  • The car adapter is an optional accessory.
  • The voltage supplied by a vehicle may fluctuate, and printing speed may vary.
  • The maximum voltage is 12 V DC.
  • The car adapter plug is not compatible with other outlets that are not the 12 V cigarette type.
  • When the car adapter is connected to charge the rechargeable Li-ion battery, the amount of voltage required to fully charge the battery may not be supplied by the DC power socket.
    If 9 hours have passed since charging started, the STATUS indicator turns off and charging stops even if the rechargeable Li-ion battery has not been fully charged.
