    33. 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.

    34. But …if batteries go flat, you do not lose: • Portable Impact Software • Custom Configurations • Text files • Dictionary entries • Pronunciation exceptions • Abbreviation expansions

    35. 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.)

    36. Users will be given free software upgrades for 12 months after purchase.In the new version coming soon … • More complete auto backup of all configurations • More flexibility in choosing keyboard layouts in symbol-based configurations • Rechargeable speaker batteries from mid-2002
