Laser Information
The Unitech HT660e series is certified in the U.S. to conform to the
requirements of DHHS/CDRH 21CFR Subchapter J and to the requirements of
IEC 825-1. Class II and Class 2 products are not considered to be hazardous.
The HT660e series contains internally a Visible Laser Diode (VLD) whose
emissions do not exceed the maximum limits as set forth in the above
regulations. The scanner is designed so that there is no human access to
harmful laser light during normal operation, user maintenance or during
prescribed service operations.
The laser safety warning label required by the DHHS/IEC for the HT660e
series' optional laser scanner module is located on the memory compartment
cover, on the back of the unit.
CAUTION! Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other
than those specified herein may result in hazardous laser light.
Use of optical instruments with the scanner will increase eye
hazard. Optical instruments include binoculars, microscopes, and
magnifying glasses. This does not include eyeglasses worn by the
user.
Battery Notices
The HT660e is equipped with a Lithium-Ion battery pack and backup battery.
Both batteries will discharge after an extended period of not being used.
When both batteries are discharged, recharge the unit for 12 hours in order to
fully charge the main battery and backup battery. Recharge the HT660e
through the following:
1. Plug the USB charging cable to the HT660e and plug the 5V/2A AC-DC
adapter to the power jack of the USB charging cable.
2. Place the HT660e into the cradle and plug the 5V/2A AC-DC adapter to
the power jack of the cradle.
iv
If the main battery is removed, the backup battery ensures the data on SDRAM
is safe for up to 72 hours. To prevent data loss, do not leave the HT660e
uncharged with the main battery removed for an extended period. See First
Time to Charge the Main Battery & Backup Battery on page 9 for more details.
Note: Rechargeable batteries are advised to replace every year or when 500
charge/discharge cycles achieved to guarantee optimal performance. It
is normal that the battery balloons or expands beyond one year or the
maximum of 500 cycles. Although it does not cause harm, it cannot be
used again and must be disposed of according to the location's safe
battery disposal procedures.
If the performance decrease is greater than 20% in a Lithium-Ion battery,
the battery is at the end of its life cycle. Do not continue to use, and
ensure the battery is disposed of properly.
The length of time that a battery power lasts depends on the battery type and
how the device is used. Conserve the battery life through the following:
Avoid frequent full discharges because this places additional strain on the
battery. Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better than
a deep one. Recharging a partially charged lithium-Ion battery does not
cause harm because there is no memory.
Keep the lithium-Ion battery cool. Avoid a hot car. For prolonged storage,
keep the battery at a 40% charge level.
Do not leave the lithium-Ion battery discharged and unused for an
extended period because the battery will wear out and the longevity of the
battery will be at least shorter than half of the one with frequent recharges.
Battery charge notice
It is important to consider the environment temperature whenever the
Lithium-Ion battery pack is charged. Charging is most efficient at normal room
temperature or in a slightly cooler environment. It is essential that batteries are
charged within the stated range of 10°C to 45°C. Charging batteries outside of
the specified range could damage the batteries and shorten their charging life
cycle.
CAUTION! Do not charge batteries at a temperature lower than 0°C, which will
increase the internal resistance to cause heat and make the
batteries unstable and unsafe. Please use a battery temperature
detecting device for a charger to ensure a safe charging
temperature range. Further, to protect and avoid battery from
v
inflating, the battery is detected for thermal protection and will not
be charged when the temperature of battery is over 50 degrees.
Do not leave the terminal for a long time in the charging cradle and
do not charge the battery with a cable long, which will shorten the
battery life and cause battery expanding/ballooning. The unit
should not be subject to very high temperature, excessive moisture,
and direct heat. Avoid the battery from being fully charged and
staying in a high temperature environment. Avoid terminal or spare
battery from staying in a hot vehicle. For prolonging the storage
time, keep the battery at a 40% charge level. Lithium ion batteries
oxidize least when they are stored at the state of 40% charge.
