Before turning the unit on, make sure that the tablet is either connected to AC power or the battery.
AC Power
The ALGIZ 10X power supply is comprised of two parts, the power adapter and the battery. The power
adapter converts AC power from a wall outlet to the DC power required by the ALGIZ 10X. Your ALGIZ 10X
comes with a universal AC-DC adapter. That means that you may connect the power cord to any 100V-120V
as well as 220V-240V outlets without using power converters. Different countries may require an adapter to
be used to connect the supplied standard AC power cord to a different standard.

Charging the Battery
When the power adapter is plugged in, the battery automatically recharges regardless of whether your tablet
PC is in the ON or OFF mode. It takes a couple of hours for the battery to be fully charged when the power is
OFF and twice as long when the tablet PC is in use. When the charger LED indicator lights up orange,
charging is required. The battery is charging when the red LED is permanently on. When the LED turns OFF,
the battery pack is fully charged.
Power Supply
