13

Charging the battery

Your jukebox has a built-in Lithium-Ion battery. It is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery power each time. However, you may want to fully charge the battery to maximize playing time.

To charge the battery:

Connect the AC adapter to your jukebox’s power connector.

Plug the AC adapter into a wall outlet. As the battery charges, the battery icon on the LCD animates. When fully charged, the icon no longer animates and Battery Charging Complete is displayed on the LCD.

14

Important You can listen to your jukebox as it charges, but it will take longer to charge.
