BATTERY AND POWER MANAGEMENT
The R500 runs for 12 months on a single AAA battery. When your battery is low, the R500 goes into a 'power-saving' mode – disabling the laser to extend battery life so you can continue presenting for an extra week.
NOTE: Battery life may vary on user and computing conditions.
CHECK YOUR BATTERY STATUS:
Press and hold the laser button:
- If the LED is steady white, then the battery is good.
- If the LED is pulsing red, the battery is low and the laser is disabled to save power
|Steady white||Battery is good|
|Blinking rapidly white||Device is attempting to pair using Bluetooth|
|Pulsing red||Low battery, laser is disabled to save power|
SMART POWER MANAGEMENT
The R500 automatically goes into deep sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity.
To prevent draining the battery when not used or when traveling, the R500 will instantly go to deep sleep if not connected to a computer. The laser will also be automatically stopped after a continuous press of 2 minutes.
