  • NOTE:

    • The temperature of the Walkman may increase while charging.

    • While charging, the electric power is shared from the battery to play the Walkman player. The AC adapter will continue to charge the battery. Therefore, playing music while charging does not cause the battery to further deteriorate.
  • If you connect the player to a PC via supplied USB cable to charge, you cannot use your Walkman while charging it.
