When you first get the Pomera, they will come with factory (AA) batteries. I don’t recommend using these batteries because they don’t last very long. I use Eneloop (2AA) rechargeable batteries. You get about 30 hours of charge (similar to the Kindle) and it beats having to buy 2AA batteries every other month. I’ve had no problems using Eneloop rechargeable batteries with the Pomera DM100.
Unlock the back cover.
Put the 2AA batteries in as shown.
Once the batteries are in, put the cover back on and “LOCK” it. If you don’t the Pomera will NOT turn on.
Turn that bad boy ON.
Press the caps lock button to switch from Japanese to English.
You are now ready to use the Pomera for note-taking, drafting, and brainstorming.
