Note: The upper battery is the illumination battery. The lower battery provides power for all other functions.

Note: The 1.2V NiMh rechargeable battery for the backlight is not fully charged when shipped. For maximum efficiency it is recommended to charge the battery fully (place battery into display and display unit outside on a sunny day) before first use. Alternatively, the rechargeable battery can be charged with a NiMh battery charger.

Replace the battery compartment cover.
