How do I charge the NiMH battery that comes with the WS-510M?
The AAA NiMH BR401 battery that comes with the WS-510M can be charged inside the recorder while the device is connected to a USB port on a computer via the recorder’s built-in USB connector. To charge the battery while it is in the recorder, slide out the USB connector and, while pressing the [STOP] button, connect it to the computer’s USB port. Below are some details about charging the battery: • The battery cannot be charged when the computer is not turned on or while the computer is in a standby mode. • The recorder should be connected directly to the computer, preferably to a rear port where the USB current is more likely to be highest. The bundled USB extension cable may be used to more conveniently connect to a rear port. Do not connect the device to a USB hub, as hubs split up the current to the USB ports. • If Cannot charge is displayed, it means the wrong type of battery (such as an alkaline battery) is in the recorder. The bundled NiMH battery is the one that must be used. •
