HTC Salsa uses a rechargeable battery. How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use HTC Salsa. Among these are the features and accessories you use (for example, leaving your Bluetooth™ connection always on uses more power). Long phone calls and frequent web browsing uses up a lot of battery power. Also, consider your location: poor signal strength from your mobile network and extreme temperature make the battery work harder.

Inserting the battery

  1. Take the bottom cover off.
  2. Open the battery compartment door.
  3. Insert the battery (with its exposed copper contacts first) into the battery compartment.

Removing the battery

  1. Take the bottom cover off.
  2. Open the battery compartment door.
  3. Slide the battery out.

Charging the battery

The battery is partially charged when shipped. Before you turn on and start using HTC Salsa, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles.
  • Only the power adapter and USB sync cable provided in the box must be used to charge the battery.
  • Do not remove the battery from HTC Salsa while you are charging it using the power or car adapter.
  1. Plug the power adapter into the USB connector.
  2. Plug in the power adapter to an electrical outlet to start charging the battery.
As the battery is being charged, the notification LED shows a solid orange light. The light turns to solid green when the battery is fully charged.

When you charge the battery and HTC Salsa is on, the charging battery icon is displayed in the status bar. After the battery has been fully charged, the charging battery icon turns to a full battery icon .

Note: As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging when it overheats.
