2. BATTERY INFORMATION
2.1 Charging the Battery Pack
The Li-ion battery pack is not charged at the factory; please charge it
before use.
Charging the battery pack for the first time after purchase or extended
storage (more than 2 months) may not bring the battery pack to its normal
maximum operating capacity. Best operation will require fully charging/
discharging the battery two or three times before the operating capacity will
reach its best performance. The battery pack life may be depleted when
its operating time decreases even though it has been fully and correctly
charged. If this is the case, replace the battery pack.
2.2 Charger Supplied
Please use the specified charger provided by AnyTone. Other models may
cause explosion and personal injury. After installing the battery pack, and
if the radio displays low battery with a red flashing lamp or voice prompt,
please charge the battery.
2.3 Use Caution with the Li-ion Battery
a.Do not short the battery terminals or throw the battery into a fire. Never
attempt to remove the casing from the battery pack, as AnyTone cannot
be held responsible for any accident caused by modifying the battery.
b.The ambient temperature should be between 5℃-40℃ (40˚F - 105˚F)
while charging the battery. Charging outside this range may not fully
charge the battery.
c.Please turn off the radio before inserting it into the charger. It may
otherwise interfere with correct charging.
d.To avoid interfering with the charging cycle, please do not cut off the
power or remove the battery during charging until the green light is on.
e.Do not recharge the battery pack if it is fully charged. This may shorten
the life of the battery pack or damage the battery pack.
f. Do not charge the battery or the radio if it is damp. Dry it before charging
to avoid damage.

2. BATTERY INFORMATION
WARNING:
»»When keys, ornamental chain or other electric metals contact the
battery terminal, the battery may become damage or injure a human.
If the battery terminals are short circuited it will generate a lot of heat.
Take care when carrying and using the battery. Remember to put the
battery or radio into an insulated container. Do not put it into a metal
container.
2.4 How to Charge
a.Plug the AC adaptor into the AC outlet, and then plug the cable of the
AC adaptor into the DC jack located on the back of the charger. The
indicator light blinks orange and is then ready to charge a battery.
b.Plug the battery or the radio into the charger. Make sure the battery
terminals are good in contact with charging terminals. The indicator light
starts to blink red--- Pre-charging begins.
c.After pre-charging for about 5 minutes, the red indicator will stop
blinking--- charging begins.
d.It takes approximately 2-5 hours to fully charge the battery. When the
lamp lights green, the charging is completed. Remove the battery or the
radio unit with its battery from socket
»»when charging a radio (with battery) the indicating lamp will
not turn into green to show the fully charged status if the radio
is powered on. Only when the radio is switched off will the lamp
indicate normal operation. The radio consumes energy when it
is power-on, and the charger cannot detect the correct battery
voltage when the battery has been fully charged. So the charger
will charge the battery in constant voltage mode and fail to
indicate correctly when the battery has been fully charged.

2.5 Normal Charging Tips
a.Self-Test: When powering on the charger, the orange light blinks and
stays off, which means the charger has passed it self-test and it is ready
to charge the battery. If the light remains orange or the red light blinks,
it means the charger cannot pass it self-test and cannot charge the
battery.
b.Trickle Pre-Charging: If red light blinks when the battery is inserted
into the charger, it means that the battery voltage is low and the charger
is trickle-charging the battery (Pre-Charging Mode). The charger will
automatically turn into normal charging when the battery reaches a
certain electric charge, and if the red light stops blinking, it means the
battery voltage has reached a certain level, and the charger will charge
the battery in normal mode.

AT-D868UV Digital DMR and Analog UHF/VHF Two Way Radio
2. BATTERY INFORMATION
»»Trickle charging (Pre-Charging Mode) time cannot last beyond
30 minutes. If the indicating lamp still blinks red after 30-minute
trickle-charging, it means that the charger cannot charge the
battery correctly. Please check whether the battery or charger is
damaged.
2.6 How to Store the Battery

SAFETY
The Anytone AT-D868UV DMR handheld transceiver has been carefully
designed to provide you with years of safe, reliable operation. As with
all electrical equipment, however, there are a few basic precautions you
should take to avoid hurting yourself or damaging the radio:
• Read the instructions in this handbook carefully. Be sure to save it for
future reference.
• Read and follow all warning and instruction labels on the radio and
owner’s manual.
• Do not carry the transceiver by the antenna. This may damage the
antenna or antenna terminal. Grasp the handheld by its base (not the
antenna) when you need to place or remove it.
• Do not keep the radio with the antenna very close to, or touching exposed
parts of the body, while transmitting. Anytone radios will perform best, if
you speak 2-4 inches away from the microphone and the radio is vertical.
• Be sure the “PTT” key is not pressed when you do not need to transmit.
• Do not operate the radio near unshielded electrical blasting caps or in an
explosive atmosphere.
• Do not transmit without the antenna fitted on the radio. Though it is
provided with a protection, it may damage the TX output final stage.
• Respect the environment conditions. The radio is designed to be used in
heavy environments, however avoid exposing it to extremely hot or cold
temperature (out of the range between –20 to +140°F). Do not expose the
transceiver to excessive vibrations as well as dusty or rainy locations.
• Never try to disassemble or service the radio by yourself (aside from the
routine maintenance described in this handbook). It may cause damage
to the radio transceiver and void your warranty requiring extensive repair
work. Always contact your local dealer for assistance.
• Use only authorized accessories. Using non Anytone radio brand
accessories may seriously damage your handheld transceiver and void
your warranty.
• Do not spill liquid of any kind into your radio. If the transceiver gets wet,
immediately dry it by a soft and clean cloth.
• Switch the radio off before you clean it. Follow the directions described in
the paragraph “Care and maintenance”.
AT-D868UV Digital DMR and Analog UHF/VHF Two Way Radio

SAFETY
• Handle the battery properly. Never place the LI-ion battery in your pocket
or purse with loose coins. This could result in short circuiting the battery.
• Be certain that your power source matches the rating listed for the
supplied battery charger (AC adapter). If you are not sure, check with your
authorized Anytone dealer.
• Avoid damaging the power cable of the battery charger. Do not step on
or place anything on it as this could result in a damaged charger power
cord. This product complies with the requirements of the Council Directives
89/336/EEC and 73/23/EEC on the approximation of the laws of the
member states relating to electromagnetic compatibility and low voltage.
WARNING
Your wireless hand-held portable transceiver contains a low power
transmitter. When the Push-to-Talk (PTT) button is pressed it sends out
radio frequency (RF) signals. The device is authorized to operate at a duty
factor not to exceed 50% TX and 50% RX.
In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted
RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for hand-held wireless devices.
To maintain compliance with the FCC’s RF exposure guidelines, this
transmitter and its antenna must maintain a separation distance of least 2
inches from your face. Speak in a normal voice, with the antenna pointed
up and away from the face at the required separation distance. The belt
clip is for storage purposes only.
AVOID TRANSMITING ON HIGH POWER WHILE RADIO IS ATTACHED
TO YOUR BELT. To transmit, hold the device away from your body and
ensure the antenna is at least 2 inches from your body when transmitting.
