Precautions
The CF-25 was developed based on thorough research into the real-world portable computing environments. Exhaustive pursuit of usability and reliability under harsh conditions led to innovations such has
the magnesium alloy exterior, MCM (multichip module) technology based cool-running Pentium® processor, vibration damped hard disk drive and floppy disk drive, flexible internal connections, sealed LCD and
keyboard, dust proof hinges and the revolutionary "Shirato" ruggedized LCD screen mounting system.
The CF-25's outstanding engineering has been tested using the stiff MIL-STD- 810E (for vibration and
shock) and IP (for dust and water) based procedures.
As with any portable computer device precautions should be taken to avoid any damage. The following
usage and handling procedures are recommended.
Usage
Avoid Extreme Heat and Cold
Do not store or use the computer in locations
exposed to heat, direct sunlight, or extreme
cold.
Avoid moving the computer between locations
with large temperature differences.
Operation: 5 oC to 35 oC (41 oF to 95 oF)
Storage: -20 oC to 60 oC (-4 oF to 140 oF)
Avoid Direct Sunlight on the LCD Panel
The LCD panel should not be exposed to direct
sunlight or ultraviolet light.
Avoid Humidity Liquids and Dust
Do not store or use the computer in locations
exposed to high humidity, liquids (including
rain) or dust.
Prevent Shock
Avoid subjecting the computer to severe
vibrations or impact. Do not place the computer
inside a car trunk.
Avoid Radio Frequency Interference
Do not place the computer near a television or
radio receiver.
Handling
Avoid Magnetic Fields
Keep the computer away from magnets.
Avoid Stacking
Do not place heavy objects on top of the
computer.
Keep Small Objects Away
Do not insert paper clips or other small objects
into the computer.
Do Not Disassemble the Computer
Do not attempt to disassemble your computer.
Avoid Excessive Force to the LCD Panel
Do not apply excessive downward force on the display when
it is completely opened, especially when plugs and/or cables
are connected to the rear of the computer.
Carry the Computer Properly
Do not carry the computer without first turning off the
power.
Do not hold the computer by the LCD panel if the computer is open.
Do not move the computer while a floppy disk is inserted.
Maintenance
Surface of the LCD Panel
Soak a piece of gauze or soft cloth sufficiently in isopropyl
alcohol only, and wipe the panel gently. Using excessive
force may scratch the panel. Avoid wiping with a dry cloth,
since this can damage the surface of the polarizing plate.
Also, be sure not to use water and perfumes, as these liquids can dissolve the coloration of the polarizing plate.
Areas other than the Display
Gently wipe other areas using a soft cloth pre-soaked in
water or a neutral cleaner and wrung out thoroughly. Do
not use solvents like benzene and thinner, nor chemical
cloths.
Handling the AC Adapter
Do not twist or pull the AC power cord forcefully. Doing
so may damage the connections.
Use only the specified AC adapter (Factory Control Number: CF-AA1526) with your computer. Using an AC
adapter other than the one supplied might damage the battery and/or the computer.
When the DC plug is not connected to the computer, disconnect the AC cord from your AC wall outlet as well. If
the cord is kept connected, a very low level of power equivalent to approximately 1.5 watts will be consumed.
Problems such as sudden voltage drops/surges may arise
during periods of thunder and lighting. Since this could
adversely affect your computer, the uninterruptible power
supply is highly recommended.
Against Computer Viruses
Anti-virus software is not supplied. However, you should
obtain such software if you plan to transfer files actively or
to use the Internet.
Cables
Use of an interface cable longer than 3m (118.11 inches)
is not recommended.

13
Battery Power
A Shorter Than Expected Battery Drive Time
Your computer may experience a shallow charge-discharge cycle characterized by
computer operation for a short period of time followed by battery charging. Repetition of such cycles will decrease your battery’s operating time temporarily. The above
should be kept in mind if you decide to run the computer off the battery after it has
been running off the AC adapter for an extended period of time.
The computer automatically determines the need for battery refreshing. In such cases,
the screen will display a message reminding you to refresh the battery, after the computer has been started up. In this case, the battery indicator blinks in green to indicate the need for battery refreshing. Refreshing is commenced after any key is pressed.
