AC Adapter
The AC adapter performs two functions:


It powers the computer from an external AC source.
It charges the computer battery.
The adapter automatically detects the AC line voltage (100V or 240V) and
adjusts accordingly.
The following are recommended when using the AC adapter:



Use a properly grounded AC outlet.
Use one AC outlet exclusively for the computer. Having other appliances
on the same line may cause interference.
Use a power strip with built-in surge protection.
Connecting the AC adapter:



Plug the AC cord to the adapter.
Plug the other end of the AC cord into the wall outlet. Make sure the green
LED on the adapter turns on.
Attach the DC plug into the power jack of the computer; turn the lock ring
clockwise to secure it.
AC Adapter Indicator:
The green LED indicates that AC power is ready.
Note:
 To ensure system stability, please connect your computer to an
external power source when operating at -20 ° C ambient
temperature.
Chapter Three - 27
Managing Power
Battery
The power source will automatically switch to battery when the external power
source (AC adapter or optional vehicle adapter) is disconnected.
Battery Low
When the battery is nearly exhausted, the computer gives the following
“Battery Low” warnings:
 Windows battery low warning (when operating system is Windows).
 The battery charger LED flashes.
Once the Battery Low warning occurs, please:
 Save and close the files you are currently working on.
 Plug in the AC adapter to recharge the battery.
Charging the Battery

You may check battery status from battery gauge in Windows. Click the
power/battery icon to reveal the battery gauge window.
Chapter Three - 28
Managing Power
Battery Power Saving Tips
The computer comes with an intelligent power-saving feature. You may extend
the battery life by:
 Setup power saving functions in Operating System Power Management
options (e.g. Windows Power Options).
 Lower the intensity of the display by brightness control.
 Use standby option when computer is temporarily not in use.
 Shut down the computer when it will not be for a long-time use.
Replacing Battery
When the battery is nearly exhausted, there are two ways to keep your
computer working. Connect the AC adapter and the power cord designed for
this notebook computer to start charging is one method; directly replace a
charged battery designed for this notebook computer may be the other one.
Note:
 Always remember to turn OFF the power before replacing the
battery.
Chapter Three - 29
Managing Power

Chapter Three - 30
Managing Power
Power Conservation
This computer consumes much less power than conventional computers.
However, power consumption may be reduced by configuring the Power
Management Setup properly.
It is recommended the power saving functions to be enabled even when not
running on battery power. Power Management will not degrade performance
while saving power.
Supporting ACPI
Your notebook computer supports ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power
Interface) for power management. With ACPI and an ACPI-compliant
operating system such as Windows, the feature will allow you to reduce the
power consumption for energy saving. By supporting ACPI, the AC adapter
LED and the Power indicator LED will show in different ways. The followings
are the detailed description.
Sleep:
AC adapter LED is ON (while connecting with power)
Power LED indicator is flashing; other LED indicators are OFF
Under Hibernation:
AC adapter LED is ON (while connecting with power)
Power LED indicator is OFF; other LED indicators are OFF
Shutdown:
AC adapter LED is ON (while connecting with power)
Power LED indicator is OFF; other LED indicators are OFF
