Charging Your Batteries

If you intend to use battery power, be sure to fully charge your battery pack
before going on long trips. Remember that the power adapter charges the
battery pack as long as it is plugged into the computer and an AC power source.
Be aware that it takes much longer to charge the battery pack when the Eee Pad
is in use.
Remember to fully charge the battery (8 hours or more) before first use and
whenever it is depleted to prolong battery life. The battery reaches its maximum
capacity after a few full charging and discharging cycles.

Airplane Precautions

Ask an airline personnel if you want to use your Eee Pad onboard an aircraft.
Most airlines have restrictions for using electronic devices. Most airlines allow
electronic use only between and not during takeoffs and landings.
There are three main types of airport security devices: X-ray machines (used
on items placed on conveyor belts), magnetic detectors (used on people
walking through security checks), and magnetic wands
(hand-held devices used on people or individual items). You can send your
Eee Pad through airport X-ray machines. But do not send your Eee Pad
through airport magnetic detectors or expose it to magnetic wands.
