Do not use it in a humid, wet or
corrosive environment. Do not put, store or leave your product in or near a heat
source, in a high temperature location, in strong direct sunlight, in a microwave
oven or in a pressurized container, and do not expose it to temperatures over
60° C (140° F). Failure to follow these guidelines may cause the battery to leak
acid, become hot, explode or ignite and cause injury and/or damage. Do not
pierce, open or disassemble the battery. If the battery leaks and you come into
contact with the leaked fluids, rinse thoroughly with water and seek medical
attention immediately. For safety reasons, and to prolong the lifetime of the
battery, charging will not occur at temperatures below 0° C (32° F) or above
40° C (104° F).
The full performance of a new battery is achieved only after two or three
complete charge and discharge cycles. The battery can be charged and
discharged many times, but it will eventually wear out. When the normal use
and standby times are noticeably shorter than normal, contact your reseller. Use
only Acer approved batteries, and recharge your battery only with Acer
approved chargers designated for this device.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Never use any charger or battery
that is damaged. Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short-circuiting can
occur when a metallic object such as a coin, clip or pen causes direct connection
of the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of the battery. (These look like
metal strips on the battery.) This might happen, for example, when you carry a
spare battery in your pocket or purse. Short-circuiting the terminals may
damage the battery or the connecting object.
The capacity and lifetime of the battery will be reduced if the battery is left in
hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer or winter. Always try to
keep the battery between 15° C and 25° C (59° F and 77° F). A device with a hot
or cold battery may not work temporarily, even when the battery is fully
charged. Battery performance is especially limited in temperatures well below
freezing.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they may explode. Batteries may also
explode if damaged. Dispose of batteries according to local regulations. Please
recycle when possible. Do not dispose as household waste.
Wireless devices may be susceptible to interference from the battery, which
could affect performance.
Radio frequency interference
xi
Note: Please refer to www.acer.com for battery shipping
documents.
Replacing the battery pack
The computer uses Lithium-ion batteries. Replace the battery with the same
type as that which came bundled with your product. Use of another battery
may present a risk of fire or explosion.
Warning! Batteries may explode if not handled properly. Do not
disassemble or dispose of them in fire. Keep them away from
children. Follow local regulations when disposing of used
batteries.
Radio frequency interference
Warning! For safety reasons, turn off all wireless or radio
transmitting devices when using your computer under the
following conditions. These devices may include, but are not
limited to: wireless lan (WLAN), Bluetooth and/or 3G.
Remember to follow any special regulations in force in any area, and always
switch off your device when its use is prohibited or when it may cause
interference or danger. Use the device only in its normal operating positions.
This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used normally, and it and its
antenna are positioned at least 1.5 centimeters (5/8 inches) away from your
body (refer to the figure below). It should not contain metal and you should
position the device the above-stated distance from your body. To successfully
transmit data files or messages, this device requires a good quality connection
to the network. In some cases, transmission of data files or messages may be
delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure that the above separation
distance instructions are followed until the transmission is completed. Parts of
the device are magnetic. Metallic materials may be attracted to the device, and
persons with hearing aids should not hold the device to the ear with the
hearing aid. Do not place credit cards or other magnetic storage media near the
device, because information stored on them may be erased.
Medical devices
Operation of any radio transmitting equipment, including wireless phones, may
interfere with the functionality of inadequately protected medical devices.
xii
Information for your safety and comfort
Consult a physician or the manufacturer of the medical device to determine if
they are adequately shielded from external RF energy or if you have any
questions. Switch off your device in health care facilities when any regulations
posted in these areas instruct you to do so. Hospitals or health care facilities
may be using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF transmissions.
Pacemakers. Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum separation
of 15.3 centimeters (6 inches) be maintained between wireless devices and a
pacemaker to avoid potential interference with the pacemaker. These
recommendations are consistent with the independent research by and
recommendations of Wireless Technology Research. Persons with pacemakers
should do the following:
•
Always keep the device more than 15.3 centimeters (6 inches) from the
pacemaker
•
Not carry the device near your pacemaker when the device is switched on.
If you suspect interference, switch off your device, and move it.
Hearing aids. Some digital wireless devices may interfere with some hearing
aids. If interference occurs, consult your service provider.
