A fully charged battery can last one to two weeks (depending on usage, particularly how often Wi-Fi is used). The battery may drain quicker due to the following reasons:
  • The battery didn't charge completely.

    Note:

    Press the (home) button to display the battery icon in the top right corner of the home menu. When the icon changes from charging to 100%, the battery is fully charged.

  • The Digital Paper was used in a location where the temperature is lower than 5 °C (41°F). This is not a malfunction.
  • The Digital Paper is in sleep mode.

    Note:

    Turn the power completely off when not in use.

  • If the Digital Paper is powered off and not used for an extended period of time, the battery will drain. Charge the Digital Paper before use.
  • Turn off the Wi-Fi function when the network features aren't being used.
    1. Press the home button.
    2. Tap Settings.
    3. Tap Wi-Fi to remove the check mark.
  • Turn off the Bluetooth function when you aren't using it.
    • Press the home button.
    • Tap Settings.
    • Tap Bluetooth to remove the check mark.
  • If your Digital Paper is connected to a computer that is in sleep mode, standby mode, or hibernation, the battery will drain without charging. Make sure that the computer doesn't enter a sleep or hibernation mode.
  • Battery life varies depending on frequency of use, device settings, and usage environment. Under the following conditions, the battery will drain more quickly.
    • Frequent handwriting.
    • Frequent highlighting.
    • Frequently searching for documents.
    • Displaying documents which contain large image files.
    • Using the Digital Paper while Wi-Fi is set to On or setting up the Wi-Fi connection to remain connected during sleep mode.
      • Selecting Wi-Fi Settings within Settings.
      • Then leaving the display on Saved Network List.
  • Using the Digital Paper while Bluetooth is set to On or setting up the Bluetooth connection to remain during sleep mode.
  • Avoid laying the stylus across the surface of the display: doing so can drain the battery at a high rate (five times).
