10 - First things first
• Device with built-in battery: A built-in battery must be replaced by an
authorized service center. Do not attempt to replace or remove the
battery by yourself.
• Device with removable battery: The battery should only be replaced
with parts approved by Acer. Do not replace the battery with any
parts other than approved ones.
This notebook uses a Lithium-based battery. Do not use it in a humid,
wet or corrosive environment. Do not put, store or leave your product
in or near a heat source, in a high temperature location, in strong
direct sunlight, in a microwave oven or in a pressurized container, and
do not expose it to temperatures over 50 °C (122 °F).
Failure to follow these guidelines may cause the battery to leak acid,
become hot, explode or ignite and cause injury and/or damage. Do
not pierce, open or disassemble the battery. If the battery leaks and
you come into contact with the leaked fluids, rinse thoroughly with
water and seek medical attention immediately. For safety reasons,
and to prolong the lifetime of the battery, charging will must not occur
at temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F) or above 35 °C (95 °F).
The full performance of a new battery is achieved only after two or
three complete charge and discharge cycles. The battery can be
charged and discharged hundreds of times, but it will eventually wear
out. When the operation time becomes noticeably shorter than
normal, check an authorized reseller to purchase a new battery.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Never use any charger
or battery that is damaged. Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental
short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object such as a coin, clip or
pen causes direct connection of the positive (+) and negative (-)
terminals of the battery. (These look like metal strips on the battery.)
This might happen, for example, when you carry a spare battery in
your pocket or purse. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the
battery or the connecting object.
The capacity and lifetime of the battery will be reduced if the battery is
left in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer or winter.
Always try to keep the battery between 15
F). A device with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily,
even when the battery is fully charged. Battery performance is
especially limited in temperatures well below freezing.
