■ Lithium-ion Battery Pack
The Lithium-ion Battery Pack is available as an option.
● Never allow the battery pack to become wet. Water can create the danger of
battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
● Never use or leave the battery pack next to open flame, near a stove, or any
other area exposed to high heat. Doing so creates the danger of battery
pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
● Never use the battery pack with any device other than this unit. Doing so can
creates the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
● Note that the battery pack's positive (+) and negative (–) terminals must be
oriented correctly when it is loaded into the charger unit or the Data
Collector. Connecting the battery pack with its terminals reversed creates the
danger of battery pack fluid leakage, heat emission, explosion, and fire.
● Never dispose of the battery pack by incinerating it or otherwise expose it to
heat. Doing so creates the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion,
and fire.
● Never allow the positive (+) and negative (–) terminals of the battery pack to
become connected (shorted) by metal. Doing so creates the danger of
battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
● Never transport or store the battery pack together with a necklace, hair pins
or other metal objects. Doing so can short battery pack terminals, creating
the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire. Be sure to
place the battery pack in its case whenever transporting or storing it.
● Never throw the battery pack or otherwise subject it to strong impact. Doing
so creates the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
● Never pierce the battery pack with nails, hit it with a hammer, or step on it.
Doing so can create the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion,
and fire.
● Never try to take apart the battery pack or modify it in any way. Doing so
creates the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
● Use only the specified charger unit to charge the battery pack. Use of other
types of charger units creates the danger of battery pack heat emission,
explosion, and fire.
■ Handling Alkaline Batteries
● Should fluid from the battery pack accidentally get into your eyes, there is a
threat of loss of eyesight, do not rub them. Immediately rinse your eyes with
clean tap water and then consult a physician immediately.

    ● Should the unit become hot or start to emit smoke or a strange odor, immediately turn off the power and contact your original dealer or an authorized CASIO service provider. Continued use creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
  • Page 3 Warning! ■ Handling Alkaline Batteries ● Do not put the battery in a fire, expose it to heat, dismantle or modify it. If the insulation or safety valve is damaged, the battery may leak fluid, overheat or explode. ● Do not insert the battery with the poles reversed. Doing so may cause some abnormality or a short and the battery may leak fluid, overheat or explode.
  • Page 4 Warning! ■ Handling the Coin Type Lithium Battery ● Do not recharge coin type lithium battery. Doing so may cause it to leak fluid, overheat, explode or burst into flames. ● Do not put the coin type lithium battery in open flame, or apply solder directly to the coin type lithium battery.
  • Page 5 ■ Make back-up copies of all important data ● Note that CASIO Computer Co., Ltd. shall not be liable to you or any third party for any damages or loss caused by deletion or corruption of data due to use of this, malfunction or repair of this unit or its peripherals, or due to batteries going dead.

    Caution! ■ Foreign Objects ● Take care to ensure that metal or combustible objects are not inserted into the openings of the unit. Such objects create the danger of fire and electrical shock. ■ Location ● Do not locate the unit on a surface that is unstable or uneven. Doing so creates the danger of the unit falling, which can cause personal injury.
  • Page 7 Caution! ■ Handling Alkaline Batteries ● Store batteries someplace out of direct sunlight where the temperature and humidity are not high. Not doing so may cause the batteries to leak fluid, overheat or explode. Also, it may cause the life and performance of the batteries to decline.
  • Page 8 Caution! ■ Lithium-ion Battery Pack The Lithium-ion Battery Pack is available as an option. ● Never leave the battery pack in an area expose to direct sunlight, in a car parked in direct sunlight, or any other very hot area. Doing so creates the danger of heat emission and fire, as well as deterioration of battery pack performance and shortening of its service life.
