The DT-X5 is powered by the integrated Li-Ion battery (up to 3400 mAh depending on the model) or standard alkaline batteries. An integrated back-up battery provides additional security for user data. If two AA batteries are used, the DT-X5M10E has more than 200 hours of operational life. The large Li-Ion battery powers the radio terminal for a full 30 hours with a WLAN connection. These outstanding figures are achieved by using energy-saving components in conjunction with sophisticated power management functions, which also help to reduce operating costs in everyday use.
CASIO hardware stands for absolute reliability and longevity. With its plastic-coated magnesium case, the DT-X5 survives drops on concrete from 1.80 meters. It also meets protection class IP54 as per IEC60529 Standard for dust and splash protection. The DT-X5 works perfectly in temperatures of -20°C to 50°C. The ideal qualities for long-term survival in tough working conditions.
