INSTALLING THE BATTERY

Your pager requires one AAA battery. For the best performance, we recommend an alkaline battery, such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23-555.

1.Slide the battery compartment lock up and slide the battery door in the direction of the arrow. The pager’s door hinges open. If you accidentally lift it so far that it pops off of the pager, simply snap it back into place.

2.Insert the battery’s positive end first, as indicated by the polarity symbol (+) marked outside the compartment.

3.Close the battery door and slide the battery compartment lock down to secure it.

Notes:

To conserve battery power, turn the pager off when you are not using it.

The battery should provide about 850 to 950 hours of continuous use.

A low battery alert sounds and the pager displays LO CELL when the battery’s power is low. When this occurs, replace the battery.

Notes:

To save battery power, all pager alerts change to 2 seconds in length when battery power is low.

When you replace the battery, the pager keeps all messages and the time and date.
