Do not operate the unit with a damaged cord. Do not operate the unit if the unit itself has been dropped or damaged. Always keep the metal contacts clean. Do not disassemble or convert the unit. While in use, it is normal for the unit to get warm. Keep the unit away from TV or AM receivers, because it can disturb TV

When transporting the unit, detach the holder. If there are any dust or dirt particles on the port replicator connector,

your personal computer may not be able to detect the port replicator when it is connected (even if the particles are invisible to the eye). If the connection seems to be poor, remove the AC power adapter and battery and wipe off the connector and the area around it on both the personal computer and port replicator. Commercial air dusters are also effective for blowing away residual dust and dirt. Be careful not to damage the connectors while cleaning them.
