CAUTION

LASER RADIATION. DO NOT STARE INTO THE BEAM OR VIEW DIRECTLY WITH OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS. CLASS I LASER PRODUCT.

NEVER POINT A LASER BEAM INTO A PERSON’S EYES OR VIEW A LASER BEAM DIRECTLY, AS PROLONGED EXPOSURE CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO THE EYES.

MOMENTARY EXPOSURE FROM A LASER POINTER, SUCH AS AN INADVERTENT SWEEP OF THE LIGHT ACROSS A PERSON'S EYES, MAY CAUSE TEMPORARY FLASH BLINDNESS SIMILAR TO THE EFFECT OF A CAMERA FLASH BULB. ALTHOUGH THIS CONDITION IS TEMPORARY, IT CAN BECOME MORE DANGEROUS IF THE EXPOSED PERSON IS ENGAGED IN A VISION-CRITICALACTIVITY SUCH AS DRIVING.

Charging the Batteries

For best results, you should charge the mouse at least 8 hours before using it. You can do this via the supplied USB charge cable. To do this:

1Connect the cable’s USB connector into an available USB port on your computer

2Connect the other end to the mouse.

NOTE: TO CONTINUOUSLY CHARGE THE MOUSE VIA THEUSB CHARGE CABLE, YOUR COMPUTER MUST BE ON AND AWAKE. FOR BEST RESULTS, TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTERS POWER MANAGEMENT FEATURE WHILE CHARGING THE MOUSE.

Establishing a Communications Link

The mouse has 256 identification codes that allow the mouse and its receiver to operate without interference from other radio frequency devices.

After your computer detects the USB receiver and the driver is installed, you must establish a communications link between the mouse and its receiver BEFORE you can use the mouse. To establish this link, you need to set the identification code so that the mouse works properly. To do this, follow the instructions below:

Make sure that your computer is turned on and has detected the USB receiver before you establish a communications link.

Operating Hints

For optimal performance and RF reception:

Place the receiver at least 20cm away from all electrical devices, such as your monitor, speakers or external storage devices.

If necessary, use the supplied extension cable to keep the receiver away from the computer. Plug the receiver into the extension cable, and the extension cable to the computer.

Avoid using the mouse on a metal surface. Metals, such as iron, aluminum or copper, shield the radio frequency transmission and may slow down the mouse’s response time or cause the mouse to fail temporarily.

The mouse will enter a suspend mode at the same time your computer does. To activate the mouse, simply move the mouse.

If your computer has a metal case that contains aluminum or magnesium, use the mouse to the side. The display panel may interfere with the radio frequency signal if you use the mouse directly in front of the computer.

Never use the mouse on a glass or mirrored surface as these surfaces will cause the mouse to fail temporarily.

To maximize battery life, use the mouse on a white, or light colored surface. Dark surfaces cause the mouse’s light emitter diode (LED) light to glow brighter, which causes the battery to discharge more rapidly.

Comfortable Usage

Research suggests that physical discomfort and injury to nerves, tendons, and muscles may be related to repetitive motion, an improperly set up work area, incorrect body posture, and poor work habits.

To reduce the risk of injury, follow these precautions:

Stand, stretch, and move around several times every hour.

Switch hands while performing tasks. Use shortcut keys to avoid repetitive or awkward mouse movements.

Relax your shoulders and keep your elbows at your sides. Adjust the keyboard’s position so that you don’t have to stretch to reach it.

Adjust your position so that you don’t have to bend your wrists to type; avoid placing your wrists on a sharp edge.

If you feel discomfort or numbness in your hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, or back while typing, consult a qualified medical professional.

Troubleshooting

What do I do if the mouse does not work?

Make sure that the polarity of the batteries is correct. The positive (+) and negative (-)ends of each battery must match the positive (+) and negative(-)connections in the battery housing.
