DANGER
 Use the rechargeable battery only for its intended purpose. The
scanner and rechargeable battery are designed to function
exclusively with each other. Do not insert a different rechargeable
battery into the scanner or insert the rechargeable battery into a
different scanner, otherwise fire or damage may result.
 To charge the rechargeable battery, insert the rechargeable
battery into the scanner, and connect your scanner with your
computer using the supplied Micro USB cable.
 DO NOT charge the rechargeable battery near a fire or in direct
sunlight. This could activate the protection circuitry, which is
designed to prevent danger from high heat. Activation of the
protection circuitry could cause charging to stop, charging to
occur with excessive current or voltage if the protection circuitry
fails, or an abnormal chemical reaction within the battery.
 DO NOT allow wires or other metal objects to come into contact
with the terminals of the rechargeable battery. Do not carry or
store the rechargeable battery with metal objects such as
necklaces or hairpins. This could cause an electrical short, and
could cause metal objects to overheat, such as wires, necklaces,
or hairpins to overheat.
 DO NOT use or leave the rechargeable battery near fire, heaters,
or other high temperature (above 176 °F/80 °C) locations.
 DO NOT allow the rechargeable battery to come into contact with
or to be immersed in water.
 DO NOT use in corrosive environments, such as areas where
salty air, salt water, acids, alkalis, corrosive gases, chemicals, or
any corrosive liquid are present.
 DO NOT use the rechargeable battery if it is damaged or leaking.

If the rechargeable battery leaks, immediately discontinue use of
the scanner, unplug the cable, and isolate the scanner by putting
it in a bag. Do not touch the electrolyte. If electrolyte gets in the
eyes, do not rub the eyes. Immediately rinse liberally with tap
water or other clean water and seek the advice of a medical
professional. If left alone, the electrolyte could cause eye
damage. If electrolyte contacts your skin or clothing, immediately
rinse them with water.
 DO NOT put the rechargeable battery, or a scanner with the
rechargeable battery installed, into a microwave oven or a high
pressure container.
 DO NOT leave the rechargeable battery with out of power in the
main unit for a long period of time. This could shorten the life of
the rechargeable battery or lead to an electrical short.

Rechargeable Li-ion battery
• At the time of purchase, the rechargeable Li-ion battery is slightly
charged so that the operation of the scanner can be verified; however,
the rechargeable Li-ion battery should be fully charged via the USB port
before the scanner is used.
• If the scanner will not be used for a long period of time, remove the
rechargeable Li-ion battery from the scanner, and then store it in a
location where it is not exposed to static electricity, high humidity, or
high temperatures (temperatures between 59 °F/15 °C and
77 °F/25 °C and 40 to 60% humidity are recommended). In order to
maintain the efficiency and life of the Li-ion rechargeable battery,
charge it at least every six months.
• If you notice anything unusual about the rechargeable Li-ion battery the
first time it is used, for example overheating or rust, DO NOT continue
to use the battery. Contact Brother customer service.
Tips on using the rechargeable Li-ion
battery
• Charge the rechargeable Li-ion battery before use. Do not use it before
it is charged.
• The rechargeable Li-ion battery charging can take place in 41~95 °F
(5~35 °C) environments. Charge the rechargeable Li-ion battery in an
environment in this temperature range. If the surrounding temperature
is out of this range, the rechargeable Li-ion battery will not be charged,
and the battery indicator will remain lit.
• If the scanner is used when both the rechargeable Li-ion battery is
installed and the scanner is connected to your computer, the battery
indicator may turn off and charging may stop even if the rechargeable
Li-ion battery has not been fully charged.
Rechargeable Li-ion battery
characteristics
Understanding the properties of the rechargeable Li-ion battery will allow you
to optimize its usage.
• Using or storing the rechargeable Li-ion battery in a location exposed
to high or low temperatures may accelerate its deterioration. In
particular, using a rechargeable Li-ion battery with a high charge (90%
or more) in a location exposed to high temperatures will considerably
accelerate battery deterioration.
• Using the scanner while the rechargeable Li-ion battery is installed and
charging may accelerate the battery’s deterioration. If using the
scanner when the rechargeable Li-ion battery is installed, disconnect
the USB cable.
• If the scanner will not be used for longer than one month, remove the
rechargeable Li-ion battery from the scanner when its charge is 50% or
less, and then store the battery in a cool place away from direct
sunlight.
• If the rechargeable Li-ion battery will not be used for a long period
of time, we recommend charging it every 6 months.
• If you touch a part of the scanner while the Li-ion battery is charging,
that part of the scanner may feel warm. This is normal, and the scanner
may be used safely. If the scanner becomes extremely hot,
discontinue use.
