in a fire. They may explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal
When using the wireless LAN
Please heed the warning below.
· Do not turn on the PC's power in trains, aircraft, hospitals or other places where the use of
wireless LANs is restricted or prohibited. Use in such places may have an adverse effect
on the electronic devices or medical equipment and cause accidents. At present, the
policy of airline companies is to prohibit the use of electronic devices in aircraft at certain
stages of a flight (take-off and landing). This PC is classified as an "electronic device." For
further details, contact the airline companies.
Radio waves emitted from wireless LANs
Please heed the warning below.
· Do not use the wireless LAN in trains full of passengers and other crowded locations.

Mobile mini note PC with Radio Local Area Network (RLAN)
OPERATING AT 2412 TO 2462 MHz
· This equipment with RLAN is intended to be used in Germany, UK, Austria and Switzerland.
Outdoor use may be restricted to certain frequencies and/or may require a licence for operation.
Hereby, JVC declares that this MP-XP731GB is in compliance with the essential requirements

Lithium-ion is vulnerable in colder temperatures.
DANGER! Do not attempt to take the batteries apart, or expose them to flame or excessive heat, as it may
cause a fire or explosion.
WARNING! Do not allow the battery or its terminals to come in contact with metals, as this can result in a
short circuit and possibly start a fire.
Caution! Danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent
The Benefits Of Lithium-Ion Batteries
Lithium-ion battery packs are small but have a large power capacity. However, when one is exposed to cold
temperatures (below 10°C), its usage time becomes shorter and it may cease to function. If this happens, place the
battery pack in your pocket or other warm, protected place for a short time, then re-attach it to the Mobile mini
note PC. As long as the battery pack itself is not cold, it should not affect performance.
(If you're using a heating pad, make sure the battery pack does not come in direct contact with it.)
General Battery Precautions
