15. Reference information
This section provides information about your phone batteries, enhancements,
chargers, safety guidelines, and technical information. Be aware that the information
in this section is subject to change as batteries, chargers, and enhancements change.
■ Batteries and chargers
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.
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 and
then disconnect and reconnect it to start the charging.
Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when not in use. Do not
leave 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
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 three 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 on the label,
you should see the Nokia connecting hands
symbol from one angle and the Nokia Original
Enhancements logo when looking from
2. When you angle the hologram left, right, down,
and up, you should see 1, 2, 3, and 4 dots on each
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. 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 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.
