Battery The lithium-polymer battery in Gibi should be replaced only by Gibi Technologies Inc. or a Gibi Authorized Service Provider, and must be recycled or disposed of separately from household waste. For information about battery recycling and replacement, go to getgibi.com/battery-recycling-and-replacement.

Charging and discharging The Gibi device is powered by a rechargeable battery. When the battery voltage drops below low battery threshold, the device needs to be charged. The battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times, but it will eventually wear out. Recharge Gibi device only with Gibi Technologies Inc. approved chargers designated for this Gibi device.

Unplug the charger from the electrical plug and the Gibi device when not in use. Do not leave a fully charged battery connected to a charger, since overcharging may shorten its lifetime. If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose its charge over time.

Never use any charger that is damaged. Leaving the Gibi device in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer or winter conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery.

Do not dispose the Gibi device in a fire as it may explode. Dispose of Gibi device according to local regulations. Do not dispose as household waste. Do not dismantle the device. In the event of a battery leak, do not allow the liquid to come in contact with the skin or eyes. In the event of such a leak, flush your skin or eyes immediately with water, or seek medical help

Prolonged heat exposure

Gibi device and its power adapter comply with applicable surface temperature standards and limits. However, even within these limits, sustained contact with warm surfaces for long periods of time may cause discomfort or injury. Use common sense to avoid situations where your skin or your pet’s skin is in contact with a device or its power adapter when it’s operating or plugged into a power source for long periods of time. For example, don’t sleep or place a device or power adapter under a blanket, pillow, or your body when it’s plugged into a power source. It’s important to keep Gibi device and its power adapter in a well-ventilated area when using or charging them. Take special care if you have a physical condition that affects your ability to detect heat against the body.

Radio signals

Gibi device uses radio signals to connect to wireless networks. For information about the amount of power used to transmit these signals, see www.getgibi.com/rfexposure.

Radio frequency interference

Observe signs and notices that prohibit or restrict the use of mobile phones (for example, in healthcare facilities or blasting areas). Although Gibi device is designed, tested, and manufactured to comply with regulations governing radio frequency emissions, such emissions from Gibi device can negatively affect the operation of other electronic equipment, causing them to malfunction. Turn off Gibi device or use Sleep Mode to turn off the Gibi device wireless transmitters when use is prohibited, such as while traveling in aircraft, or when asked to do so by authorities.

Medical devices

Gibi device contains radios that emit electromagnetic fields. These electromagnetic fields may interfere with pacemakers, defibrillators, or other medical devices. Maintain at least 6 inches (approximately 15 cm) of separation between your pacemaker or defibrillator and Gibi device. If you suspect Gibi device is interfering with your pacemaker or any other medical device, stop using Gibi device and consult your physician for information specific to your medical device.

Medical conditions

If you or your pet have any other medical condition that you believe could be affected by Gibi device (for example, seizures, blackouts, eyestrain, or headaches), consult with your physician or veterinarian prior to using Gibi device.

Explosive atmospheres

Do not charge or use Gibi device in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere, such as a fueling area, or in areas where the air contains chemicals or particles (such as grain, dust, or metal powders). Obey all signs and instructions.

High-consequence activities

This device is not intended for use where the failure of the device could lead to death, personal injury, or severe environmental damage.

Choking hazard

Operating temperature

Gibi device is designed to work in ambient temperatures between 0° and 122° F (-5° and 95° C) and stored in temperatures between -40° and 113° F (-40° and 176° C).

Gibi device can be damaged and battery life shortened if stored or operated outside of these temperature ranges. Avoid exposing Gibi device to dramatic changes in temperature. When you’re using Gibi device or charging the battery, it is normal for Gibi device to get warm. If the interior temperature of Gibi device exceeds normal operating temperatures (for example, in a hot car or in direct sunlight for extended periods of time), Gibi device may stop charging or operating.

IMPORTANT: Move Gibi device to a cooler location out of direct sunlight and wait a few minutes before trying to use Gibi device again.
