GUIDELINES
FOR SAFE BATTERY
USAGE
Battery information
Do not use this product in a humid, wet and/or corrosive environment.
Do not put, store or leave your product in or near a heat source, in a
high temperature location, in strong direct sunlight, in a microwave
oven or in a pressurized container, and do not expose it to
temperatures over 60° C (140° F). Failure to follow these guidelines
may cause the battery to leak acid, become hot, explode or ignite and
cause injury and/or damage. Do not pierce, open or disassemble the
battery. If the battery leaks and you come into contact with the leaked
fluids, rinse thoroughly with water and seek medical attention
immediately. For safety reasons, and to prolong the lifetime of the
battery, charging will not occur at low (below 0° C/32° F) or high (over
45° C/113° F) temperatures.
The full performance of a new battery is achieved only after two or
three complete charge and discharge cycles. The battery can be
charged and discharged hundreds of times, but it will eventually wear
out. When the talk and standby times are noticeably shorter than
normal, buy a new battery. Use only manufacturer approved batteries,
and recharge your battery only with manufacturer approved chargers
designated for this device.
Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when not in
use. Do not leave a fully charged battery connected to the AC
charger, since overcharging may shorten its lifetime. If left unused, a
fully charged battery will lose its charge over time. If the battery is
completely discharged, it may take a few minutes before the charging
indicator appears on the display or before any calls can be made.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Never use any charger
or battery that is damaged.
Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental shortcircuiting can occur
when a metallic object such as a coin, clip, or pen causes direct
connection of the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of the battery.
52 - Guidelines for safe battery usage
These look like metal strips on the battery. This might happen, for
example, when you carry a spare battery in your pocket or purse.
Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the battery or the
connecting object.
Leaving the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in
summer or winter conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of
the battery. Always try to keep the battery between 15° C and 25° C
(59° F and 77° F). A device with a hot or cold battery may not work
temporarily, even when the battery is fully charged. Battery
performance is particularly limited in temperatures well below
freezing.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they may explode. Batteries
may also explode if damaged. Dispose of batteries according to local
regulations.Please recycle when possible. Do not dispose as
household waste.
Replacing the battery
Replace the battery with the same type as that which came bundled
with your product. Use of another battery may present a risk of fire or
explosion.
Warning
Batteries may explode if not handled properly. Do not disassemble or
dispose of them in fire. Keep them away from children. Follow local
regulations when disposing of used batteries.
