USB Adapter

You must connect the Bluetooth USB Adapter to an available Universal Serial Bus (USB) port on your computer.

Note: Your USB Adapter is sensitive to static electricity, which can damage its delicate electrical components. Electrostatic charges can be acquired simply by dry weather conditions or they can occur when you walk across carpeted floors. To protect your device, always touch the metal chassis of your computer before handling the USB Adapter, or any internal computer component. This will ground a potential electrostatic discharge. Avoid touching the metal connector when handling the USB Adapter.

There are two ways to connect your USB Adapter:

1.Connect the USB Adapter directly to an available USB A-typeconnector on your desktop or notebook computer.

2.Connect the USB Adapter to the included USB base stand, and then connect the other end of the cable to an available USB A-typeconnector on your desktop or notebook computer. This is recommended for desktop computers.
