13. Battery information

Charging and discharging

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 approved
batteries, and recharge your battery only with approved
chargers designated for this device. Contact Verizon Wireless
for an approved list of batteries and chargers.

If a replacement battery is being used for the first time or if
the battery has not been used for a prolonged period, it may
be necessary to connect the charger then disconnect and
reconnect it to begin charging the battery.

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.

If the battery is completely discharged, it may take a few
minutes before the charging indicator appears on the display
or before any calls can be made.

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. Always try to keep the battery
between 15°C and 25°C (59°F and 77°F). 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 below freezing.

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.

Authenticate hologram

1. When looking at the hologram

on the 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

left, right, down, and up, 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,
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

What if your battery is not authentic?

If you cannot confirm that your Nokia battery with the hologram
on the 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.
