Several important points
- Just like with laptops, it is healthier for your charger to plug it in BEFORE you connect it to the motorboard.
- Because the charger has no on/off switch, there can be a power surge when it is plugged in. This can blow a fuse, or damage the charger. It is recommended to use a power strip with an on/off switch: a) Plug the charger in. b) Turn on the power. c) Connect it to the motorboard
- The battery is very powerful. For example I accidentally shorted the connector while trying to measure charged voltage. I managed to completely melt off the end of the volt meter probes.