Also, if you leave a fully charged battery for 2 to 4 weeks in temperatures above 35°C
(95°F), the battery’s operating time may decrease temporarily.
These conditions are not due to a fault in the battery. Normal performance can generally be restored by fully charging and then discharging the battery two or three
times in succession. In order to fully discharge the battery in a short period of time, a
battery refresh tool (BATTREF.COM) is provided ( P.17). Please note that the
battery operating time may vary drastically depending on the types of installed options.
NOTE
Replace the battery pack if the amount of time the computer can be operated on a full charge
drops to approximately one half of the normal duration.
Hints on How to Use Battery Pack
If you plan to leave the computer idle for an extended period of time (approximately
two months or more), first discharge the battery using the “refresh” method, next,
charge the battery pack until the charge level reaches 50%, then remove it from the
computer and store it in a cool, dry place. (Refer to the Operating Instructions for
information on removing the battery.)
Excessive discharging of the battery can occur if it is left in the computer for extended periods of disuse, possibly shortening its service life or causing damage to
the computer. (Note that the battery will not discharge if the AC adapter is left
connected, so it does not have to be taken out in such cases.)
14
Battery Power
Replacing
The battery pack is an item that at some point will require a replacement. If the
usage time of a battery pack becomes noticeably short, and repeated recharging does
not restore its performance, the battery pack should be replaced with a new one [part
number: CF-VZS250A(Ni-MH) or CF-VZS251(Li-Ion)].
Removal
Turn the computer off by pressing
and holding the power
switch in the ON position simultaneously.
Turn the computer over.
Use a screwdriver to loosen the two screws located
toward the front of the computer.
Remove the cover.
Slide the battery pack toward the outside edge to remove it.
Mounting
Drop a new battery pack into the pocket.
Slide the battery pack inward until it is firmly in place.
Replace the cover and tighten the two screws.
NOTE
Always switch the computer off and disconnect the AC adapter before replacing a battery
pack.
The battery pack may malfunction if it is exposed to strong shocks. Caution should be exercised.
15
Battery Power
Recharging
The battery is automatically charged when the AC adapter is plugged into a socket.
Rapid charging commences when the POWER switch is turned off. Normal charging
takes place when the POWER switch is turned on.
Charging will terminate (Battery indicator changes from orange to green) automatically when the battery is fully charged. In this state, it will remain fully charged as
long as the AC adapter is connected.
The AC adapter will become warm during charging or while in use; this is normal.
NOTE
If the battery pack is subjected to temperatures outside of the specified 5°C to 35°C (41°F to
95°F) range, charging will not commence. Under this circumstance, the battery indicator will
blink for 5 seconds. Charging will commence automatically once the temperature falls within
the allowable range. The battery temperature may rise as high as 60°C (140°F) during charging.
CAUTION
Always allow the battery to become completely discharged (low battery alarm sounds) before
recharging .
Since the battery is not pre-charged, be absolutely sure to charge these batteries before using
the computer for the first time. Charging commences automatically after the AC adapter is
connected.
A new battery or a battery that has not been used for a prolonged period of time will not be
fully charged after it has been charged/recharged only once.
It is recommended not to charge a battery that has not been completely discharged first (low
battery alarm sounds).
Do not charge a battery in any other computer or by using a recharger other than the one
specified.
When the duration of a battery’s operation has fallen by half or so, repeat the battery refresh
operation two or three times. If nothing happens even after this, the battery has reached the
end of its life span and should be replaced with a new one.
Installing and attempting to charge a battery pack that is already fully charged, or installing
and removing a battery pack several times in quick succession, can result in overcharging and
cause the battery to heat up. Such treatment can damage the battery pack.

Precautions
Care should be exercised with regard to the following in order to avoid the possibility of liquid leakage,
overheating, or bursting.
• Do not throw the battery pack into a fire or expose it to heat.
• Do not place the battery pack together with articles such as necklaces or hairpins when carrying or storing.
• Do not insert sharp objects into the battery pack, expose it to bumps or shocks, deform, disassemble, or
modify it.
• Do not short the positive (+) and negative (-) contacts.
