Installing AA Batteries

Instead of the Lithium-Ion battery pack (Installing the Lithium-ion Battery), you can use four alkaline, NiMH, or lithium AA batteries with an optional AA battery pack (not included). This is useful when you are on the trail and cannot charge the Lithium-Ion battery pack. Use NiMH or lithium batteries for best results.

The AA battery pack contains two parts.

  1. If necessary, turn the D-ring counter-clockwise, and pull up to remove the battery pack from the device.
  2. Push down on the lever inside the AA battery pack Callout number one to separate the two parts Callout number two.
