PRODUCT COMPOSITION (cont'd)
What powers this tiny DVD player?..
You will have two power options. If you have access to a local power
outlet say in a hotel room, you can use the power adapter or if you are
on the road with no local power source, you can use the included 7.4 volt
4400MAh rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. The battery life is approximately
3 hours which should get you through a couple of movies or a really long
one like Titanic or Lord of the Rings.
All that is needed to install the battery is to push it into the top
of the player and slide to the left to lock it in place. Charging of the
battery is as easy as plugging in the adapter into the wall. The internal
charger will automatically sense when the charge is complete, and turn
off for you.
And last, but not least is the included case. Remember, this unit is
built to be portable and relatively light. Although it's not built out
of eggshells, the unit will need protection during transport.
Slipping the player into the case will protect it from small bumps and
scratches and will protect your investment.
Just as a bonus photo, I decided to show you just how compact this unit
really is. The unit fits into my laptop accessory bag with ease and will
allow you to bring you player onto a flight and make all your fellow passengers
EXTREMELY jealous. I know that if I was stuck reading those stupid emergency
plan guide on a flight for three hours and I saw a person watching a DVD,
I would wish that I could change seats even to be closer so that I could
also view the movie. Hey, if you have a set of headphones, the unit has
two headphone out jacks so two people can view the movie in silence at
the same time.
