Battery
Chapter 2 - Battery
2.1
Battery Pack
Your notebook is equipped with a high-energy rechargeable Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery
pack. Battery life will vary depending on the product configuration, product model,
applications loaded on the product, power management settings of the product, and product
features used by the customer. As with all batteries, the maximum capacity of this battery
will decrease with time and usage.
2.2
Recharging The Battery Pack
Your notebook supports both on-line and off-line recharge. Follow the procedure below to
recharge battery:
• Make sure the battery pack is installed in the notebook.
• Connect the AC adapter to the notebook and to an electrical outlet.
The two System LEDs are available to reflect the system status as well as the battery
status. For details on the System LEDs, please refer to Chapter 1.3. When the notebook is
OFF, a depleted Li-Ion battery will take three hours to recharge.
Page 2-1
Battery
2.3
Q:
A:
User's Guide
Questions and Answers:
I can feel a mild heat next to the battery pack. Is this normal?
The battery will generate heat during recharging and discharging. There is a
protection circuit inside the notebook to prevent overheating. You do not need to
worry.
Q:
A:
My battery operation time is not as long as it should be. Why?
Q:
I did not use my spare battery for a few days. Even though it was fully recharged,
there wasn't as much power left as a newly charged one. Why?
A:
The batteries will self-discharge (1% per day for Li-Ion) when they are not being
recharged. To make sure a battery pack is fully charged, recharge before use.
Always keep the battery inside the notebook and have the AC adapter connected
whenever possible.
Q:
A:
I did not use my spare battery for months. I am having a problem recharging it.
The battery is heat sensitive and can only be charged to its maximum if the battery
and its environmental temperature remain within 15-25°C (59-77°F). The more the
temperature deviates from this range during recharging, the less chance there is for
the battery to be fully charged. In order to recharge the pack to its full capacity,
users are requested to cool down the unit by unplugging the AC Adapter. Wait until
it is cooled down. Then plug in the AC Adapter to start recharging again.
If you happen to leave your battery pack to go through an extended period of selfdischarge, say more than three months, the battery voltage level will become too
low and needs to be Pre-Charged (to bring the battery voltage level high enough)
before it automatically (for Li-Ion only) resumes its normal Fast Charge. PreCharge may take 30 minutes. Fast Charge usually takes 2-3 hours.
Page 2-2
User's Guide
2.4
Battery
Battery Maintenance
To maintain the battery pack's maximum capacity, you should occasionally let the
notebook deplete its battery power completely before recharging.
To carry out a complete depletion of the battery, disconnect the AC adapter and let your
notebook consume the remaining battery power. To speed up the depletion, use the HDD
as much as possible and set the LCD as bright as possible. When the battery is empty, wait
for the notebook to cool down (especially the battery). The temperature should be within
15-25°C (59-77°F). Then insert the AC adapter to recharge the battery.
2.5
Power Consumption
Windows™ XP, the latest Windows operating system, has incorporated the latest state-ofthe-art ACPI (Advanced Configuration Power Interface) power management
methodology. In order to fully utilize the power of your battery packs, it would be a good
idea for you to spend some time acquiring a basic understanding of the power management
concept from your operating system.
In Windows™ Operating Systems, you can go through Power Options of the Control
Panel according to the version of the Windows™ Operating System the notebook uses.
We shall not describe them in detail. The Power Options in Windows™ XP are further
divided into the categories below:
• Power Schemes
• Alarms
• Power Meter
• Advanced
• Hibernate
Page 2-3
Battery
2.6
User's Guide
Reducing Power Consumption
Although your notebook (together with the operating system) is capable of power
conservation, there are measures you can take to reduce the power consumption:
• Use the AC power whenever possible.
• Lower the intensity of the LCD backlight. A very bright screen translates to higher
power usage.
• Try to use the HDD or the PCMCIA drive to read and write files, instead of using
the external USB FDD.
Note:
2.7
The battery pack should be locked in the battery compartment all the time.
Removing The Battery Pack
This battery pack can easily be removed and replaced. Make sure that the computer is
properly shutdown before changing the battery pack. If you would like to change the
battery pack while the power is on, make sure this battery pack is not the only electrical
source to the system unit. Follow the steps below to remove the battery pack.

The secondary
HDD socket
Your notebook is equipped with two sets of HDD sockets. These sockets support industry
standard 2.5”/9.5mm SATA-2 Gen1i (1.5Gb/s) hard disk drives. Unless you are going to
install two Windows bootable HDD drives into these sockets, there is generally no need to
distinguish which socket is the primary socket and vice versa. Below are the three major
scenarios:
• One Windows™ bootable HDD drive: You are at your liberty to use either one of
the two sockets. But the primary socket is your preferred choice for the bootable
HDD drive.
• One Windows™ bootable HDD drive and another Windows™ non-bootable HDD
drive: You are at your liberty to use either one of the two sockets for the bootable
HDD drive. Again, the primary socket is your preferred choice for the bootable HDD
drive.
• Both HDD drives are Windows™ bootable: Choose the HDD drive you want the
system to boot up from and have this drive installed on the primary socket.

USA and Canada Safety Requirements And Notices
The FCC with its action in ET Docket 93-62 has adopted a safety standard for human
exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC certified
equipment. The Intel PRO/Wireless LAN MiniPCI Adapter products meet the Human
Exposure limits found in OET Bulletin 65, 2001, and ANSI/IEEE C95.1, 1992. Proper
operation of this radio according to the instructions found in this manual will result in
exposure substantially below the FCC’s recommended limits.
The following safety precautions should be observed:
• Do not touch or move the antenna while the unit is transmitting or receiving.
• Do not hold any component containing the radio such that the antenna is very close or
touching any exposed parts of the body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting.
• Do not operate the radio or attempt to transmit data unless the antenna is connected; if
not, the radio may be damaged.
Use in specific environments:
• The use of wireless devices in hazardous locations is limited by the constraints posed
by the safety directors of such environments.
• The use of wireless devices on airplanes is governed by the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA).
• The use of wireless devices in hospitals is restricted to the limits set forth by each
hospital.
Antenna use:
• In order to comply with FCC RF exposure limits, low gain integrated antennas should
be located at a minimum distance of 20 cm (8 inches) or more from the body of all
persons.
• High-gain, wall-mount, or mast-mount antennas are designed to be professionally
installed and should be located at a minimum distance of 30 cm (12 inches) or more
from the body of all persons. Please contact your professional installer, VAR, or
antenna manufacturer for proper installation requirements.
