Getting started
Battery
HTC Explorer uses a rechargeable battery. How long the battery can last before it
needs recharging depends on how you use HTC Explorer.The features and accessories
you use can affect battery life. For example, leaving your Bluetooth® connection
always on uses more power. Long phone calls and frequent web browsing use up a lot
of battery power. Also, consider your location: poor signal strength from your mobile
network and extreme temperature make the battery work harder.
Removing the battery
1. Take the back cover off.
2. With your thumb or finger, lift the battery from the battery compartment.
Inserting the battery
Please use only original batteries that came in the box or replacements that we
recommend.
1. Take the back cover off.
2. Insert the battery (with its exposed copper contacts first) into the battery
compartment.
14
Getting started
Charging the battery
Before you turn on and start using HTC Explorer, it is recommended that you charge
the battery.
§ Only the power adapter and USB cable provided in the box must be used to
charge the battery.
§ Do not remove the battery from HTC Explorer while you are charging it using the
power or car adapter.
1. Insert the small end of the USB cable into the USB connector.
2. Insert the other end of the USB cable into the power adapter.
3. Plug in the power adapter to an electrical outlet to start charging the battery.
When you charge the battery and HTC Explorer is on, the charging battery icon
is
displayed in the status bar. After the battery has been fully charged, the charging
battery icon turns to a full battery icon
. When the display is off, an animated icon
shows the charging status.
As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging when it overheats.
Switching the power on or off
Switching the power on

screen.
2. Press and hold the POWER button for a few seconds.
