If a battery is being used for the first time or if the battery has not been used for a

prolonged period, it may be necessary to connect the charger, then disconnect and

reconnect it to begin charging the battery. If the battery is completely discharged,

it may take several minutes before the charging indicator appears on the display or

before any calls can be made.
Safe removal. Always switch the device off and disconnect the charger before

removing the battery.
Proper charging. Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when

not in use. Do not leave a fully charged battery connected to a charger, since

overcharging may shorten its lifetime. If left unused, a fully charged battery will

lose its charge over time.
Avoid extreme temperatures. Always try to keep the battery between 15°C and 25°C

(59°F and 77°F). Extreme temperatures reduce the capacity and lifetime of the

battery. A device with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily. Battery

performance is particularly limited in temperatures well below freezing.
Do not short-circuit. Accidental short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object

such as a coin, clip, or pen causes direct connection of the positive (+) and negative

(-) terminals of the battery. (These look like metal strips on the battery.) This might

happen, for example, when you carry a spare battery in your pocket or purse. Short-

circuiting the terminals may damage the battery or the connecting object.
Disposal. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they may explode. Dispose of

batteries according to local regulations. Please recycle when possible. Do not

dispose as household waste.
Leak. Do not dismantle, cut, open, crush, bend, puncture, or shred cells or batteries.

In the event of a battery leak, prevent battery liquid contact with skin or eyes. If

this happens, flush the affected areas immediately with water, or seek medical help.
Damage. Do not modify, remanufacture, attempt to insert foreign objects into the

battery, or immerse or expose it to water or other liquids. Batteries may explode if

Correct use. Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Improper battery use may

result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard. If the device or battery is dropped,
