Getting Started
CHARGING THE BATTERY
The battery of your Device is not fully charged as you unpack it, so you
need to charge it. When charging for the first time, we recommend
charging the device for 8 to 12 hours when off. Full charging will
subsequently take 2,5 to 3 hours. It’s strongly recommended to keep
the Device off during the first charge, otherwise power consumption
could be more, than charging, especially when you charge it from PC.
Follow next steps to charge the battery:
1. Make sure the Device is off. In opposite case, press On/Off button
for a few seconds and select Power Off in menu appeared. The Device
will shut down.
2. Connect your Device to power supply or computer using the mi-
croUSB cable included in package.
• Connect a USB cable to the jack of the Device:
ATTENTION! Incorrect connection of the USB cable can seriously damage the
Device. Damages of the Device, caused by incorrect connection, aren’t covered by
warranty.
• While the USB cable is connected, the Device should be near to
PC/charger.
NOTE It’s recommended to charge the battery using the charging device. In case if
you charge the battery from PC, it’s better to keep the Device off, because power
consumption could be more, than charging.

Certification information (SAR) The device meets guidelines for expo-
sure to radio waves
Your device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the
limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines.
These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization
ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all per-
sons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure guidelines for devices employ a unit of measurement known as
the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the ICNIRP guide-
lines is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over 10 grams of tissue. Tests for
SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmit-
ting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands.
This equipment complies with the European Council Recommendation of 12
July 1999 on the Limitation of Exposure of the General Public to Electromag-
netic Fields [1999/519/EC].47
