Appendix A Product Information

Headphone Safety

Listening to audio at high volume for extended periods of time can cause hearing damage. To avoid this problem, consider the tips below:

Keep the volume down.

Avoid prolonged, continuous listening.

Wear headphones that isolate the wanted audio from background noise.

Other Safety Considerations

A small percentage of people may be susceptible to blackouts or seizures (even if they have never had one before) when exposed to flashing lights or light patterns such as when playing games or watching video. If you have experienced seizures or blackouts or have a family history of such occurrences, you should consult a physician before playing games or watching videos.

Engaging in repetitive motions such as pressing keys or playing some games may cause you to experience occasional discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body.

Discontinue use of your device and consult a physician if you experience headaches, blackouts, seizures, convulsion, eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary movement, disorientation, or other discomfort. To reduce risk of these symptoms avoid prolonged use, hold your device some distance from your eyes, use your device in a well-lit room, and take frequent breaks.

Small parts contained in your device and its accessories may present a choking hazard to small children.

Using your Kindle Fire while operating a vehicle is not recommended and may be prohibited or restricted in some areas. If you are in an area where using your Kindle Fire while operating a vehicle is allowed, always give full attention to the operation of the vehicle and stop using your Kindle Fire if it becomes a distraction.

Wireless Safety and Compliance

Turn your wireless connection off in areas where wireless use is forbidden or when it may cause interference or danger. Some specific situations are described below. In general, you should not use your Kindle Fire with your wireless connection turned on any place you are not allowed to use a cellular device.

Turn Wireless Off When Flying

To prevent possible interference with aircraft systems, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration regulations and many other aviation agencies require you to have permission from a crew­ member to use your device’s wireless service.

Using Your Kindle Fire Around Other Electronic Devices

Kindle Fire generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency (RF) energy and, if not used in accordance with its instructions, may cause interference to radio communications and electronic equipment. External RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately shielded electronic operating systems, entertainment systems, and personal medical devices.
