Question

How do I set up and use my AirPad?

Answer

Getting Started

A few things you need to know to get started.

First charge the battery in your AirPad, connect the included power supply to the jack on the side of your AirPad (labeled ON/OFF) and plug the power supply into an AC outlet. It may take up to 4 hours to fully charge the unit.

IMPORTANT! The AirPad does NOT charge via the included USB cable.

For best battery performance leave your AirPad charging overnight or when not in use.

First it is recommended that you read the small booklet included with your AirPad to familiarize yourself with the device.

To turn your AirPad on

Press and hold the ON/OFF button on the top of the unit until the AirPad logo appears in the top left hand corner of the screen. Release the button and wait while the unit “boots up.” Then swipe the lock icon with your finger to unlock it.

To suspend the AirPad (Sleep mode)

Note that this still uses power and can run the battery down quite quickly if Wi-Fi is turned on. The AirPad will go to sleep by itself if you do nothing for a while. To force it to go into sleep mode, press and release the round ON/OFF button on the top of the unit.

To turn the Airpad completely off (shut it down)

Press and hold the round ON/OFF button on the top of the unit until you see a screen that shows the option to Power off. Touch that button on the screen. Then touch OK. Next time you power on you will need to follow the steps above. If however the AirPad was just “asleep” then just pressing the ON/OFF button displays a screen where you can swipe the lock icon with your finger to unlock it.

The Back symbol Back.jpg at the top right hand corner of the screen takes you back one screen each time you touch it.
