POCKETRAK C24 Owner’s Manual
• If you notice battery leakage, discoloration,
deformation, or any strange smell, immediately
remove the battery from the device and stop operating,
and also keep away from fire.
If you continue operating the device, it could cause battery fire,
explosion, electrolyte blowout, or smoke. If a leaking battery is
close to a source of flame, the battery electrolyte could catch fire,
resulting in battery fire, explosion, electrolyte blowout, or smoke.
• Do not leave the battery installed for an extended time.
If the battery runs out, or if the device is not to be used for a long
time (about one week), remove the battery from the device and
keep it in a dry and cool place to prevent possible leakage of the
• Do not deform, disassemble, or modify the battery.
Any modifications such as deformation, disassembly, or
soldering directly to the battery terminals may cause ignition,
explosion, and leakage or ejection of the electrolyte.
• Do not allow a wire to connect the positive and
negative terminals, and do not carry or store the
battery together with metallic objects such as a
necklaces or hairpins.
Doing so may short-circuit the battery, causing excessive current
to flow, and possibly resulting in ignition, explosion, and leakage
or ejection of the electrolyte. This may also cause the wire or
necklace to heat up.
• Do not throw the battery into a fire, heat it, or expose it
to the sunlight for a long time.
Doing so may melt the insulation, impair the safety mechanism,
or ignite the electrolyte, causing ignition or explosion.
• Do not peel off or damage the external covering.
Peeling off the external covering, piercing it with a nail or sharp
object, striking it with a hammer, or stepping on it may cause a
short-circuit within the battery, causing ignition, explosion,
leakage or ejection of the electrolyte, or overheating.
• Insert the battery as instructed.
Always make sure the battery is inserted in conformity with the
+/- polarity markings. Failure to do so might cause abnormal
electric current flow in the battery, resulting in fire, explosion,
leakage or ejection of the electrolyte, or overheating in use.
• Be sure to use the specified battery.
Do not replace the battery with any battery other than the one
specified (the same type or equivalent). Otherwise, the battery
may ignite or explode, the battery liquid may spout or leak, or the
unit may heat up.
• Do not leave the battery within reach of children.
A child may swallow the battery accidentally. Also, leaking
battery liquid may cause chemical reaction or inflammation. If a
child swallows the battery accidentally, consult a doctor
• Do not remove the battery while the device is in use.
Do not remove the battery while the device is being used. Doing
so could corrupt the data or cause malfunctions.
• Check the battery capacity before recording or deleting
If the remaining battery capacity indication should run low during
recording, immediately stop recording, and install a fresh battery.
If the battery becomes exhausted during deletion, it will be
impossible to delete the recorded material.
If the battery fluid leaks
If the battery does leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the
battery fluid should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, skin, or
clothes, wash immediately with water and consult a doctor.
Battery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or
chemical burns. Also if your skin should become inflamed when
contacted by battery fluid, consult a doctor.
