Installing the Battery Packs

The Extensa Notebook is shipped with a single battery pack that is inserted from the front left side of the computer. A second battery pack (option) can be installed in the removable Floppy/CD-ROM bay. Two switches that used to remove devices from the option bay are physically located on the bottom of the Notebook. The left-most switch controls removal of the Primary Battery Pack and the right-most switch controls removal of the device installed in the Floppy/CD-ROM/Secondary Battery bay.

To remove or replace the battery pack, follow the steps below.

  1. Save any data, then Power off the notebook. Disconnect the AC adapter if installed.
  2. Turn the notebook over and press the battery release switch while pressing outwards on the primary battery pack. Remove the battery from the Notebook.
  3. Insert a new or recharged battery pack into the battery compartment bay. Make sure that the contacts are facing up and to the rear of the compartment.

Caution: There is danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly re-^ ^ placed. Replace the battery only with the same or an equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions.

4. If installing a secondary battery pack, insert the battery pack into the front right side of the notebook until the battery pack clicks in place.
