Information concerning the battery pack
The battery pack includes flammable objects such as organic solvent. Mishandling may cause the battery to rupture producing flames or
extreme heat, deteriorate, or cause other forms of damage to the
battery. Please observe the following prohibitive matters.
•
•
•
•
•
Do not disassemble or reconstruct battery!
The battery pack has a safety function and protection circuit to
avoid danger. If they suffer serious damage, the battery may
generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame.
Do not short-circuit the battery!
Do not join the + and – terminals using any form of metal (such
as a paper clip or wire). Do not carry or store the battery pack
in containers holding metal objects (such as wires, chainnecklace or hairpins). If the battery pack is short-circuited,
excessive current will flow and the battery may generate heat
or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame. It will also cause metal
objects to heat up.
Do not incinerate or apply heat to the battery!
If the insulator is melted, the gas release vent or safety function
is damaged, or the electrolyte is ignited, the battery may
generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame.
Do not leave the battery near fires, stoves, or other heat
generators (areas reaching over 80°C/ 176°F)!
If the polymer separator is melted due to high temperature,
an internal short-circuit may occur in the individual cells and
the battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into
flame. Avoid immersing the battery in water or getting it wet by
other means!
If the battery becomes wet, wipe it off with a dry towel before
use. If the battery’s protection circuit is damaged, the battery
may charge at extreme current (or voltage) and an abnormal
chemical reaction may occur. The battery may generate heat or
smoke, rupture, or burst into flame.
iv
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not charge the battery near fires or under direct
sunlight!
If the battery’s protection circuit is damaged, the battery may
charge at extreme current (or voltage) and an abnormal
chemical reaction may occur. The battery may generate heat or
smoke, rupture, or burst into flame.
Use only the specified charger and observe charging
requirements!
If the battery is charged in unspecified conditions (under high
temperature over the regulated value, excessive high voltage
or current over regulated value, or with a remodelled charger),
it may overcharge or an abnormal chemical reaction may occur.
The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into
flame.
Do not pierce the battery with any object, strike it with an
instrument, or step on it!
This may break or deform the battery, causing a short-circuit.
The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into
flame.
Do not jar or throw the battery!
An impact may cause the battery to leak, generate heat
or smoke, rupture, and/or burst into flame. If the battery’s
protection circuit is damaged, the battery may charge at an
abnormal current (or voltage), and an abnormal chemical
reaction may occur.
Do not use the battery pack if it is damaged in any way!
The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into
flame.
Do not solder directly onto the battery!
If the insulator is melted or the gas release vent or safety
function is damaged, the battery may generate heat or smoke,
rupture, or burst into flame.
Do not reverse the battery polarity (and terminals)!
When charging a reversed battery, an abnormal chemical
reaction may occur. In some cases, an unexpected large
amount of current may flow upon discharging. The battery may
generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not reverse-charge or reverse-connect the battery!
The battery pack has positive and negative poles. If the battery
pack does not smoothly connect with a charger or operating
equipment, do not force it; check the polarity of the battery. If
the battery pack is reverse-connected to the charger, it will be
reverse-charged and an abnormal chemical reaction may occur.
The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into
flame.
Do not touch a ruptured and leaking battery!
If the electrolyte liquid from the battery gets into your eyes,
wash your eyes out with fresh water as soon as possible,
without rubbing your eyes. Go to the hospital immediately. If
left untreated, it may cause eye-problems.
Do not charge the battery for longer than the specified
time!
If the battery pack has not finished charging even after the
regulated time has passed, stop it. The battery may generate
heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into flame.
Do not place the battery pack into a microwave or high
pressure container!
The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or burst into
flame.
Keep ruptured and leaking battery packs away from fire!
If the battery pack is leaking (or the battery emits a bad odor),
immediately remove it from flammable areas. Electrolyte
leaking from battery can easily catch on fire and may cause the
battery to generate smoke or burst into flame.
Do not use an abnormal battery!
If the battery pack emits a bad odor, appears to have different
coloring, is deformed, or seems abnormal for any other reason,
remove it from the charger or operating equipment and do not
use it. The battery may generate heat or smoke, rupture, or
burst into flame.

When turning on the transceiver power and when changing the
channel, an audio voice will announce the selected channel
and the channel’s VOX and scrambler settings.
Quiet Talk (QT)/ Digital Quiet Talk (DQT)
Your dealer may have programmed QT or DQT signaling on
your transceiver channels. A QT tone/ DQT code is a
sub-audible tone/code which allows you to ignore (not hear)
calls from other parties who are using the same channel.
Stun Code
This function is used when a transceiver is stolen or lost.
When the transceiver receives a call containing a stun code,
the transceiver becomes disabled. The stun code is cancelled
when the transceiver receives a call with a revive code.
Optional Signaling
Your dealer may also program several types of optional
signaling for your transceiver channels.
5-tone Signaling: 5-tone Signaling opens the squelch only when
your transceiver receives a call containing matching 5 tones
{page 16}.
DTMF Signaling: DTMF Signaling opens the squelch only
when the transceiver receives a call containing a matching
DTMF code.
FleetSync Signaling: Refer to “SELCALL (SELECTIVE
CALLING)” on page 15.
