Batteries and chargers

Battery and charger information

Your device is intended for use with a BL-5CB

rechargeable battery. Nokia may make

additional battery models available for this

device. Always use original Nokia batteries.

This device is intended for use when supplied

with power from the following chargers:

AC-3. The exact Nokia charger model number

may vary depending on the plug type,

identified by E, X, AR, U, A, C, K, or B.

The battery can be charged and discharged

hundreds of times, but it will eventually wear

out. When the talk and standby times are

noticeably shorter than normal, replace the


Battery safety

Always switch the device off and disconnect

the charger before removing the battery.

When you unplug a charger or an accessory,

hold and pull the plug, not the cord.

When your charger is not in use, unplug it

from the electrical plug and the device. Do

not leave a fully charged battery connected

to a charger, as overcharging may shorten

the battery’s lifetime. If left unused, a fully

charged battery will lose its charge over time.

Always keep the battery between 15°C and

25°C (59°F and 77°F). Extreme temperatures

reduce the capacity and lifetime of the

battery. A device with a hot or cold battery

may not work temporarily.

Accidental short-circuiting can happen when

a metallic object touches the metal strips on

the battery, for example, if you carry a spare

battery in your pocket. Short-circuiting may

damage the battery or the connecting object.

Do not dispose of batteries in a fire as they

may explode. Dispose of batteries according

to local regulations. Recycle when possible.

Do not dispose as household waste.

Do not dismantle, cut, open, crush, bend,

puncture, or shred cells or batteries. If a

battery leaks, do not let battery liquid touch

skin or eyes. If this happens, immediately

flush the affected areas with water, or seek

medical help.

Do not modify, remanufacture, attempt to

insert foreign objects into the battery, or

immerse or expose it to water or other

liquids. Batteries may explode if damaged.

Use the battery and charger for their

intended purposes only. Improper use, or use

of unapproved batteries or incompatible

chargers may present a risk of fire,

explosion, or other hazard, and may

invalidate any approval or warranty. If you

believe the battery or charger is damaged,

take it to a service centre for inspection

before continuing to use it. Never use a

damaged battery or charger. Only use the

charger indoors.

Additional safety information

Medical devices

Operation of radio transmitting equipment,

including wireless phones, may interfere with

the function of inadequately protected

medical devices. Consult a physician or the

manufacturer of the medical device to

determine whether they are adequately

shielded from external radio frequency


Implanted medical devices

Manufacturers of medical devices

recommend a minimum separation of 15.3


background image

centimetres (6 inches) between a wireless

device and an implanted medical device, such

as a pacemaker or implanted cardioverter

defibrillator, to avoid potential interference

with the medical device. Persons who have

such devices should:

Always keep the wireless device more

than 15.3 centimetres (6 inches) from the

medical device.

Not carry the wireless device in a breast


Hold the wireless device to the ear

opposite the medical device.

Turn the wireless device off if there is

any reason to suspect that interference is

taking place.

Follow the manufacturer directions for

the implanted medical device.

If you have any questions about using your

is completed.


Radio signals may affect improperly installed

or inadequately shielded electronic systems

in motor vehicles such as electronic fuel

injection, electronic antilock braking,

electronic speed control, and air bag

systems. For more information, check with

the manufacturer of your vehicle or its


Only qualified personnel should install the

device in a vehicle. Faulty installation or

service may be dangerous and may invalidate

your warranty. Check regularly that all

wireless device equipment in your vehicle is

mounted and operating properly. Do not

store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or

explosive materials in the same

compartment as the device, its parts, or

accessories. Remember that air bags inflate

with great force. Do not place your device or

accessories in the air bag deployment area.

Potentially explosive environments

Switch off your device in any area with a

potentially explosive atmosphere, for

example near gas pumps at service stations.

Sparks in such areas could cause an

explosion or fire resulting in bodily injury or

death. Observe restrictions in fuel service

stations, storage, and distribution areas;

chemical plants; or where blasting

operations are in progress. Areas with a

potentially explosive atmosphere are often,

but not always, clearly marked. They include

areas where you would be advised to turn off

your vehicle engine, below deck on boats,

chemical transfer or storage facilities and

where the air contains chemicals or particles

such as grain, dust, or metal powders. You

should check with the manufacturers of

vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such

as propane or butane) to determine if this

device can be safely used in their vicinity.

Certification information (SAR)

This mobile device meets guidelines for

exposure to radio waves.

Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and

receiver. It is designed not to exceed the

limits for exposure to radio waves

recommended by international guidelines.

These guidelines were developed by the

independent scientific organisation ICNIRP

and include safety margins designed to

assure the protection of all persons,

regardless of age and health.

The exposure guidelines for mobile devices

employ a unit of measurement known as the

Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR

limit stated in the ICNIRP guidelines is 2.0

watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over 10

grams of tissue. Tests for SAR are conducted

using standard operating positions with the

device transmitting at its highest certified

power level in all tested frequency bands.

The actual SAR level of an operating device

can be below the maximum value because

the device is designed to use only the power

required to reach the network. That amount

changes depending on a number of factors


background image

such as how close you are to a network base


The highest SAR value under the ICNIRP

guidelines for use of the device at the ear is

1.15 W/kg.

Use of device accessories may result in

different SAR values. SAR values may vary

depending on national reporting and testing

requirements and the network band.

Additional SAR information may be provided
