Operating conditions
Temperature: 5 to 35°C. (without condensation)
Maintenance of the unit
When the front panel or case becomes dirty, wipe with a soft, dry
cloth.
Do not use thinner, benzine, alcohol, etc. for these agents may
cause discoloration.
Note on the built-in battery
• For the replacement of the built-in battery, contact your dealer.
• The battery built into this unit discharges spontaneously even
when this unit is not used. This means that the built-in battery
may be exhausted completely when this unit is left unused for
a long period. If this happens, recharge the battery before using
this unit.
• The battery recharging time is variable depending on the
condition of the battery and ambient temperature.
• The available playback time reduces when this unit is used under
low temperatures.
• The built-in battery can be recharged for about 500 times. (This is
a reference value and is not guaranteed.)
• The built-in battery is a consumable part, and the available
playback time reduces gradually after repeated use. If the
available playback time becomes very short even after the battery
has been recharged fully, the battery may be degraded; replace it
with new one.
• Kenwood will not assume any liabilities for the alteration or loss of
data caused due to complete discharging of the built-in battery.
• The built-in battery is a lithium ion battery.
It is free from the memory eff ect of Ni-Cd and nickel-hydrogen
batteries, with which the capacity decreases if the battery is
charged or discharged incompletely for several times.
The built-in battery therefore accepts additional charging before
it has exhausted completely.
Storage and maintenance of SD card

• Do not leave the SD card in a place with extremely high
temperature (under direct sunlight, etc.) or extremely high
