CAUTION
INSTALLATION – Desktop Charger
Warning
(1) Immediately discontinue use of the battery if, while using, charging, or
storing the battery, the battery emits an unusual smell, feels hot,
changes color, changes shape or appears abnormal in any other way.
Contact your authorized reseller or Panasonic if any of these
problems are observed.
(2) Do not place the batteries in microwave ovens, high-pressure containers,
or on induction cookware.
(3) In the event that the battery leaks and the fluid gets into one’s eye, do not
rub the eye. Rinse well with water and immediately seek medical care.
If left untreated the battery fluid could cause damage to the eye.

Caution
(1) If the device is to be used by small children, an adult should explain the
contents of the user’s manual to the children. The person should
provide adequate supervision to insure that the device is being used
as explained in the user’s manual.
Charger Stand
(2) When the battery is worn out, insulate the terminals with adhesive tape or
similar materials before disposal.
Danger
Be sure to follow the rules listed below while charging the battery. Failure to
do so may cause the battery to become hot, explode, or ignite and
cause serious injury.
· When charging the battery, either use a specified battery charger or
otherwise insure that the battery charging conditions specified by
Panasonic are met.
· Do not attach the batteries to a power supply plug or directly to a vehicle’s
cigarette lighter.
· Do not place the batteries in or near fire, or into direct sunlight. When the
battery becomes hot, the built-in safety equipment is activated,
preventing the battery from charging further, and overheating the
battery, which would destroy the safety equipment and can cause add
itional heating, breaking, or ignition of the battery.

INSTALLATION & OPERATION
Installation must only be conducted by a qualified technician
Installation:
1) Install the mounting bracket by using the screws
2) Slide the RX Set onto the bracket
3) Connect the main cable to the RX
4) Connect external antenna to the RX
Antenna Location:
1) Place external antenna on the windshield at the point
(Horizontal or Vertical) as shown in the following picture:
CAUTION
Warning
Do not continue charging the battery if it does not charge within the specified
charging time. Doing so may cause the battery to become hot,
explode, or ignite. There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced
by an incorrect type.
Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.
2. While Charging
Caution
The temperature range over which the battery can be charged is
10°C to 45°C. Charging the battery at temperatures outside of this
range may cause the battery to become hot or to break. Charging the
battery outside of this temperature range may also harm the
performance of the battery or reduce the battery’s life expectancy.
3. When Discharging the Battery
Danger
Do not discharge the battery using any device except for the specified device.
When the battery is used in devices aside from the specified device it
may damage the performance of the battery or reduce its life
expectancy, and if the device causes an abnormal current to flow, it
may cause the battery to become hot, explode, or ignite and cause
serious injury.
Operation:
1) Charge the TX for at least 3 hours
2) Switch the power on (located on the bottom of the TX)
3) Place the TX into the RX to synchronize
Caution
The temperature range over which the battery can be discharged is
-10°C to 45°C. Use of the battery outside of this temperature range
may damage the performance of the battery or may reduce its life
expectancy.
Note: Disconnect the battery or turn off the device when the TX is not in use
for long periods of time

1. When Using the Battery
Danger
(1) Misusing the battery may cause the battery to get hot, explode,
or ignite and cause serious injury. Be sure to follow the safety rules
listed below:
- Do not place the battery in fire or heat the battery.
- Do not install the battery backwards so that the polarity is reversed.
- Do not connect the positive terminal and the negative terminal of the
battery to each other with any metal object (such as a wire).
- Do not carry or store the batteries together with necklaces, hairpins, or
other metal objects.
- Do not pierce the battery with nails, strike the battery with a hammer, step
on the battery, or otherwise subject it to strong impacts or shocks.
- Do not solder directly onto the battery.
- Do not expose the battery to water or salt water, or allow the battery to get
wet.
(2) Do not disassemble or modify the battery. The battery contains safety
and protection devices which, if damaged, may cause the battery to
generate heat, explode or ignite.
(3) Do not place the battery on or near fires, stoves, or other high
temperature locations. Do not place the battery in direct sunlight, or
use/store the battery inside cars in hot weather. Doing so may cause
the battery to generate heat, explode, or ignite. Using the battery in
this manner may also result in a loss of performance and a shortened
life expectancy.
(4) Do not insert the battery into equipment designed to be hermetically
sealed. In some cases hydrogen or oxygen may be discharged from
the cell which may result in rupture, fire or explosion.
TIP 2: Preserving the Batteries
To maintain the optimum capacity of the pack, the unit has to be fully
discharged every 6 months. This can be accomplished by leaving the
unit on. Then recharge the battery to full capacity again.