Vehicles
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic
systems in motor vehicles such as electronic fuel injection systems, electronic
antiskid (antilock) braking systems, electronic speed control systems, and air bag
systems. For more information, check with the manufacturer, or its
representative, of your vehicle or any equipment that has been added. Only
qualified personnel should service the device, or install the device in a vehicle.
Faulty installation or service may be dangerous and may invalidate any
warranty that may apply to the device. Check regularly that all wireless
equipment in your vehicle is mounted and operating properly. Do not store or
carry flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the same compartment
as the device, its parts, or enhancements. For vehicles equipped with an air bag,
remember that air bags inflate with great force. Do not place objects, including
installed or portable wireless equipment in the area over the air bag or in the
air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly
installed, and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result. Using your device
while flying in aircraft is prohibited. Switch off your device before boarding an
aircraft. The use of wireless teledevices in an aircraft may be dangerous to the
operation of the aircraft, disrupt the wireless telephone network, and may be
illegal.
Potentially explosive environments
Switch off your device when in any area with a potentially explosive
atmosphere and obey all signs and instructions. Potentially explosive
Emergency calls
xiii
atmospheres include areas where you would normally be advised to turn off
your vehicle engine. Sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire
resulting in bodily injury or even death. Switch off the device at refueling points
such as near gas pumps at service stations. Observe restrictions on the use of
radio equipment in fuel depots, storage, and distribution areas; chemical plants;
or where blasting operations are in progress. Areas with a potentially explosive
atmosphere are often, but not always, clearly marked. They include below deck
on boats, chemical transfer or storage facilities, vehicles using liquefied
petroleum gas (such as propane or butane), and areas where the air contains
chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or metal powders. Do not switch the
computer on when wireless phone use is prohibited or when it may cause
interference or danger.
Emergency calls
Warning: You cannot make emergency calls through this device. To make an
emergency call you shall dial out through your mobile phone or other

This computer has a built-in power management unit that monitors system
activity. System activity refers to any activity involving one or more of the
following devices: keyboard, mouse, hard disk, peripherals connected to the
computer, and video memory. If no activity is detected for a period of time
(called an inactivity timeout), the computer stops some or all of these devices in
order to conserve energy.
This computer employs a power management scheme that supports the
advanced configuration and power interface (ACPI), which allows for maximum
power conservation and maximum performance at the same time. Windows
handles all power-saving chores for your computer.

Battery pack
Battery pack
The computer uses a battery pack that gives you long use between charges.
Battery pack characteristics
The battery pack has the following characteristics:
•
Employs current battery technology standards.
•
Delivers a battery-low warning.
The battery is recharged whenever you connect the computer to the AC
adapter. Your computer supports charge-in-use, enabling you to recharge the
battery while you continue to operate the computer. However, recharging with
the computer turned off results in a significantly faster charge time.
Maximizing the battery's life
Like all other batteries, your computer's battery will degrade over time. This
means that the battery's performance will diminish with time and use. To
maximize your battery's life, you are advised to adhere to the recommendations
set out below.
Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a conditioning process
that you should follow:
1
Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
2
Disconnect the AC adapter.
3
Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
4
Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
5
Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.
Charging the battery
31
Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't been
used for a long time.
Warning: Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0° C
(32° F) or above 45° C (113° F). Extreme temperatures may
adversely affect the battery pack.
By following the battery conditioning process you condition your battery to
accept the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this procedure will
prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery charge, and will also shorten
the effective lifespan of the battery.
In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by the
following usage patterns:
•
Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as described
above.
•
Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach the end
of its effective life. A standard computer battery has a life span of about
300 charges.
Charging the battery
Plug the AC adapter into the computer, and connect to a mains power outlet.
You can continue to operate your computer on AC power while your battery is
charging. However, charging the battery with the computer turned off results
in a significantly faster charge time.
Note: You are advised to charge the battery before retiring for
the day. Charging the battery overnight before traveling enables
you to start the next day with a fully-charged battery.
Checking the battery level
The Windows power meter indicates the current battery level. Rest the cursor
over the battery/power icon on the taskbar to see the battery's present charge
level.
English
Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and discharged
three times.
English
32
Battery pack
Battery low warning
When using battery power pay attention to the Windows power meter.
Warning: Connect the AC adapter as soon as possible after the
battery-low warning appears. Data will be lost if the battery
becomes fully depleted and the computer shuts down.
When the battery low warning appears, the recommended course of action
depends on your situation:
