Charging the Main Battery
Before using the MC65 for the first time, charge the main battery until the amber Charging/Battery Status LED
remains lit (see
Table 1-1 on page 1-6
with the appropriate power supply. For information about the accessories available for the MC65, see
The MC65 is equipped with a memory backup battery which automatically charges from the fully-charged main
battery. When using the MC65 for the first time, the backup battery requires approximately 40 hours to fully charge.
This is also true any time the backup battery is discharged, which occurs when the main battery is removed for
several hours. The backup battery retains RAM data in memory for at least 15 minutes (at room temperature) when
the MC65's main battery is removed. When the MC65 reaches a very low battery state, the combination of main
battery and backup battery retains RAM data in memory for at least 36 hours.
For cable and cradle setup and charging procedures refer to the MC65 Integrator Guide.
