1 16 EN Setup/Batteries Setup Rechargeable batteries Read the information below carefully when using a lithium-ion rechargeable battery (Li-50B). 4 Discharging Rechargeable batteries discharge naturally when not in use. Be sure to charge the battery before use. 4 Operating temperature Rechargeable batteries are chemical-based products. Their performance can vary even when used within the recommended operating temperature range. This variation is normal. 4 Recommended temperature range When powering voice recorder: 0 to 42°C (32 to 107.6°F) When being charged: 5 to 35°C (41 to 95°F) During long-term storage: –20 to 30°C (–4 to 86°F) Use of a rechargeable battery outside the temperature ranges above may result in drops in battery performance or life. When not using the voice recorder for an extended period, remove the rechargeable battery before storage to prevent fluid leakage or rust. NOTE • Due to the nature of a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, new batteries and batteries not used for an extended period (one month or more) may not charge completely. The battery should become fully charged after charging and discharging the battery up to three times. Setting the voice guidance This feature gives voice announcements of recorder operating conditions. 1 Press the 2 or 3 button to select [On] or [Off]. [On]: Voice guidance will be enabled. [Off]: Guidance will be canceled. 2 Press the `OK button to finalize the setting. TIP • [On/Off], [Speed], and [Volume] can be set for the voice guidance.

1 Batteries 17 EN Batteries • Always dispose rechargeable batteries in the legally prescribed manner. Before disposing rechargeable batteries that are not fully discharged, take steps to prevent shorting such as insulating their terminals with tape. • Always turn power off before replacing the battery. Files may be damaged if the battery is removed while the voice recorder is recording or performing an operation such as erasing a file. • At the time of purchase, the battery cover is not attached to the device. • You may need to reset the date/time if the battery is removed from the voice recorder for over fifteen minutes, or if the battery is quickly removed and replaced. See“Setting the date/time [Time & Date]”(☞ P.71) for the procedure. • When not using the voice recorder for an extended period, always remove the battery before storage. • When buying rechargeable batteries, always select lithium-ion rechargeable batteries (Li-50B). Operation is not guaranteed. If a battery from another manufacturer is used. • Even if the battery indicator is [ ], playback with the built-in speaker at some volumes may result in a drop in battery output voltage, causing the voice recorder to reset. Lower the volume in this case. • Battery life will be shorter when using an SD card. • The continuous battery usage time will vary depending on the performance of the battery in use (☞ P.128). • Battery life will be shorter when using lithium-ion rechargeable battery that has been used repeatedly (☞ P.128). For customers in Germany: Olympus has an agreement with the GRS (Joint Battery Disposal Association) in Germany to ensure environmentally-friendly battery disposal. Battery indicator As the battery loses its remaining charge, the battery indicator on the display changes as follows: • [ ] indicates there is little remaining battery charge. Charge the battery.
