Chapter 3
Managing Power
Your Tablet PC operates either on external AC power or on internal battery
power.
This chapter tells you how you can effectively manage power. To maintain
optimal battery performance, it is important that you use the battery in the
proper way.
26
AC Adapter
CAUTION:
 The AC adapter is designed for use with your Tablet PC only. Connecting
the AC adapter to another device can damage the adapter.
 The AC power cord supplied with your Tablet PC is for use in the country
where you purchased your Tablet PC. If you plan to go overseas with the
Tablet PC, consult your dealer for the appropriate power cord.
 When you disconnect the AC adapter, disconnect from the electrical outlet
first and then from the Tablet PC. A reverse procedure may damage the
AC adapter or Tablet PC.
 When unplugging the connector, always hold the plug head. Never pull
on the cord.
The AC adapter serves as a converter from AC (Alternating Current) to DC
(Direct Current) power because your Tablet PC runs on DC power, but an
electrical outlet usually provides AC power. It also charges the battery pack
when connected to AC power.
The adapter operates on any voltage in the range of 100~240 V AC.
27
Battery Pack
Your Tablet PC has two battery packs. The battery pack is the internal power
source for the Tablet PC. It is rechargeable using the AC adapter.
NOTE: Care and maintenance information for the battery is provided in the
“Battery Pack Guidelines” section in Chapter 7.
Charging the Battery Pack
NOTE:
 Charging will not start if the battery’s temperature is outside the
allowed range, which is between 0 °C (32 °F) and 50 °C (122 °F). Once
the battery’s temperature meets the requirements, charging
automatically resumes.
 During charging, do not disconnect the AC adapter before the battery
has been fully charged; otherwise you will get a prematurely charged
battery.
 The battery has a high temperature protection mechanism which limits
the maximum charge of the battery to 80% of its total capacity in the
event of high temperature conditions. In such conditions, the battery
will be regarded as fully charged at 80% capacity.
 The battery level may automatically lessen due to the self-discharge
process, even when the battery pack is fully charged. This happens no
matter if the battery pack is installed in the Tablet PC.
To charge the battery pack, connect the AC adapter to the Tablet PC and an
electrical outlet. The Battery Charge Indicator (
) on the Tablet PC glows
amber to indicate that charging is in progress. You are advised to keep the
Tablet PC power off while the battery is being charged. When the battery is
fully charged, the Battery Charge Indicator glows green.
The two battery packs are charged in sequence (Battery 1 first and then
Battery 2). It takes approximately 5 hours to fully charge the two battery
packs when the power is off and approximately 6 hours when the power is on
(may need a longer charging time at lower temperatures).
CAUTION: After the Tablet PC has been fully recharged, do not immediately
disconnect and reconnect the AC adapter to charge it again. Doing so may
damage the battery.
28
Initializing the Battery Pack
You need to initialize a new battery pack before using it for the first time or
when the actual operating time of a battery pack is much less than expected.
Initializing is the process of fully charging, discharging, and then charging. It
can take several hours.
A software tool called “Gauge Reset” is provided for the purpose. Use the
G-Manager program and select the Battery tab to find the tool.
Checking the Battery Level
NOTE: Any battery level indication is an estimated result. The actual
operating time can be different from the estimated time, depending on
how you are using the Tablet PC.
The operating time of a fully charged battery pack depends on how you are
using the Tablet PC. When your applications often access peripherals, you
will experience a shorter operating time.
The two battery packs are discharged in parallel.
By Operating System
You can check the approximate battery level using the battery meter
function of the operating system. To read the battery level in Windows, tap
the battery icon on the taskbar.
By Gas Gauge
On the exterior side of the battery pack is a gas gauge for displaying the
estimated battery charge. When the battery pack is not installed in the
Tablet PC and you want to know the battery charge, you can press the
push-button to see the number of LEDs that light up. Each LED represents
20% charge.
Push-button
29
Battery Low Signals and Actions

– a low temperature will prolong the charging time as well as hasten
the discharge time.

When using battery power in an extremely low temperature
environment, you may experience shortened operating time and
incorrect battery level reading. This phenomenon comes from the
chemical characteristics of batteries. The appropriate operating
temperature for the battery is -10 °C ~ 50 °C (14 °F ~ 122 °F).

Do not leave the battery pack in storage for more than six months
without recharging it.
Touchscreen Guidelines

ENERGY STAR 6.1
ENERGY STAR® is a government program that offers businesses and consumers
energy-efficient solutions, making it easy to save money while protecting the
environment for future generations.
Please reference ENERGY STAR® related information
from http://www.energystar.gov.
As an ENERGY STAR® Partner, Getac Technology Corporation has determined
that this product meets the ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency.
An ENERGY STAR® qualified computer uses 70 % less electricity than computers
without enabled power management features.
Earning the ENERGY STAR®

When every home office is powered by equipment that has earned the
ENERGY STAR®, the change will keep over 289 billion pounds of
greenhouse gases out of the air.

If left inactive, ENERGY STAR® qualified computers enter a low-power
mode and may use 15 watts or less. New chip technologies make power
management features more reliable, dependable, and user-friendly than
even just a few years ago.

Spending a large portion of time in low-power mode not only saves
energy, but helps equipment run cooler and last longer.

Businesses that use ENERGY STAR® enabled office equipment may realize
additional savings on air conditioning and maintenance.
87

Over its lifetime, ENERGY STAR® qualified equipment in a single home
office (e.g., computer, monitor, printer, and fax) can save enough
electricity to light an entire home for more than 4 years.

Power management (“sleep settings”) on computers and monitors can
result in much savings annually.
Remember, saving energy prevents pollution
Because most computer equipment is left on 24 hours a day, power
management features are important for saving energy and are an easy way
to reduce air pollution. By using less energy, these products help lower
consumers’ utility bills, and prevent greenhouse gas emissions.
Getac Product Compliance
All Getac products with ENERGY STAR® logo comply with the ENERGY STAR®
standard, and the power management feature is enabled by default. As
recommended by the ENERGY STAR® program for optimal energy savings,
the computer is automatically set to sleep after 15 minutes (in battery mode)
and 30 minutes (in AC mode) of user inactivity. To wake up the computer,
press the power button.
If you want to configure power management settings such as inactivity time
and ways to initiate/end Sleep mode, go to Power Options by right-clicking
the battery icon on the Windows taskbar and then selecting Power Options
in the pop-up menu.
Please visit http://www.energystar.gov/powermanagement for detail
information on power management and its benefits to the environment.
