Batteries and

other important stuff!

slide34
Keep devices charging whenever not in use. Batteries drain over a few weeks even when the device is turned off. Main battery drains in a few days – backup batteries drain over 1 to 2 weeks.
  • The devices are run on lithium ion batteries which cannot be “overcharged” and do not need to be fully flattened before recharging.
slide35
But …if batteries go flat, you do not lose:
  • Portable Impact Software
  • Custom Configurations
  • Text files
  • Dictionary entries
  • Pronunciation exceptions
  • Abbreviation expansions
slide36
Make sure you always turn off the speaker batteries when not in use.
  • Best to keep a spare speaker battery and backup Palmtop battery on hand. (Tablet’s backup battery is rechargeable – Palmtop’s is not.)
slide37
Users will be given free software upgrades for 12 months after purchase.In the new version coming soon …
