Charging Your Batteries
Ensure to fully charge your battery pack before using your
VivoTab in battery mode for extended periods. Remember that
the power adapter charges the battery pack as long as it is
plugged into an AC power source. Be aware that it takes much
longer to charge the battery pack when the VivoTab is in use.
IMPORTANT! Do not leave the VivoTab connected to the power
supply once it is fully charged. VivoTab is not designed to be left
connected to the power supply for extended periods of time.
Airplane Precautions
Contact your airline provider to learn about related inflight
services that can be used and restrictions that must be followed
when using your VivoTab in-flight.
IMPORTANT! You can send your VivoTab through x-ray
machines (used on items placed on conveyor belts), but do not
expose them from magnetic detectors and wands.
Safety Precautions
This VivoTab should only be used in enviroments with ambient
temperatures between 0°C (32°F) and 35°C (95°F).
Long time exposure to extremely high or low temperature
may quickly deplete and shorten the battery life. To ensure the
battery’s optimal performance, ensure that it is exposed within
the recommended environment temperature.
