1.3. Battery Notes

If you've owned a PalmPilot for more than a month or so, you've already discovered one of its most delicious features: you simply don't have to worry about power. A pair of AAA batteries lasts many people six weeks or more, and the Palm V's permanent lithium ion battery is charging whenever the palmtop is in its HotSync cradle. There is a quick, easy way to check your current batteries' remaining juice—just tap the Applications button to view a "fuel gauge" of remaining power—but most people don't bother. On the PalmPilot, batteries last so long that the feeling of "battery deadline panic," well known to laptop computer users, simply doesn't exist.

When you do need to change your batteries, look at the back of the machine. You'll see the battery-compartment panel just below the midline (on all models except the Palm V, of course). Press the latch with your thumb, remove the panel, and change the batteries.
