  • Page 43: Startup Help

    New batteries must be fully charged prior to first use. Li-Ion batteries (like all batteries) gradually lose their capacity over time (in a linear fashion) and never just stop working. This is important to remember – the MX9 is always ‘on’ even when in the Suspend state and draws battery power at all times.

    Use a clean soft cloth to wipe any dirt, moisture or grease from the MX9, charging contacts or the cradle. Do not use any liquid to clean the cradle, battery pack, MX9, or charging terminals (pins). Spray or dampen the cleaning cloth with liquids/sprays. If possible, clean only those areas which are soiled.

    The spare battery charger can recover a battery that has had its safety circuit tripped. The spare battery well is molded in the shape of the MX9 main battery. The spare battery can be inserted in the battery well in only one direction. When there is an MX9, with or without a handle, docked in the cradle, a spare battery can still be inserted in the charging bay.
