Guidelines for safe and efficient use
Please read these simple guidelines. Not
following these guidelines may be dangerous
or illegal.
Exposure to radio frequency
energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) information. This
mobile phone model LG-E510 has been
designed to comply with applicable safety
requirements for exposure to radio waves.
These requirements are based on scientific
guidelines that include safety margins
designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
• The radio wave exposure guidelines
employ a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Tests
for SAR are conducted using standardised
methods with the phone transmitting at
its highest certified power level in all used
frequency bands.
• While there may be differences between
the SAR levels of various LG phone
models, they are all designed to meet the
relevant guidelines for exposure to radio
waves.
7
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
• The SAR limit recommended by the
International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg
averaged over 10 g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model
phone tested by DASY4 for use at the ear
is 0.713 W/kg (10 g) and when worn on
the body is 1.12 W/kg (10 g).
• SAR data information for residents in
countries/regions that have adopted the
SAR limit recommended by the Institute
of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE), which is 1.6 W/kg averaged over
1g of tissue.
8
Product care and maintenance
WARNING
Only use batteries, chargers and
accessories approved for use with this
particular phone model. The use of any
other types may invalidate any approval
or warranty applying to the phone, and
may be dangerous.
• Do not disassemble this unit. Take it to a
qualified service technician when repair
work is required.
• Repairs under warranty, at LG’s option,
may include replacement parts or boards
that are either new or reconditioned,
provided that they have functionality equal
to that of the parts being replaced.
• Keep away from electrical appliances such
as TVs, radios, and personal computers.
• The unit should be kept away from heat
sources such as radiators or cookers.
• Do not drop.
• Do not subject this unit to mechanical
vibration or shock.
• Switch off the phone in any area where
you are required by special regulations.
For example, do not use your phone in
hospitals as it may affect sensitive medical
equipment.
• Do not handle the phone with wet hands
while it is being charged. It may cause an
electric shock and can seriously damage
your phone.
• Do not charge a handset near flammable
material as the handset can become hot
and create a fire hazard.
9
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
• Use a dry cloth to clean the exterior of the
unit (do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner or alcohol).
• Do not charge the phone when it is on soft
furnishings.
• The phone should be charged in a well
ventilated area.
• Do not subject this unit to excessive
smoke or dust.
• Do not keep the phone next to credit
cards or transport tickets; it can affect the
information on the magnetic strips.
10
• Do not tap the screen with a sharp object
as it may damage the phone.
• Do not expose the phone to liquid or
moisture.
• Use the accessories like earphones
cautiously. Do not touch the antenna
unnecessarily.
• Do not use, touch or attempt to remove
or fix broken, chipped or cracked glass.
Damage to the glass display due to
abuse or misuse is not covered under the
warranty.
• Do not use your device for a long period
of time with any part of your body in direct
contact with it. During normal operation,
the temperature of the product may
increase, which may cause your skin to be
harmed or burnt.
Efficient phone operation
Electronics devices
All mobile phones may get interference,
which could affect performance.
• Do not use your mobile phone near
medical equipment without requesting
permission. Avoid placing the phone over
pacemakers, for example, in your breast
pocket.
• Some hearing aids might be disturbed by
mobile phones.
• Minor interference may affect TVs, radios,
PCs, etc.
Road safety
Check the laws and regulations on the use
of mobile phones in the area when you drive.
• Do not use a hand-held phone while
driving.
11
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
• Give full attention to driving.
• Pull off the road and park before making
or answering a call if driving conditions
so require.
• RF energy may affect some electronic
systems in your vehicle such as car
stereos and safety equipment.
• When your vehicle is equipped with an
air bag, do not obstruct with installed or
portable wireless equipment. It can cause
the air bag to fail or cause serious injury
due to improper performance.
12
• If you are listening to music whilst out and
about, please ensure that the volume is at
a reasonable level so that you are aware
of your surroundings. This is particularly
imperative when near roads.
Avoid damage to your hearing
Damage to your hearing can occur if you are
exposed to loud sound for long periods of
time. We therefore recommend that you do
not turn on or off the handset close to your
ear. We also recommend that music and call
volumes are set to a reasonable level.
• When using headphones, turn the volume
down if you cannot hear the people
speaking near you, or if the person
sitting next to you can hear what you are
listening to.
NOTE: Excessive sound pressure from
earphones can cause hearing loss.
Glass Parts
Some parts of your mobile device are made
of glass. This glass could break if your
mobile device is dropped on a hard surface
or receives a substantial impact. If the glass
breaks, do not touch or attempt to remove.
Stop using your mobile device until the glass
is replaced by an authorised service provider.
Blasting area
Do not use the phone where blasting is in
progress. Observe restrictions, and follow
any regulations or rules.
Potentially explosive
atmospheres
• Do not use the phone at a refueling point.
• Do not use near fuel or chemicals.
13
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
• Do not transport or store flammable
gas, liquid, or explosives in the same
compartment of your vehicle as your
mobile phone and accessories.
In aircraft
Wireless devices can cause interference in
aircraft.
• Turn your mobile phone off before
boarding any aircraft.
• Do not use it on the ground without
permission from the crew.
14
Children
Keep the phone in a safe place out of the
reach of small children. It includes small
parts which may cause a choking hazard if
detached.
Emergency calls
Emergency calls may not be available
under all mobile networks. Therefore, you
should never depend solely on the phone
for emergency calls. Check with your local
service provider.
Battery information and care
• You do not need to completely discharge
the battery before recharging. Unlike other
battery systems, there is no memory
effect that could compromise the battery’s
performance.
• Use only LG batteries and chargers. LG
chargers are designed to maximise the
battery life.
• Do not disassemble or short-circuit the
battery pack.
• Keep the metal contacts of the battery
pack clean.
• Replace the battery when it no longer
provides acceptable performance. The
battery pack maybe recharged hundreds
of times until it needs replacing.
• Recharge the battery if it has not been
used for a long time to maximise usability.
• Do not expose the battery charger to direct
sunlight or use it in high humidity, such as
in the bathroom.
• Do not leave the battery in hot or cold
places, this may deteriorate the battery
performance.
15
Guidelines for safe and efficient use
• There is risk of explosion if the battery is
replaced by an incorrect type.
• Dispose of used batteries according to
the manufacturer’s instructions. Please
recycle when possible. Do not dispose as
household waste.
• If you need to replace the battery, take it
to the nearest authorised LG Electronics
service point or dealer for assistance.
• Always unplug the charger from the wall
socket after the phone is fully charged to
save unnecessary power consumption of
the charger.
16
• Actual battery life will depend on network
configuration, product settings, usage
patterns, battery and environmental
conditions.
