For safety reasons, and to prolong the lifetime of the battery, charging will not occur at
temperatures below 0° C (32° F) or above 40° C (104° 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, buy a new battery. Use only the approved batteries, and recharge your battery
only with the approved chargers designated for this device.
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°C and 25°C (59°F and 77°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.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they may explode. Batteries may also explode if
damaged. Dispose of batteries according to local regulations. Please recycle when
possible. Do not dispose as household waste.
