INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your Talking Alarm Clock requires two AA batteries (not supplied) for power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

1.Slide the battery compartment cover on the back of the clock in the direction of the arrow to remove it.

2.Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

3.Replace the cover.

Notes:

When you install new batteries, the clock starts at 12:00 am.

If nothing appears on the display, make sure the batteries are fresh and installed properly.

If the display begins to dim, the voice or alarm sounds warped, or the clock stops operating properly, replace the batteries.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the clock for a month, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
