Product Care
Battery Information
Battery Precautions
Your device is designed to be light,
compact, and durable. However, it is an
electronic device and must be treated
carefully. Putting unnecessary pressure
on it or striking the device against other
objects can cause damage.
In order to avoid damage to your
device, please:
• Keep the device in the included slip
case when you are not using it. This
will help protect the screen from
scratches.
• Do not drop, crush, bend, or apply
excessive force to the device.
• Do not expose your device to
moisture, extreme or prolonged
heat, cold, humidity, or other adverse
conditions. Avoid storing it in damp,
humid, or wet places. The device is
not waterproof.
• Clean the device by spraying a mild
glass cleaner onto a cloth and wiping
its surface. Do not spray liquids
directly on your device.
• Should the device’s display glass
break, properly dispose of the
product avoiding contact with
your skin, then wash your hands
immediately.
• Please keep screen protectors and
plastic bags away from babies
and children to avoid danger of
suffocation.
• 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.
• Open the device only to insert
or change the battery. All other
changes to this device are strictly
prohibited and will invalidate the
warranty.
• 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.
• Do not dispose of batteries in a
fire as they may explode. Batteries
may also explode if damaged.
Dispose of batteries according to
