SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND WARNINGS
- You must read these safety instructions and warnings before charging your batteries.
- Lithium Polymer and Li-ion batteries are volatile. Failure to read and follow the below instructions may result in fire, personal injury and damage to property if charged or used improperly.
- Never make wrong polarity connection when charging and discharging battery packs. Always double check polarity of battery's connector to make sure "+" to "+" and "-" to "-".
- Do not mix and use old batteries and new batteries, or batteries with different brand names.
- Lithium batteries has it's cycle life, please replace old battery with new one when it reaches it's service life or when it is two year old, whichever comes first.
- When charging Battery Pack, please put battery in a fire proof container. Please don't leave the X729 on the wood material or carpet and unattended.

How to Power
- Please use 6-24 power adapter with DC5521 jack to power via X729 DC port.
Important Note: Please use a high quality power supply with surge protection and overvoltage protection!!! Otherwise it is easy to burn the DC chip!
Recommend to use Geekworm DC5521 12V/5A Power adapter US/EU plug
Warning about power supply:
- Don't use that adjustable voltage power supply.
- Don't use the same power supply used on LED strips.
The above two are absolute garbage power supply, can not be used!!!
