Charge Station Components Overview (Wireless)
The charge station charges the battery in the wireless camera and the additional battery simultaneously
or separately. You can use the charge station as a stand-alone unit or attach it to the docking station.
The power for the charge station comes from the docking station or from the power adapter if it is used
as a stand-alone unit.
It takes 2 hours to charge the battery. A fully charged battery lasts approximately 45 minutes.
Important: As with all lithium-ion batteries, the discharge time will
slowly decrease over time. When the discharge time becomes too
low to perform operations, the battery must be replaced.

Note: If the camera is in the charge station for more than 3 hours (default),
it shuts down. To change the default automatic power-off time, see
“General Preferences”.
Rapid USB Cable Overview
The Rapid USB Cable is used for data transmission and uninterrupted power supply, with an
embedded battery. It is intended to reduce the start-up time by avoiding the power-off and power-on
cycle when moving the camera between computers or docking stations. When the cable is connected
to the computer or docking station, the USB power supply charges the embedded battery. When the
cable is not connected to computer or docking station, the camera is powered by the embedded
battery and kept in the power saving mode. If not connected to the computer or docking station within
30 minutes, the camera turns off automatically. The cable can be used with the Intraoral Camera
(Wired USB and Wireless models) with Firmware 1.1.5.X / 1.0.5.X or above.
