15 Safety information
This section contains important information about the operation of your device. It also
contains information about how to use the device safely. Read this information carefully
before using your device.
Electronic device
Do not use your device if using the device is prohibited. Do not use the device if doing so
causes danger or interference with other electronic devices.
Interference with medical equipment
 Follow rules and regulations set forth by hospitals and health care facilities. Do not use
your device where prohibited.
 Some wireless devices may affect the performance of hearing aids or pacemakers.
Consult your service provider for more information.
 Pacemaker manufacturers recommend that a minimum distance of 15 cm be maintained
between a device and a pacemaker to prevent potential interference with the pacemaker.
If using a pacemaker, hold the device on the side opposite the pacemaker and do not
carry the device in your front pocket.
Protecting your hearing when using a headset
 Using a headset at high volumes may damage your hearing. To reduce this risk, lower
the headset volume to a safe and comfortable level.
 Exposure to high volumes while driving may cause distraction and increase your risk of
an accident.
Areas with flammables and explosives
 Do not use the device where flammables or explosives are stored (in a gas station, oil
depot, or chemical plant, for example). Using your device in these environments
increases the risk of explosion or fire. In addition, follow the instructions indicated in text
or symbols.
 Do not store or transport the device in containers with flammable liquids, gases, or
explosives.
Traffic security
 Observe local laws and regulations while using the device. To reduce the risk of
accidents, do not use your wireless device while driving.
 Concentrate on driving. Your first responsibility is to drive safely.
 Do not hold the device while driving. Use hands-free accessories.
 When you must make or answer a call, pull off the road safely and park the vehicle first.
 RF signals may affect the electronic systems of motor vehicles. For more information,
consult the vehicle manufacturer.
 Do not place the device over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area in a motor
vehicle. Doing so may hurt you because of the strong force when the air bag inflates.
 Do not use your device while flying in an aircraft or immediately before boarding. Using
wireless devices in an aircraft may disrupt wireless networks, present a hazard to aircraft
operation, or be illegal.
Operating environment
 Avoid dusty, damp, or dirty environments. Avoid magnetic fields. Using the device in
these environments may result in circuit malfunctions.
 Do not use your device during thunderstorms to protect your device against any danger 32
caused by lightning.
 Do not expose your device to direct sunlight (such as on a car dashboard) for prolonged
periods.
 To protect your device or accessories from fire or electrical shock hazards, avoid rain
and moisture.
 Keep the device away from sources of heat and fire, such as a heater, microwave oven,
stove, water heater, radiator, or candle.
 Do not place sharp metal objects, such as pins, near the earpiece or speaker. The
earpiece may attract these objects and result in injury.
 Stop using your device or applications for a while if the device is overheated. If skin is
exposed to an overheated device for an extended period, low temperature burn
symptoms, such as red spots and darker pigmentation, may occur.

regulations and laws, and may be dangerous. Please contact your retailer for information
about the availability of approved accessories in your area.
Charger safety
 For pluggable devices, the socket-outlet shall be installed near the devices and shall be
easily accessible.
 Unplug the charger from electrical outlets and the device when not in use.
 Do not drop or cause an impact to the charger.
 If the power cable is damaged (for example, the cord is exposed or broken), or the plug
loosens, stop using it at once. Continued use may lead to electric shocks, short circuits,
or fire.
 Do not touch the power cord with wet hands or pull the power cord to disconnect the
charger.
 Do not touch the device or the charger with wet hands. Doing so may lead to short
circuits, malfunctions, or electric shocks.
 If your charger has been exposed to water, other liquids, or excessive moisture, take it to
an authorized service center for inspection.

1/UL60950-1 and has been tested and approved according to national or local standards.
 Connect the device only to products with the USB-IF logo or with USB-IF compliance
program completion.
Battery safety
 Do not connect battery poles with conductors, such as keys, jewelry, or other metal 33
materials. Doing so may short-circuit the battery and cause injuries or burns.
 Keep the battery away from excessive heat and direct sunlight. Do not place it on or in
heating devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may explode if
overheated.
 Do not attempt to modify or remanufacture the battery, insert foreign objects into it, or
immerse or expose it to water or other liquids. Doing so may lead to fire, explosion, or
other hazards.
 If the battery leaks, ensure that the electrolyte does not make direct contact with your
skins or eyes. If the electrolyte touches your skins or splashes into your eyes,
immediately flush with clean water and consult a doctor.
 In case of battery deformation, color change, or overheating while charging or storing,
immediately stop using the device and remove the battery. Continued use may lead to
battery leakage, fire, or explosion.
 Do not put batteries in fire as they may explode. Damaged batteries may also explode.
 Dispose of used batteries in accordance with local regulations. Improper battery use
may lead to fire, explosion, or other hazards.
 Do not allow children or pets to bite or suck the battery. Doing so may result in damage
or explosion.
 Do not smash or pierce the battery, or expose it to high external pressure. Doing so may
lead to a short circuit or overheating.
 Do not drop the device or battery. If the device or battery is dropped, especially on a
hard surface, it may be damaged.

and benzene) to clean the device or accessories. These substances may cause damage
to parts or present a fire hazard. Use a clean, soft, and dry cloth to clean the device and
accessories.
 Do not place magnetic stripe cards, such as credit cards and phone cards, near the
device for extended periods of time. Otherwise the magnetic stripe cards may be
damaged.
 Do not dismantle or remanufacture the device and its accessories. This voids the
warranty and releases the manufacturer from liability for damage. In case of damage,
contact an authorized service center for assistance or repair.
 If the device screen is broken in a collision, immediately stop using the device. Do not
touch or attempt to remove the broken parts. Promptly contact an authorized service
