20 1 Using the Battery Pack Using the Battery Pack The battery pack is exclusively for use with Olympus voice recorder DS-5000/DS-5000iD. Never use them in combination with other equipment. Discharging Battery pack self-discharge while this is not in use. Be sure to charge them regularly before use. Battery life Over time, rechargeable battery packs gradually wear down. If you charge you battery pack regularly and you notice a decrease in usage time, then it is probably time to purchase a new battery pack. Operating temperature Rechargeable batteries, such as the battery pack, are chemical products. Batteries efficiency may fluctuate even when operating within the recommended temperature range. This is an inherent nature of such products. Recommended temperature range for use Discharging (when using appliance): 0°C - 42°C/32°F - 107.6°F Charging: 5°C - 40°C/41°F - 104°F Storage: –20°C - 30°C/–4°F - 86°F Using the battery pack outside the above temperature range may result in declining efficiency and shorter battery life. In order to prevent battery leakage or rust, remove the battery pack from the products when you will not be using them for a long time, and store them separately. Notes • This recorder is designed to fully charge battery pack regardless of their energy level. However, for best results when charging newly purchased battery pack or battery pack that have not been used for a long time (more than one month), It is recommended to fully charge the battery pack then discharge repeatedly for 2 to 3 times. • When disposing battery packs, always observe the local laws and regulations. Contact you local recycling center for proper disposal methods. • If Ni-MH rechargeable battery pack is not fully discharged, protect against short-circuiting (e.g. by taping the contacts) before disposing. For customers in Germany Olympus has a contract with the GRS (Joint Battery Disposal Association) in Germany to ensure environmentally friendly disposal.
