CHARGING THE BATTERIES
Battery charge life depends on many variables but, under normal
conditions, autonomy is more than enough for a day work.
Information on the battery-charge status is provided by the
dedicated icon on the display
icon is valid only when the terminal is not inserted in the cradle.
Four different charge levels are given from a maximum value (all
the icon segments full) to a minimum one which warns of pre-low-
battery (icon empty and intermittently flashing).
Recharging should be made after using the terminal until the
batteries are nearly flat.
Recharge the terminal by simply inserting it into its cradle;
Datalogic S.p.A. recommends a minimum uninterrupted recharging
time of eight hours. When using the NiMh battery a standard
recharge does not allow taking fully advantage of the improved
battery technology. For this reason, a recharging time of about 60
hours is advised to get the NiMh maximum capacity.
When batteries are new, or have not been recharged for a long
time, it is necessary to perform two or three charge and discharge
cycles (with complete use) before the batteries are able to reach
their maximum capacity.
Rechargeable battery packs (NiCd/NiMh) are not
initially charged. Therefore the first operation to
perform is to charge them in the appropriate
paragraph "Charging the Batteries".
When the terminal display window shows the
message "BATTERY LOW", wait until the it is
turned off before inserting it in the cradle.
