Getting Started

Follow the steps in this section to print your first label.

Connecting the Power

The label maker is powered by a rechargeable, lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery pack. To save power, the label maker automatically turns off after two minutes of inactivity. Remove the battery pack if the label maker will not be used for a long period of time.

Inserting the Battery Pack

The battery pack included with your label maker comes partially charged. For best performance, fully charge the battery as soon as possible.

Make sure the charging adapter is disconnected before handling the Li-ion battery pack.

To insert the battery pack

  1. Slide the battery compartment cover away from the label maker. See Figure 2.
  2. Insert the battery pack into the battery compartment.
  3. Replace the battery compartment cover.

Make sure to read the Li-ion Safety Precautions.

Recharging the Battery Pack

A charging adapter is included with your label maker for recharging the battery pack. Charging the battery pack will take approximately three hours; however, after charging for about 10 minutes, the label maker can be used to print labels.

The charging adapter is only used for recharging the battery pack; the charging adapter cannot be used to power the label maker.

To recharge the battery pack

  1. Plug the charging adapter into the power connector on the top of the label maker.
  2. Plug the other end of the charging adapter into a power outlet. See Figure 3.

Removing the Battery

Remove the battery pack if the label maker will not be used for a long period of time. Make sure the charging adapter is disconnected before handling the Li-ion battery pack.

To remove the battery

  1. Unplug the charging adapter.
  2. Slide the battery compartment cover away from the label maker. See Figure 2.
  3. Remove the battery from the battery compartment.
