Battery Packs
Running the Tablet PC on Battery
Power
When the tablet PC is connected to external power, the tablet PC
runs on external power.
When a charged battery pack is in the tablet PC and the tablet PC
is not connected to external power, the tablet PC runs on battery
power.
The tablet PC switches between external power and battery power
according to the availability of an external power source. For
example, if the tablet PC contains a charged battery pack and is
running on external power supplied through the AC adapter, the
tablet PC will switch to battery power if the AC adapter is
disconnected from the tablet PC.
Whether to leave a battery pack in the tablet PC or in
storage depends on how you work. Keeping a battery pack in
the tablet PC enables the battery pack to charge whenever the
tablet PC is connected to external power and also protects your
work in case of a power outage.
On the other hand, a battery pack in the tablet PC slowly
discharges even while the tablet PC is turned off.
If you will not be using the tablet PC for one month or more,
removing the battery pack and storing it as described in “Storing
a Battery Pack,” later in this chapter, will prolong its life. For
more information about leaving your work, refer on this CD to
the Software Guide, “Power” chapter.

are using the tablet PC, but will discharge faster while the
tablet PC is in use.
■
If you plan to leave the tablet PC unattended during the
discharge, save your work before beginning the discharge
procedure.
■
If you use the tablet PC occasionally during the discharge
procedure and have set energy-saving timeouts, expect the
following performance from your system during the
discharge process:
❏
The monitor will not turn off automatically.
❏
Hard drive speed will not decrease automatically while
the tablet PC is idle.
❏

Battery Packs
Storing a Battery Pack
If the tablet PC will be unused and unplugged for more than
one month, remove and store the battery pack.
Ä
CAUTION: To prevent damage to a battery pack, do not expose it to
high temperatures for extended periods of time.
High temperatures accelerate the self-discharge rate of a stored
battery pack. To prolong the charge of a stored battery pack, place
it in a cool, dry place.
Use the following table to estimate how long you can safely store
a battery pack. The storage times provided are based on a battery
pack that contains 50 percent of a full charge. A fully charged
battery pack can be safely stored for longer; a battery pack
containing a low charge can be safely stored for less time.
Calibrate a battery pack that has been stored for one month or
more before using it.

Battery Packs
Disposing of a Used Battery Pack
Å
WARNING: There is a risk of fire and chemical burn if a battery pack
is handled improperly. Do not disassemble, crush, or puncture a battery
pack or short the contacts on a battery pack. Do not expose a battery
pack to temperatures higher than 60° C (140° F), or dispose of a
battery pack in water or fire.
When a battery pack has reached the end of its useful life, do not
dispose of it in general household waste.
■
In North America, you can dispose of battery packs by using
the HP battery recycling program. This program provides you
with a postage-paid battery pack mailer preaddressed to a
reclamation facility where the metals are recycled. For more
information, call the telephone number listed for your
location in the Worldwide Telephone Numbers booklet,
included in English only with the tablet PC.
■
In Europe, dispose of or recycle battery packs by using the
public collection system or by returning them to HP, your
authorized HP partners, or their agents.
■
In other regions, refer to the Worldwide Telephone Numbers
booklet, included in English only with the tablet PC, to
contact an HP-authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider
and request information about battery pack disposal.
For more information about battery pack precautions and disposal
and the complete text of governmental agency notices, refer on
this CD to the Regulatory and Safety Notices guide.

Drives
Adding a Drive to the System
Drives enable you to store and access data.
A standard removable drive can be added to the system by
inserting the drive into the MultiBay of an optional External
MultiBay or Docking Station. A USB drive can be added by
connecting the drive to a USB connector on the tablet PC or on
the Docking Station. Hard drive functions can also be added with
a PC Card.
For information about connecting a USB drive, see Chapter 8,
“External Device Connections.” For information about PC Cards,
see Chapter 9, “Additional Hardware Options.” For general
information about inserting and removing drives from an External
MultiBay or Docking Station, refer to the documentation
included with the device.
This chapter provides specific information about using drives in
the tablet PC system.
The tablet PC hard drive bay supports only a 9.5-mm system hard
drive. A MultiBay in an External MultiBay or Docking Station
supports an additional 9.5-mm optional hard drive (inserted in
a MultiBay Hard Drive Adapter) and the following 12.7-mm
standard removable drives:

Understanding Drive Terms
Terms for Types of Drives
A hard drive is used for the permanent storage of data files and of
software such as system files, applications, and drivers. The hard
drive in the hard drive bay is the system hard drive, sometimes
called the local disk. The system hard drive can be replaced, but
cannot be used in a MultiBay. A hard drive is sometimes called a
hard disk drive or HDD.
Diskette drives are often used to store or transport data. The
tablet PC can read or write to any MultiBay diskette drive. A
diskette drive is sometimes called a floppy disk drive, floppy
drive, or FDD.
Optical drives include CD and DVD drives. Optical drives are
used to store or transport data and to play music and movies.
DVD media have higher capacities than CD media. The
tablet PC can read or write to optical drives as described in the
following table.

Caring for Drives
Drives are fragile system components that must be handled with
care. Observe the following cautions when handling any drive.
Ä
CAUTION: To prevent damage to the tablet PC or a drive and loss
of work:
■ Do not remove the system hard drive except for repair or
replacement. For instructions, see Chapter 10, “Maintenance,
Shipping and Travel.”
■ Electrostatic discharge can damage electronic components.
To prevent electrostatic damage to the tablet PC or a drive, follow
these 2 precautions: (1) Discharge yourself from static electricity
before handling a drive by touching a grounded metal object and
(2) Avoid touching the connectors on a drive. For more information
about preventing electrostatic damage, refer on this CD to the
Regulatory and Safety Notices guide.
■ Excessive force can damage drive connectors. When you insert a
drive, use only enough force to seat the drive.
■ Handle a drive carefully. Do not drop it.
■ Avoid exposing a hard drive or a diskette to devices with magnetic
fields. Products with magnetic fields include video and audio tape
erasure products, monitors, and speakers. Security devices with
magnetic fields include airport walk-through devices and security
wands. The airport security devices that check carry-on luggage,
usually while it is placed on a conveyor belt, use x-rays instead of
magnetism and will not damage a hard drive or a diskette.
■ Do not spray a drive with cleaners.
■ Avoid exposing a drive to liquids or temperature extremes.
■ If you mail a drive, ship it in packaging that protects it from shock,
vibration, temperature, and humidity. Label the package
“FRAGILE.”
