Important safety precautions

Use only approved batteries and chargers with your BlackBerry device. Use of batteries or chargers that have not been approved by Research In Motion might present a risk of fire or explosion, which could cause serious harm, death, or property loss.

Use only RIM approved holsters. Use of holsters that have not been approved by RIM might, in the long term, present a risk of serious harm.

When you wear the BlackBerry device close to your body, use a RIM approved holster with an integrated belt clip, or maintain a distance of 0.59 in. (15 mm) between your BlackBerry device and your body while the BlackBerry device is transmitting. Use of body-worn accessories, other than RIM approved holsters with an integrated belt clip, might cause your BlackBerry device to exceed radio frequency exposure standards if the accessories are worn on your body while the BlackBerry device is transmitting. The long term effects of exceeding radio frequency exposure standards might present a risk of serious harm.

Electrical safety

Charge the BlackBerry device using only the charging accessories provided by or specifically approved by Research In Motion for use with this BlackBerry device.

Approved charging accessory models for the BlackBerry Z10 device











































Use the charging accessories provided with the BlackBerry device or any other RIM approved charging accessories only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. Before you use any power supply, verify that the mains voltage is in accordance with the voltage printed on the power supply. Connect the BlackBerry device only to CTIA certified adapters, products that bear the USB-IF logo, or products that have completed the USB-IF compliance program.

Do not overload power outlets, extension cords, or convenience receptacles because this might result in a risk of fire or electric shock. To reduce the risk of damage to the cord or the plug, pull the plug rather than the cord when you disconnect the charging accessory from the power outlet or convenience receptacle.

Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where the power cord connects to the BlackBerry device. Unplug charging accessories during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. When you use your BlackBerry device with any charging accessories, ensure that you route the power cord in a way that reduces the risk of injury to others, such as tripping or choking. Do not use charging accessories outside or in any area exposed to the elements.

For more information about inserting the battery and connecting the power supply, see the documentation that came with your BlackBerry device.

Battery safety

Your BlackBerry device contains a removable lithium-ion battery.

The battery might present a fire or chemical burn hazard if mistreated. Do not attempt to insert foreign objects into the battery. Do not remanufacture, disassemble, modify, crush, or puncture the battery. If the battery has been remanufactured, disassembled, modified, crushed, or punctured, cease use of the battery immediately. Do not heat the battery above 140°F (60°C). Heating the battery above 140°F (60°C) could cause the battery to catch fire or explode. Do not short-circuit the battery or allow metallic or conductive objects to contact the battery terminals.

CAUTION: Use only the battery that Research In Motion specifies for use with your particular BlackBerry device model. RIM specifies batteries for use in BlackBerry devices in compliance with IEEE Std 1725. Using any other battery might invalidate any warranty provided with the BlackBerry device. In addition, there might be a risk of fire or explosion if you replace the battery with an incorrect battery type. Please ensure you dispose of used batteries according to the instructions set out in this safety information booklet.

Children should not handle batteries unless they are supervised by an adult.

When this icon appears on your BlackBerry device, the battery is not inserted correctly or

an invalid battery is inserted. If you inserted the battery that is specified for use with your particular BlackBerry device model, remove and reinsert the battery. If you inserted an invalid battery, remove it immediately and insert the battery that RIM specifies for use with your particular BlackBerry device model. Verify that the battery connectors align with the connectors on your BlackBerry device.

Driving and walking safely

Give your full attention to driving; driving safely is your first responsibility. You are responsible for knowing and obeying the laws and regulations regarding the use of wireless devices in the areas where you drive.

Research In Motion recommends that you do not use your BlackBerry device while you drive. Instead, consider having a passenger in the vehicle use your BlackBerry device for you, or find a safe location to stop your vehicle before you use your BlackBerry device.

Store your BlackBerry device safely before driving your vehicle. Do not use any charging accessory as a means of storing your BlackBerry device while you are in a vehicle. If your vehicle is equipped with an air bag, do not place your BlackBerry device or other objects above the air bag, or in the air bag deployment area. If in-vehicle wireless equipment is improperly stored or installed and the air bag inflates, serious injury could result.
