MobileDemand is not responsible for unusual operation, maintenance, or unforeseen conditions that lead to data loss
or destruction of the unit.
• Use the original battery to avoid possible explosions.
• Avoid extreme shock, such as dropping the xTablet T1550 from extreme heights.
• Do not operate the T1150 in extreme temperatures. Only operate the unit in temperatures ranging from 14°F
to +122°F (-10°C to +50°C) and only store the unit in temperatures from -4°F to +140°F (-20°C to +60°C).
• Avoid wet or dirty surroundings and minimize any exposure to direct sun.
• Stay away from environments with high magnetic or electrical discharge.
• If the T1150 submerged under water, immediately check the interface after letting it dry thoroughly.
• Do not use any harsh chemical composition cleaners to wipe the unit.
• Avoid any corrosion and humidity damage.
• If you need to clean the T1150, use a dry soft cloth or a tissue wipe. You can use mild liquid cleansers such as
Windex or Formula 409. Avoid getting liquid into connectors.
• Back up your data on a regular basis.
• Do not dismantle the T1150 or you may risk losing coverage via the MobileDemand warranty.
• MobileDemand does support the use of products from the 3G Dongle brand. Representatives from 3GDongle

When using the xTablet T1150, please refer to the following illustrations for proper use.
Managing the Power Supply
Use basic safety precautions when using an AC/DC adapter and battery power. Make sure your T1150 is connected to
an AC power source via the AC adapter before you turn it on for the first time. If the T1150 powers down because of
low battery power, it could cause a system failure. Note the following do’s and don’ts of an AC/DC adapter:
• Use the adapter that came with the T1150
• Be aware of heat coming from the AC/DC adapter when it’s in use
• Leave the AC power cord plugged in after you power down the T1150 if you plan to leave it unused for longer
than a few days or months.
To attach the T1150 to a power source
• Plug the DC end of the adapter into the DC-in jack on the T1150.
• Plug the adapter into the power outlet.
• When done charging, remove the adapter plug from the wall, then the DC connector from the T1150.
Charging the T1150 via an AC adapter.
Recycling the Battery
Please observe local laws and regulations when it comes to recycling the xTablet T1150 and its battery pack.
Conserving Battery Power
Efficient battery power is critical when maintaining a normal operation. If not managed well, the saved data and
customized settings may be lost.
To optimize battery life and avoid sudden losses of power
Suspend system operation if the system will be idle for a while
Shorten the suspend time period
Turn off the system if not using the T1150 for longer than several hours
Disable unnecessary settings or remove idle peripherals
Connect an AD/DC adapter to the system whenever possible
Charging the Battery Pack
The battery pack can recharge when you connect the T1150 to AC power. However, you should observe the following
before you do so:
• You can use the system, suspend system operation, or power down and turn off the system without
interrupting the charging process.
• Because the battery pack uses Lithium-Ion Polymer battery cells with no “memory effect,” you do not need to
discharge the battery before recharging. However, you should consume the battery power completely at least
once a month to optimize the battery life.
• The applications used will determine the actual charging time.
Safety Guidelines
• There is danger of explosion if you replace the battery incorrectly. You should only replace the battery
with the same or equivalent type as recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used batteries according
to manufacturer instructions. You can purchase additional batteries through MobileDemand at: www.
• Always keep the T1150 and its battery away from excessive moisture and extreme temperatures.
• Always unplug the AC power cord before installing any module to the T1150.
Note: Do not charge the battery when temperatures fall below 0°C or above 45°C (below 32°F or above 113°F), it may
cause safety issues.
Turning on the xTablet T1150
Press and hold the power button on the top of the T1150 for at least 4 seconds to power on the unit.
