Charging Your Batteries
If you intend to use battery power, be sure to fully charge your battery 
pack before going on long trips. Remember that the power adapter 
charges the battery pack as long as it is plugged into the computer and an 
AC power source. Be aware that it takes much longer to charge the battery 
pack when the Eee PC is in use.
Remember to fully charge the battery (8 hours or more) before first use 
and whenever it is depleted to prolong battery life. The battery reaches its 
maximmum capacity after a few full charging and discharging cycles.
Airplane Precautions
Contact your airline if you want to use the Eee PC on the airplane. Most 
airlines have restrictions for using electronic devices. Most airlines allow 
electronic use only between and not during takeoffs and landings.
There are three main types of airport security devices: X-ray 
machines (used on items placed on conveyor belts), magnetic 
detectors (used on people walking through security checks), and 
magnetic wands (hand-held devices used on people or individual 
items). You can send your Eee PC and diskettes through airport X-ray 
machines. However, it is recommended that you do not send your 
Eee PC or diskettes through airport magnetic detectors or expose 
them to magnetic wands.
