Product Information

medical devices. While most modern electronic equipment is shielded from external RF
signals, if in doubt, check with the manufacturer. For personal medical devices (such as
pacemakers and hearing aids), consult your doctor or the manufacturer to determine
whether they are adequately shielded from external RF signals.

Steps to Minimise Interference

If your Kindle does cause interference to radio or television reception (which you can
determine by turning your Kindle off and on), you can try to correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures: reorient or relocate the receiving antenna for the radio
or television; increase the separation between the radio or television and your Kindle;
connect equipment and receivers to different outlets; or consult the radio or television
manufacturer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Look Out For Signs

There are some places where RF signals could constitute a hazard, such as health-care
facilities and construction sites. If you are not sure, look around for signs indicating that
two-way radios or mobile phones should be turned off.

In addition, turn off and do not charge your device if you are in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere, as sparks in such areas could cause an explosion or fire. Such areas
are usually, but not always, clearly identified, and include areas where you would normally
be advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