Storage and safety notice
Although charged Lithium-Ion batteries may be left unused for several months,
their capacity may be depleted due to build up of internal resistance. If this
happens they will require recharging prior to use. Lithium-Ion batteries may be
stored at temperatures between -20°C to 60°C, however they may deplete
more rapidly at the higher temperature ranges. It is recommended to store
batteries within normal room temperature ranges.
Warranty
The following items covered under Unitech Limited Warranty are free from
defects during normal use:
Terminal is covered by 1-year limited warranty.
Cradle is covered by 1-year limited warranty.
Cable is covered by 1-year limited warranty.
Battery is covered by 3-month limited warranty.
Warranty becomes void if equipment is modified, improperly installed or used,
dam-aged by accident or neglect, or if any parts are improperly installed or
replaced by the user.
Use only the adapter supplied. Using the wrong adapter may damage the unit
and will void the warranty.

Power system
Charging the Lithium-Ion Battery Pack
The HT660e's batteries can be charged via the USB or serial communication
cable, or via the optional cradle - both using the included AC adaptor. Please
charge the battery for at least 4 hours per session to ensure a full charge.
Please note that the first time charge should be for at least 12 hours (see the
description below).
Charging the Main and Backup Battery for the
First Time
When first charging the HT660e, please allow at least 12 hours to fully charge
both the main and backup batteries. When the HT660e arrives from the factory
the backup battery switch is in the OFF position in order to protect the backup
battery. Before first charging the HT660e, make sure the backup battery switch
is moved to the ON position. The backup battery switch can be found inside
the main battery compartment. Data loss can occur if the backup battery is not
adequately charged - therefore it is imperative to ensure that the backup
battery switch is in the ON position before charging for the first time.
A fully charged backup battery can store data for up to 72 hours without power
from the main battery. This is not recommended. Please make sure an
adequately charged main battery or AC power is presented and try not to rely
on the backup battery for other than unusual or emergency situations. To
prevent data loss due to backup battery failure (always a slim possibility),
please minimize the amount of time that the backup battery has to operate
without the main battery pack installed or while disconnected from AC power.
14
Environment Consideration for Charging
It is important to consider the environment temperature whenever you are
charging the Lithium-Ion battery pack. The process is most efficient at normal
room temperature or slightly cooler. It is essential that you charge batteries
within the stated range of -5°C to 50°C. Charging batteries outside of the
specified range could damage the batteries and shorten their charging life
cycle.
Power Status Indication
When the "Main Batteries Very Low" icon
appears, charging the main battery pack as
soon as possible is highly recommended in
order to avoid system shutdown at an
awkward moment.
“Backup Battery Low” Icon
When the "Backup Battery Low" icon appears, it indicates that the backup
battery is low and needs to be charged.
Charging the Lithium-Ion Battery Pack
Automatic shutdown of the HT660e
The HT660e will enter idle mode when there is no task, or all tasks are waiting
for input. In default setting, the HT660e will automatically turn itself off if it
remains idle for 3 minutes and when there is no external charging power
applied. Pressing the power button will return the HT660e to the same point at
the time of automatic shutdown.
Do not leave the terminal for a long time in the charging cradle and do not
charge the battery with a cable long, which will shorten the battery life and
cause battery expanding/ballooning. The unit should not be subject to very
high temperature, excessive moisture, and direct heat. Avoid the battery from
being fully charged and staying in a high temperature environment. Avoid
15
terminal or spare battery from staying in a hot vehicle. For prolonging the
storage time, keep the battery at a 40% charge level. Lithium ion batteries
oxidize least when they are stored at the state of 40% charge.
To save the battery power, it is better to turn off wireless mode. Please follow
the steps below to turn off the wireless mode
Tap Setting → Control Panel → Device
Setting to enter the Device Setting zone.
Move to the IO tab and select Disable to
disable the wireless mode.
Storage and Safety Precautions
Batteries should be stored in an open environment and placed where there is
no risk of accidental shorting or other damage. Although charged Li-Ion
batteries may be left unused for several months, their capacity may be reduced
due to back up and internal resistance. If this happens they will require
recharging prior to use. Li-Ion batteries may be stored at temperatures
between -4°F and 158°F (-20°C to 70°C).
