Battery Type: Li-ion
P. Rechargeable Battery Installation and Use
The player utilizes a set of long-life LI-ion batteries for a portable power
supply. LI-ion batteries feature high storage capacity and low level of
degradation. This means the LI-ion batteries do not have “Memory
Effect”and thus can be recharged safely regardless of whether the
battery is fully or only partially discharged. Please fully charge the battery prior to first use.
NOTE: When the DVD player is used with the battery as a power
source, ensure that the battery has been charged for at least eight
hours prior to connecting it to the DVD player.
If you plan not to use the battery for an extended period of time (one
week or longer), we recommend that you first fully charge the battery
and store it away properly. For longer periods of storage, please recharge the battery at least once every two months to maintain the
battery in optimum condition. Under no circumstances short the battery terminals, store the battery in a metal container, or leave the battery in a humid or damp environment. Ideally, store the battery in an
29
airtight container with desiccant or other dehumidifying agent. Each
full recharge takes approximately five-hours and one full charge can
provide power to the player for approximately 2 hours.
During recharge, the red indicator will stay on. Once fully recharged,
the red light will turn off. At this point you may remove the wall plug and
stop charging.
Precautions related to Battery Recharge:
1. Once the battery is fully discharged, immediately recharge (regardless of whether you plan to use battery or not) in order to maximize
battery life.
2. To charge the battery, please connect the power jack directly into
the DVD player and leave the POWER switch in the off position.
Using and Maintaining your Rechargeable Batteries
1. Please make sure you always use only the AC adapter included
with the player to recharge your batteries.
2.Recharge efficiency will degrade when environmental temperatures
drop below 50oF (10oC) or exceed 95oF (35oC).
3. Please remove battery from the player and store it properly if the
player is not to be used for long time. During this period , please
recharge the battery at least once two months to avoid irreparable
damage to the battery.

1. First, make sure the player is in “Stop”mode and that the AC power
supply has been disconnected.
