Battery and Safety Information

You must charge a battery before using it. For optimal battery life, charge the battery within three months of receipt.

Warning: Use only Monarch chargers (Monarch® 9462TM Single Station Charger or the Monarch® 9465TM Four Station Charger) designed for Lithium Ion batteries when charging. The battery might explode if placed on a different charger.

Take the battery out of the printer when storing the printer for a month or longer.

The optimal battery storage temperature is 50°F - 73°F (10°C - 23°C). For more information about storage temperatures, see Appendix A, “Specifications.” The battery may lose its charge capacity permanently if stored at temperatures less than 32°F (0°C) or greater than 104°F (40°C). For longest life, the battery should be stored in a cool, dry place.

The recommended temperature for charging is 68°F - 77°F (20°C - 25°C).

Charging time is approximately 1 to 3 hours.

Recycling Information - Do not throw in trash. Recycle to your local regulations. The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC®) is anon-profitorganization created to promote recycling of rechargeable batteries. For more information about how to recycle batteries in your area, visitwww.rbrc.org. Batteries can also be returnedpostage-paidto: ERC; 200 Monarch Lane Door #39; Miamisburg, OH 45342.

Getting Started 1-5

Note: Do not disassemble,short-circuit,heat above 80°C, or incinerate the battery. It may explode.

The battery should be charged immediately for long-termstorage, or after the battery has been exhausted from a printing session. Frequent charging will prolong battery life and has no negative effects.

Do not let the battery get wet or come into contact with metal objects.

Do not use a battery with a cracked case.

It is normal for battery capacity to decrease up to 20% over the first 300 cycles of use.

The printer uses battery power even when the printer is not printing. Remove the printer's battery and place it on a charger when the printer is not in use.

Many factors affect the battery's performance, including the quantity of labels printed, intervals of batches printed, percentage of black per label, and power management.
