Battery Precautions
• If the device is not used for a long period of time, the battery may

described above in order to use your device.
• Rechargeable batteries are only to be charged under adult

• Do not use an unauthorized battery. Use only the rechargeable

battery compartment immediately, avoiding contact with your skin.
• Keep batteries out of reach of small children. If swallowed, consult a