• The battery pack is a rechargeable battery intended for use with the CF-25 series or the specified charger
(CF-VCB251A). Do not use it with a computer other than the one for which it was designed.
• Do not charge, use or leave the battery pack for extended periods where it will be exposed to direct sunlight,
in a hot place (in an automobile on a sunny day, for example), or in a cold place.
Do not touch the terminals on the battery pack. The battery pack may no longer function properly if the
contacts are dirty or damaged.
Do not expose the battery to water, or allow it to become wet.
Do not put the battery into a microwave oven or a pressurized chamber.
This computer prevents overcharging of the battery by recharging only when the remaining power is less than
approx. 95% of capacity.
Should the battery leak and some of the fluid gets into your eyes, do not rub your eyes. Immediately flush your
eyes with clear water and see a doctor for medical treatment as soon as possible.
Should the battery emit an abnormal odor, become hot to the touch, become discolored, change shape, or
become in any way different from normal, remove it from the unit or charger and discontinue use.
If the battery pack will not be used for a long period of time (a month or more), charge the battery pack until
the remaining battery level becomes 30% to 50% and store it in a cool, dry place.
NOTE
The battery pack may become warm during recharging or normal use. This is completely
normal.
Recharging will not commence outside of the allowable temperature range (0 °C to 35 °C
(32°F to 95 °F)). To allow the battery to charge, adjustments have to be made to the temperature. Once the allowable range requirement is satisfied, charging begins automatically. Note
that the recharging time varies based on the usage conditions. (Recharging takes longer than
usual when the temperature is 10 °C (48 °F) or less.)
If the temperature is low, the operating time is shortened. Therefore, please use the
computer within the allowable temperature range.
Although the battery has not begun to run down, the battery indicator may light up red or
emit a beep. This indicates a significant rise in the temperature of the battery pack. This
is typically caused by the fact that the battery pack has been delivering a high level of
power because the computer has been used with the display at the brightest setting and
with the power-saving function off. In order to protect the battery pack from temperature
rises, connect the AC adapter, set the power-saving function, and turn down the brightness of the display. If power discharge continues for 5 minutes or more while the battery
pack's temperature remains high, the computer automatically turns itself off.
When disabling the speaker using [System Setup] in the Setup Utility, the battery low
warning beep is also disabled.

Replacing the Battery Pack
When the charge provided by your battery pack is supplied for only a short period of time, even
after fully charging according to the instructions, it may be time to replace your battery pack.
The battery pack is a consumable item and therefore will require replacement [Ni-MH (CFVZS250A) or Li-Ion (CF-VZS251)].
1
Power off your computer (
p.9 )
Do not shut down using the suspend mode.
CAUTION
In the suspend mode, do not remove/change the battery pack. Removing the pack
in the suspend mode will erase your data and may damage the computer.
2
Loosen the screw, and then take off the cover
Turn your computer over. Then, loosen the screw with a screwdriver and remove the
cover.

NOTE
Besides the AC adapter (CF-AA1526) an optional battery charger (CF-VCB251A) is
available. This device is convenient in that it allows you to charge another battery pack
while you are using the computer.
Using the Ni-MH battery pack (CF-VZS250A or CF-VZS252)*
Battery refreshing involves power discharging and recharging (the latter only if the
AC adapter is connected.) Follow the instructions below to execute the battery refresh
tool after the battery becomes fully charged. The battery refreshing time ranges between three and twelve hours, depending on the state of the battery.
1 Restart the computer in the MS-DOS mode.
2 Type the following at the MS-DOS prompt.
battref
A verification message will appear. Press
. The computer is automatically
rebooted.
4 Press any key to start discharging the battery. Leave the computer on until the
power indicator goes off, even if the screen goes off.
5 When the power indicator goes off, battery charging commences automatically. If
the AC adapter is not connected, connect it to charge the battery fully.
When charging a completely discharged battery, ensure the proper refresh effect by
leaving the AC adapter plugged in until the battery indicator changes to green (which
indicates a complete recharge).The battery indicator becomes orange (charging mode)
quite quickly, but charging is not performed for the first one hour in order to increase
the charging efficiency.
