Rechargeable Battery Pack Safety
• • Important Terms to Understand
“Battery life” means the time the equipment will run before it must be
recharged (sometimes this is also called “playtime” or “runtime”).
“Battery lifespan” means the total amount of time your battery will last
before it must be replaced.
• • Using the Equipment for the First Time
Be sure to fully charge (approx. 4 hours) the equipment when charging the
equipment for the first time.
• • Long-Term Storage & Maintenance
If you are putting away the battery for more than three months, it is
recommended that the battery should be stored separately and fully
charged, and get recharged every three months. If you store an uncharged
battery, it could fall into a deep worn-out state which would render it
incapable of holding any charge. Be sure to store the equipment and
battery at the proper temperature.
• • Battery Lifespan
The removable batteries for the equipment are designed to retain up to
80% of their original capacity after 300 charging and recharging cycles
when properly maintained. You may choose to purchase new battery when
it no longer holds the sufficient charge that meets your needs.
• • The lithium-ion battery is currently one of the most popular battery packs.
The best advantage is that it has no memory effect, so users needn’t worry
about that issue. Users can charge the battery anytime whether it is fully
drained or not. However, it’s recommended that users drain the battery until
the system shows power shortage warning and then recharge the battery.
Doing so is helpful to the reliability of your battery.
• • Don’t use the battery pack as a power supply for other equipment.
• • Don’t expose the battery to elevated heat situations such as under direct
sunlight in a car or near fire.
- ix -
Preface
• • Don’t disassemble the battery, or the battery leakage might cause skin
or eye injury. If electrolyte leaking from the battery contacts your skin or
clothing, immediately flush it with running water. If it splashes into eye,
rinse the eye at least 15 minutes with clean water and then seek medical
attention.
• • To avoid battery leakage or explosion, don’t discard the battery into water
or fire, or put them near a heat source such as a gas stove or an oven.
• • If you are putting away the battery for more than three months, it is
recommended that the battery should be stored separately and fully
charged, and get recharged every three months. If you store an uncharged
battery, it could fall into a deep worn-out state which would render it
incapable of holding any charge. Be sure to store your the equipment and
battery at the proper temperature.
• • Use the appropriate container to store the battery such as a paper box. Do
not allow a metal object to touch the terminal of the battery.
• • The battery consists of precise electrical components and cells. Do not
drop or hit the battery.
General Cleaning Tips
You may need the following precautions before you begin to clean the device.
When you clean any single part or component for the device, please thoroughly
read and understand the details below.
1. We strongly recommended that you should shut down the system before
you start to clean any single components.
2. When you need to clean the device, please rub it with a piece of dry cloth.
3. Be cautious of the tiny removable components when you use a vacuum
cleaner to absorb the dirt on the floor.
4. Never drop the components inside the device or get circuit board damp or
wet.
5. Be cautious of all kinds of cleaning solvents or chemicals when you
use it for the sake of cleaning. Some individuals may be allergic to the
ingredients.
6. Try not to put any food, drink or cigarette around the device.
-x-
Preface
Cleaning Tools
Although many companies have created products to help improve the process
of cleaning your devices and peripherals, users can also use household items
to clean their devices and peripherals. Below is a listing of items you may
need or want to use while cleaning your devices or peripherals. Keep in mind
that some components in your device may only be able to be cleaned using
a product designed for cleaning that component, if this is the case it will be
mentioned in the cleaning.
•
Cloth: A piece of cloth is the best tool to use when rubbing up a component.
Although paper towels or tissues can be used on most hardware as well,
we still recommend you to rub it with a piece of cloth.
•
Water or rubbing alcohol: You may moisten a piece of cloth a bit with some
water or rubbing alcohol and rub it on the device. Unknown solvents may
be harmful to the plastics parts.
•
Vacuum cleaner: Absorb the dust, dirt, hair, cigarette particles, and other
particles out of the device can be one of the best cleaning methods. Over
time, these items can restrict the airflow in a device and cause circuitry to
corrode.
•
Cotton swabs: Cotton swaps moistened with rubbing alcohol or water are
excellent tools for wiping hard to reach areas in your keyboard, mouse, and
other locations.
•
Foam swabs: Whenever possible, it is better to use lint-free swabs such as
foam swabs.
Recommended Cleaning Procedures
1. Close all application programs
2. Close operating software
3. Turn off power switch
4. Remove all peripherals
5. Pull out power cable

Preface
Disposing of the Computer
• • Within the European Union
EU-wide legislation, as implemented in each Member State,
requires that waste electrical and electronic products carrying
the mark (left) must be disposed of separately from normal
household waste.
This includes monitors and electrical accessories, such as signal cables or
power cords. When you need to dispose of your display products, please
follow the guidance of your local authority, or ask the shop where you
purchased the product, or if applicable, follow any agreements made
between yourself. The mark on electrical and electronic products only
applies to the current European Union Member States.
• • Outside the European Union
If you wish to dispose of used electrical and electronic products outside the
European Union, please contact your local authority so as to comply with
the correct disposal method.

When the battery is fully charged, the battery LED indicator lights solid
green.
When charging the battery, note that:
• • The battery will be fully charged within 3-4 hours (depending on the
capacity of the battery). When charging finishes, it’s recommended to
remove the adapter from the computer.
• • It’s recommended not to recharge intermittently, which means not to plug
and unplug the power adapter frequently in a short period of time.
• • Do not use the power adapter that is not made for your computer.
Supplying the computer with inappropriate voltage may cause harm to the
battery or, even worse, burn the computer.
• • The lithium-ion battery is currently one of the most popular battery pack.
The best advantage is that it has no memory effect, so users needn’t worry
about that issue. Users can charge the battery anytime whether it is fully
drained or not. However, it’s recommended that users drain the battery until
the system shows power shortage warning and then recharge the battery.
Doing so is helpful to the reliability of your battery.
•
Don’t use the battery pack as a power supply for other equipment.

A BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a special utility usually stored in the
ROM on the motherboard inside a computer. When you turn on the computer,
the BIOS is immediately activated. During the startup, it checks and loads
necessary information to ensure the computer can proceed with loading the
operating system. The BIOS Setup Utility is typically accessed with a special
key sequence, such as “Delete” or “Esc” key as soon as the computer is
powering up.
Once you have entered the BIOS, you can get some system information and
configure some hardware parameters. In most cases, there will be no need to
make adjustments to the BIOS. The default settings apply to most applications
and provide optimal performance.
Caution: If you need to make any change, be careful when making changes to
the BIOS. Incorrect settings can cause system boot failure or malfunction.
NOTE: For system stability and performance, this BIOS utility is constantly
improved. The screenshots demonstrated and descriptions hereinafter are for
reference only and may not exactly meet what is presented on-screen.
