Checking Battery Charge

To check the charge status of a battery in a monitor, see the battery power gauge on the Screen or
select Main Setup -> Battery to enter the Battery Status window.
To check the charge status of a battery that is not connected to a monitor or battery charger, press
the black dot marked "PUSH" on the labeled side of the battery. The remaining charge is indicated
by four LEDs on the electronic fuel gauge directly above the dot. Each LED represents 25% of
charge. If all LEDs are lit, the battery is fully charged, if only one LED is lit, 25% or less charge is
left.

Press the battery compartment latch to open the
1

Optimizing Battery Performance
The performance of rechargeable batteries may deteriorate over time. Battery maintenance as
recommended here can help to slow down this process.
Display Brightness Setting
In the Main Setup menu, select User Interface -> Brightness - > Optimum. This
selects a level of brightness suitable for most monitoring locations that uses less battery power than
brighter settings.
Satisfy yourself that this level of brightness is suitable for your monitoring location.
Note that your monitor may be configured to dim or brighten the display brightness automatically
when you disconnect from power, to suit the most common transport scenario
("TransportBrightn" setting).
