CHAPTER 2 - WORKING WITH YOUR PDA

USING THE AC/DC ADAPTER

Your new Royal PDA is equipped with a rich feature set and large memory for storing data. As with all PDA’s, which offer this level of performance and large data storage capability, the power demands are greater than traditional entry-level PDA’s or organizers. For this reason, Royal includes an AC adapter accessory, which can be the primary power source for your Royal PDA.

Note: Always turn the PDA off before unplugging or plugging in the AC/DC adapter.

USING BATTERIES - PDA WITH BUILT-IN MODEM

Royal’s PDA with a built-in modem comes standard with a sealed rechargeable battery. When this PDA is being used for the first time you must fully charge the batteries by plugging in the AC adapter for a minimum of 5 hours before using the PDA.

USING BATTERIES - PDA WITHOUT BUILT-IN MODEM

Royal’s PDA without the built-in modem can run on (2) AAA alkaline batteries. Battery life will vary depending on usage. Additionally, Royal offers a rechargeable battery pack accessory for the unit. We strongly suggest you consider purchasing the Royal rechargeable battery pack from your retailer or by contacting Royal directly at 888-261-4555.

4

Using Rechargeable Batteries

Your Royal PDA unit without built-in modem can only use the Royal rechargeable battery pack that is sold separately. This battery pack is a sealed, self-contained cartridge. This cartridge replaces the AAA alkaline cartridge which is factory-installed in your PDA. To use the Royal rechargeable battery pack, remove the AAA alkaline cartridge and replace it with the Royal rechargeable cartridge.

Before using the rechargeable battery pack for the first time, you must fully charge the batteries. Please see the instructions that come with the Royal rechargeable battery pack for charging requirements.

Before using the rechargeable battery cartridge for the first time, you must charge it for 5 hours..

Note: The unit will not charge any other battery.

AAA Battery Installation And Replacement

To insure the maximum protection of data stored in the PDA, we recommend the following procedure be followed when replacing the AAA batteries.

1.Turn the PDA off.

2.Plug in the AC adapter to maintain data during battery replacement.

3.Remove the battery cover, located on the back of the unit, by pressing the hinge down and pulling the battery cover open.

3.Insert the two new AAA batteries, following the signs inside the battery cartridge compartment.

4.Carefully place the battery cover in its place and press the cover gently into its location until cover is locked in position

Note: Always turn the PDA off before unplugging or plugging in the AC/DC adapter.

DO NOT APPLY UNNECCESARY FORCE WHEN REMOVING OR REPLACING THE BATTERY COVER. THE COVER SHOULD EASILY FIT INTO ITS PLACE IN THE BACK OF THE UNIT.

Note: Do not try to operate or synchronize the PDA with a low battery; this data can be corrupted or lost.

Note: Battery voltages are constantly monitored. A low battery warning message will show when the power level gets too low. Replace the AAA batteries or recharge the rechargeable batteries when this message is displayed.

The data that has been synchronized to the computer can be restored to the PDA by synchronizing again. For detailed software use instructions, see the “Instruction Files” provided with the synchronization software.
