Using myPower for iPhone 4
Use myPower for iPhone 4 to power your
iPhone 4, or to charge your iPhone 4 while
connected to external power. myPower for
iPhone 4 bypasses the iPhone 4 battery to
power (not charge) your iPhone 4, thus
extending the overall life of the iPhone 4 battery.
The battery will not charge iPhone 4 unless
connected to an external power source.
myPower for iPhone 4 is charged in two ways:
by connecting to external power via a USB
power adapter, or by connecting to a computer
USB port. You use the included micro USB
cable to charge the device. If you are using
an iPhone 4-compliant USB power adapter, you
may charge your iPhone 4 at the same time by
inserting the iPhone 4 in the case.
As a bonus feature, myPower for iPhone 4
doubles as a dock to sync your iPhone 4 to your
computer when connected via the micro USB
cable. In this case, myPower for iPhone 4 will
both sync and charge your iPhone 4.
Adhering myGuard Protector
Your myPower for iPhone 4 includes a myGuard
protector set to protect the front and back of
your iPhone 4. As it is possible the back of the
iPhone 4 could be scratched if dust or other ele-
ments were to get caught between the battery
case and the iPhone 4 back, it is very important
that you adhere the protector onto the back of
your iPhone 4. This will prevent any scratches
on the back when the iPhone 4 is in or out of our
battery case. Additional myGuard protectors are
available online at www.tekkeon.com.

Storing myPower for iPhone 4
Lithium-ion/polymer batteries must be used
consistently for maximum performance.
Therefore, if you do not use the battery often,
once a month discharge and recharge the battery
to 40% (if it will be transported) or 70% (for long
term storage). Store the battery in a cool and dry
environment at a temperature between 50° and
86°F (10° and 30°C). You may permanently
damage your battery by storing the battery
without any capacity in the cell. It is important
that you do not leave the battery in the interior of
a vehicle parked in the sun, or exposed to direct
sunlight for extended periods of time.
Prolonging Battery Life
Extreme heat and cold will affect your battery’s
performance. At temperatures above 80°F
(27°C), the battery will discharge more quickly,
and in colder temperatures, the battery won’t
charge well. Therefore, it is recommended that
the battery is used at room temperature, or
between 68°F to 77°F (20°C to 25°C), and is
not used in temperatures outside the range of
temperatures between 32°F to 104°F (0°C to
40°C). It is not recommended that the battery
is charged in temperatures above 104°F (40°C),
and the battery may be permanently damaged
if you use your battery in temperatures higher
than 140°F (60°C). You may damage the
battery even more if you charge the device in
You may find that using the battery in a very
cold environment decreases the battery capacity.
Unlike the effects of a hot environment, this is a
temporary condition. Once warmed, the battery
will return to its previous capacity.
Swapping Battery Modules
Optional replaceable battery modules are
available for your myPower for iPhone 4.
You can choose from the Ultra Slim battery to
add many more hours to your iPhone 4, or our
Ultra Power battery which more than doubles
your work or play time on your iPhone 4.
1. With the iPhone 4 in the battery case, gently
pull the battery module from the control
module and iPhone 4.
2. Slide the new battery module down over your
iPhone 4 until it snaps into place.
You must charge your extra battery before
swapping it while on the go.
If myPower for iPhone 4 does not power
iPhone 4, take these steps:
1. Confirm that the On/Off switch is in the On
position (to the right).
2. With the iPhone 4 inserted in the battery
case, check the Capacity Indicator to verify
that myPower for iPhone 4 is charged
(capacity indicator is blue).
3. Verify that your iPhone 4 is properly docked
into the 30-pin connector at the bottom of
the battery case and the battery module is
snapped securely into the control module.
