How to take care of VIA Pixetto

Make sure VIA Pixetto never touches any water or moisture. Since the
device is not waterproof, any such contact may damage it.

Avoid touching the circuitry on the VIA Pixetto chip with your hands. This is to prevent the moisture on your hands from damaging your VIA Pixetto. To
pick up or hold your VIA Pixetto, grab the plastic end of the Micro USB 2.0
cord where it connects to Micro USB 2.0 port.

While in use, make sure to handle your VIA Pixetto with minimal force or lay it down on a paper or plastic padded surface. When not in use, place it back into its original plastic packaging and store it with the Micro USB 2.0 cable in its original cardboard box.

And that’s it! This is just a very introductory user guide for VIA Pixetto to
get you all started.
