LITHIUM BATTERY
Replacement Procedure
1. There is a Lithium battery on the BACK CONNECT C.B.A.
2. Unsolder the Lithium battery and then replace with the new one.
NOTE:
The lithium battery is a critical component.
It must never be subjected to excessive heat of discharge.
It must therefore only be fitted in equipment designed specifically for its use.
Replacement batteries must be of the same type and manufacture.
They must be fitted in the same manner and location as the original battery, with the correct polarity contacts observed.
Do not attempt to re-charge the old battery or re-use it for any other purpose.
It should be disposed of in waste products destined for burial rather than incineration.
