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, buy a new battery. Use only Nokia approved batteries,
and recharge your battery only with Nokia approved chargers designated for this device.
Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when not in use. Do not leave the battery connected to a charger.
Overcharging may shorten its lifetime. If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose its charge over time. Temperature extremes
can affect the ability of your battery to charge.
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! 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.
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
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.
4. Confirm that the 20 digit code is valid by following the instructions at www.nokia.com/batterycheck.
You should receive a message indicating whether the code can be authenticated.
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.
