13. Battery information
This section provides information about batteries, chargers, safety guidelines and
technical information. Be aware that the information in this section is subject to
change as batteries and chargers change.
■ Charging and discharging batteries
Your device is powered by a rechargeable battery. The full performance of a new
battery is achieved only after two or three complete charge and discharge cycles.
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. Use only Nokia approved batteries, and recharge your battery
only with Nokia approved chargers designated for this device.
Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when not in use. Do not
leave a fully charged battery connected to a charger, since overcharging may shorten
its lifetime. If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose its charge over time.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Never use any charger or battery
that is damaged.
Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short-circuiting can occur when a
metallic object such as a coin, clip, or pen causes direct connection of the
positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of the battery. (These look like metal strips
on the battery.) This might happen, for example, when you carry a spare battery
in your pocket or purse. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the battery
or the connecting object.
Leaving the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer or winter
conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery and its ability to
charge. Always try to keep the battery between 59°F and 77°F (15°C and 25°C). A
device with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily, even when the battery
is fully charged. Battery performance is particularly limited in temperatures well
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire, as they may explode. Batteries may also explode
if damaged. Dispose of batteries according to local regulations. Please recycle
when possible. Do not dispose as household waste.

■ Nokia battery authentication guidelines
Always use original Nokia batteries for your safety. To check that you are getting an
original Nokia battery, purchase it from an authorized Nokia dealer, look for the
Nokia Original Enhancements logo on the packaging and inspect the hologram
label using the following steps:
Successful completion of the four steps is not a total assurance of the authenticity
of the battery. If you have any reason to believe that your battery is not an authentic
original Nokia battery, you should refrain from using it and take it to the nearest
authorized Nokia service point or dealer for assistance. Your authorized Nokia
service point or dealer will inspect the battery for authenticity.
If authenticity cannot be verified, return the battery to the place of purchase.
1. When looking at the hologram label, you should see
the Nokia connecting hands symbol from one angle
and the Nokia Original Enhancements logo when
looking from another angle.
2. When you angle the hologram to the left, right, down,
and up sides of the logo, you should see 1, 2, 3, and 4
dots on each side respectively.
3. Scratch the side of the label to reveal a 20-digit
code, for example, 12345678919876543210. Turn
the battery so that the numbers are facing upwards.
The 20-digit code reads starting from the number
at the top row followed by the bottom row.
4. Confirm that the 20-digit code is valid by following
the instructions at www.nokia.com/batterycheck.

What if your battery is not authentic?
If you cannot confirm that your Nokia battery with the hologram label is an authentic
Nokia battery, please do not use the battery. Take it to the nearest authorized Nokia
service point or dealer for assistance. The use of a battery that is not approved by the
manufacturer may be dangerous and may result in poor performance and damage to
your device and its enhancements. It may also invalidate any approval or warranty
applying to the device.
