FCC and Interference
Information
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation
is subject to the following two conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference; and
• This device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the
limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment on and off, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference with one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the
antenna for the radio or television that is “receiving” the
interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the
telecommunications equipment and the receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on
a circuit different from that to which the receiving antenna is
connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please
consult your dealer or an experienced radio/television technician
for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications
Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, “How to Identify
and Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is
5
1041b80a.book Page 6 Friday, January 31, 2003 9:42 AM
available from the U.S. Government Printing Office,
Washington, D.C. 20402. Please specify stock number 004-00000345-4 when ordering copies.
The FCC requires this product to be serviced only by Motorola or
its authorized service agents. Changes or modifications not
expressly approved by Motorola could void not only the user's
authority to operate the equipment, but also the limited warranty.

Battery Charger Safety Instructions
Save these Instructions
1. Do not expose the charger to rain or snow.
2. Do not operate or disassemble the charger if it has received
a sharp blow, or has been dropped or damaged in any way.
3. Never alter the AC cord or plug provided with the unit. If plug
will not fit the outlet, have proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician. An improper condition can result in a risk of

than the cord when disconnecting charger from AC
receptacle.
5. To reduce the risk of electric shock, unplug the charger from
the outlet before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
6. Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Motorola
may result in a risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury.

stepped on, tripped over, or subjected to damage or stress.
8. An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely
necessary. Use of an improper extension cord could result in
a risk of fire and/ or electric shock. If an extension cord must
be used, make sure that:
• The pins on the plug of the extension cord are the same
number, size and shape as those on the plug of the
charger.
• The extension cord is properly wired and in good
electrical condition.
• The cord size is 18 AWG for lengths up to 100 feet, and
16 AWG for lengths up to 150 feet.
9. The supply cord of this charger cannot be replaced. If the

Battery Performance
• Always use Motorola Original batteries and battery
chargers. The warranty does not cover damage
caused from using non-Motorola batteries and/or
battery chargers.
• Some batteries perform best after several charge and
discharge cycles.
• New batteries or batteries that have been stored for
long periods of time may require a longer charge time.
• Maintain the battery at or near room temperature
when charging.
• Do not expose batteries to temperatures below –10°C
(14°F) or above 45°C (113°F).
13
1041b80a.book Page 14 Friday, January 31, 2003 9:42 AM
Getting Started
• When you do not intend to use the battery for a while,
store it uncharged in a cool, dark, dry place, such as a
refrigerator.
14
• Over extended periods of time, batteries gradually
wear down and require longer charging times. This is
normal. If you charge your battery regularly and notice
a decrease in usage time or an increase in charging
time, then it is probably time to purchase a new
battery.
The rechargeable batteries that power this product
must be disposed of properly and may need to be
recycled. Refer to your battery’s label for battery
type. Contact your local recycling center for proper
disposal methods. Never dispose of batteries in a fire
because they may explode.
