Battery Safety Tips

Replacing or handling the battery incorrectly may present a risk of fire or explosion, which could cause serious injury.

Š Only replace the main battery pack with the same or equivalent type of battery.

Š Do not disassemble, short-circuit or incinerate batteries or store them to temperatures above

+60° C (+140° F).

Š Do not temper with batteries. Keep away from the reach of children.

Š Do not use rusty or damaged batteries.

Š Dispose of batteries according to local regulations. Check with your local solid waste officials for details about recycling options or for proper disposal in your area.

Conserving Battery Power

Efficient battery power is critical to maintain a normal operation. If the battery power is not managed well, the saved data and customized settings may be lost.

To optimize battery life and avoid a sudden power loss, read the tips below:

Š Suspend system operation if the system will be idle for a while or shorten the suspend timer’s time period.

Š Turn off the system if you won’t be using it for a period of time.

Š Disable unnecessary settings or remove idle peripherals.

Š Connect an AC/DC adapter to the system whenever possible.

3-8

Charging the Battery Pack

The battery pack can be recharged while it is installed in the notebook. Please pay attention to the following tips before recharging the battery:

Š If a charged battery pack is not available, save your work and close all running programs and shut down the system or Save-to-Disk.

Š Plug in an external AC/DC adapter.

Š You can use the system, suspend system operation or shut down and turn off the system without interrupting the charging process.

Š The battery pack uses Lithium-ion battery cells that have no “memory effect.” It is unnecessary to discharge the battery before recharging. However, to optimize the life of battery, we suggest that consuming the battery power completely once a month is necessary.

Š If you do not use the notebook for a long time, it is suggested to remove the battery pack from your notebook. This may be helpful to extend your battery life.

Š The actual charging time will be determined by the applications in use.
