The surface contacts on the bottom of the rugged tablet are silver plated, which is common plating for electrical contacts. They will remain functional even if they are slightly discolored. To properly clean the surface contacts, we recommend any readily available non-abrasive silver polish; many of these polishes contain an anti-oxidizing agent that will slow future discoloration. A pencil eraser should not be used on the contacts as it will erase the silver plating relatively quickly, allowing corrosion to occur at a faster rate, which will cause failures.
Like most technology vendors, MobileDemand has the devices contract-manufactured in Asia.

You can expect approximately a 20% loss of capacity after 200 full cycles - which would equate to about a year's worth of being used every business day. This would be common across Li-ION batteries in today's mobile computers (laptops, tablets). The battery should last several years, but expect to have some capacity drop over time. Keeping the battery cool during the summer months can greatly increase the lifecycle of any battery; MobileDemand mounting options can assist in this.
A MobileDemand battery should take approximately two-three hours to fully charge. Older batteries may take longer.
