battery. To charge the battery,
1. Connect the small end of a USB cable to the Mini-USB port on the

1.1 Charging the Battery
Battery Precautions
• If the device is not used for a long period of time, the battery may
lose its charge. Please recharge the battery following the steps
described above in order to use your device.
• Rechargeable batteries are only to be charged under adult
supervision.
• Use only the supplied chargers to recharge the battery. Improperly
charging a battery may damage it or the device.
• Do not use an unauthorized battery. Use only the rechargeable
battery that came with your product or that is listed in the user’s
guide.
• Open the device only to insert or change the battery. All other
changes to this device are strictly prohibited and will invalidate the
warranty.
• Do not attempt to open the rechargeable battery or battery pack.
There are no user serviceable parts inside.
• To avoid damage caused by leakage of the battery fluid, replace the
battery or batteries once every two years regardless of how much
the device has been used during that time.
• Should a battery leak, the device may become damaged. Clean the
battery compartment immediately, avoiding contact with your skin.
• Keep batteries out of reach of small children. If swallowed, consult a
physician immediately.
• Leaving the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in
summer or winter conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of
the battery. Always try to keep the battery between 15°C and 25°C
(59°F and 77°F). A device with a hot or cold battery may not work
temporarily, even when the battery is fully charged.
