battery use & safety

Most battery issues arise from improper handling of batteries, and particularly
from the continued use of damaged batteries.

• Don’t disassemble, crush, puncture, shred, or otherwise attempt to change

the form of your battery.

• Don’t let the phone or battery come in contact with water. Water can get into

the phone’s circuits, leading to corrosion. If the phone and/or battery get wet, have
them checked by your carrier or contact Motorola, even if they appear to be working

• Don’t allow the battery to touch metal objects. If metal objects, such as jewelry,

stay in prolonged contact with the battery contact points, the battery could become
very hot.

• Don’t place your battery near a heat source. Excessive heat can damage the

phone or the battery. High temperatures can cause the battery to swell, leak, or
malfunction. Therefore:

Do not dry a wet or damp battery with an appliance or heat source, such as a hair

dryer or microwave oven.

Avoid leaving your phone in your car in high temperatures.


• Do avoid dropping the battery or phone. Dropping these items, especially on a

hard surface, can potentially cause damage.

• Do contact your service provider or Motorola if your phone or battery has

been damaged from dropping or high temperatures.

To aid consumers in identifying authentic Motorola batteries from
non-original or counterfeit batteries (that may not have adequate safety protection),
Motorola provides holograms on its batteries. Consumers should confirm that any battery
they purchase has a “Motorola Original” hologram.
Motorola recommends you always use Motorola-branded batteries and
Motorola mobile devices are designed to work with Motorola batteries. If you
see a message on your display such as Invalid Battery or Unable to Charge, take the
following steps:

Remove the battery and inspect it to confirm that it has a “Motorola Original”


If there is no hologram, the battery is not a Motorola battery;
If there is a hologram, replace the battery and retry charging it;
If the message remains, contact a Motorola Authorized Service Center.

Important: Motorola’s warranty does not cover damage to the phone caused by non-
Motorola batteries and/or chargers.
Warning: Use of a non-Motorola battery or charger may present a risk of fire, explosion,
leakage, or other hazard.
Proper battery disposal is not only important for safety, it benefits the environment.
Consumers may recycle their used batteries in many retail or service provider locations.
Additional information on proper disposal and recycling may be found on the Web:

(in English only)

Disposal: Promptly dispose of used batteries in accordance with local
regulations. Contact your local recycling center or national recycling
organizations for more information on how to dispose of batteries.

Warning: Never dispose of batteries in a fire because they may explode.

Specific Absorption Rate Data

SAR Data

This model wireless phone meets the government’s requirements for
exposure to radio waves.

Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured
not to exceed limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government and by the Canadian
regulatory authorities. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based on

standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and
thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The standards include a substantial safety margin
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age or health.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC and by the Canadian
regulatory authorities is 1.6 W/kg.


Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating

positions accepted by the FCC and by Industry Canada with the phone transmitting at its
highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined
at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can
be well below the maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at
multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general,
the closer you are to a wireless base station, the lower the power output.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public in the U.S. and Canada, it must be
tested and certified to the FCC and Industry Canada that it does not exceed the limit
established by each government for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and
locations (e.g., at the ear and worn on the body) reported to the FCC and available for review
by Industry Canada. The highest SAR value for this model phone when tested for use at the
ear is


W/kg, and when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is


W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon

available accessories and regulatory requirements).


While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the governmental requirements for safe exposure. Please note that
improvements to this product model could cause differences in the SAR value for later
products; in all cases, products are designed to be within the guidelines.
Additional information on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) can be found on the Cellular
Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) Web site:
or the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) Web site:

1. In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is

1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial
margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for any variations in

Safety and General Information

Safety Information

This section contains important information on the safe and efficient operation of
your mobile device. Read this information before using your mobile device.

Exposure to

Radio Frequency

(RF) Energy

Your mobile device contains a transmitter and receiver. When it is ON, it receives and
transmits RF energy. When you communicate with your mobile device, the system handling
your call controls the power level at which your mobile device transmits.
Your Motorola mobile device is designed to comply with local regulatory requirements in
your country concerning exposure of human beings to RF energy.

Operational Precautions

For optimal mobile device performance, and to be sure that human exposure to RF energy
does not exceed the guidelines set forth in the relevant standards, always follow these
instructions and precautions.

Product Operation

When placing or receiving a phone call, hold your mobile device just like you would a
landline phone.
If you wear the mobile device on your body, always place the mobile device in a Motorola-
supplied or approved clip, holder, holster, case, or body harness. If you do not use a body-
worn accessory supplied or approved by Motorola, keep the mobile device and its antenna
at least 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) from your body when transmitting.
Using accessories not supplied or approved by Motorola may cause your mobile device to
exceed RF energy exposure guidelines. For a list of Motorola-supplied or approved
accessories, visit our Web site at:

RF Energy Interference/Compatibility

Nearly every electronic device is subject to RF energy interference from external sources if
inadequately shielded, designed, or otherwise configured for RF energy compatibility. In
some circumstances your mobile device may cause interference with other devices.

Follow Instructions to Avoid Interference Problems

Turn off your mobile device in any location where posted notices instruct you to do so.
In an aircraft, turn off your mobile device whenever instructed to do so by airline staff. If
your mobile device offers an airplane mode or similar feature, consult airline staff about
using it in flight.
