NOTE • When disposing the batteries, always observe the local laws and regulations. Contact your local recycling center for proper disposal methods. • If battery is not fully discharged, protect it against short-circuiting (e.g. by taping the contacts) before disposal. For customers in Germany: Olympus has a contract with the GRS (Joint Battery Disposal Association) in Germany to ensure environmentally friendly disposal. NOTE • Charge the battery frequently during the first period of use. The battery will perform better after several charge/discharge cycles. • Models of batteries which are different from the included one may not be charged. • Charging the battery via the USB cable connection may not be successful depending on the power capacity of the USB port in your PC. Use the AC adapter instead. • Do not set or remove the recorder from the docking station while operating. • Do not charge the recorder through a USB hub. • Do not attach or remove the battery if the USB cable is connected. Using the lithium ion battery This recorder uses a lithium ion battery specified by Olympus (Li-92B). Do not use any other type of battery. Cautions concerning the battery Read the following instructions carefully when you use the battery. Discharging: Rechargeable batteries self-discharge while not in use. Charge it regularly before use. Battery life: Over time, the rechargeable battery may gradually wear down. When the operating time becomes shorter even if the rechargeable battery is fully charged under the specified condition, replace it with a new one. Operating temperature: Rechargeable batteries are chemical products. Battery efficiency may vary even when operating within the recommended temperature range. This is an inherent nature of these products.
