WA R N I N G : READ AND UNDERSTAND A L L I N S T R U C T I O N S. Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in personal injury.
Installing the Batteries
Open the battery compartment cover as shown in figure 1. Insert four fresh alkaline A A A b a t t e r i e s
making sure to match (+) and (-) terminals correctly. Replace the battery compartment cover.
WARNING: Batteries can explode, or leak, and can cause injury or fire. To reduce this risk:
• Carefully follow all instructions and warnings on the battery label and package. • Always insert
batteries correctly with regard to polarity (+ and -), marked on the battery and the equipment. • Do
not short battery terminals. • Do not charge batteries. • Do not mix old and new batteries. Replace
all of them at the same time with new batteries of the same brand and type. • Remove dead
batteries immediately and dispose of per local codes. • Do not dispose of batteries in fire. • Keep
batteries out of reach of children. • Remove batteries if the device will not be used for several months.
" Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently come in contact with conductive materials such
as keys, coins, hand tools and the like. The US Department of Transportation Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually
prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on airplanes (i.e. packed in suitcases and carryon luggage) UNLESS they are properly
protected from short circuits. So when transporting individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well
insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit."
WARNING: Always use proper eye protection.
