19. Battery and charger information
Your device is powered by a rechargeable battery. The battery intended for use with this
device is BL-5F. This device is intended for use when supplied with power from the following
chargers: AC-4, AC-5, AC-6, AC-8 or DC-4 chargers. 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. Use of an unapproved battery or charger may present a risk of fire, explosion,
leakage, or other hazard.
If a 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, then disconnect and reconnect it to

begin charging the battery. If the battery is completely discharged, it may take several
minutes before the charging indicator appears on the display or before any calls can be
Always switch the device off and disconnect the charger before removing the battery.
Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the device when not in use. Do not leave a
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.
Always try to keep the battery between 15°C and 25°C (59°F and 77°F). Extreme
temperatures reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery. A device with a hot or cold
battery may not work temporarily. Battery performance is particularly limited in
temperatures well below freezing.
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.
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.
Do not dismantle, cut, open, crush, bend, deform, puncture, or shred cells or batteries. In the
event of a battery leak, do not allow the liquid to come in contact with the skin or eyes. In
the event of such a leak, flush your skin or eyes immediately with water, or seek medical
Do not modify, remanufacture, attempt to insert foreign objects into the battery, or immerse
or expose it to water or other liquids.
Improper battery use may result in a fire, explosion, or other hazard. If the device or battery
is dropped, especially on a hard surface, and you believe the battery has been damaged, take
it to a service centre for inspection before continuing to use it.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Never use any charger or battery that is
damaged. Keep your battery out of the reach of small children.
