Depending on the charging procedure. Check as follow:
If you use an AC adapter (sold separately) to charge
You can use your Walkman while charging it.
If you use (play music etc.) your Walkman while charging it, the temperature of your Walkman may be higher than when you just charge it.
- While charging, the electric power is shared from the battery to play the Walkman. The AC adapter will continue to charge the battery. Therefore, playing music while charging does not cause the battery to further deteriorate.
If you connect the player to a PC via supplied USB cable to charge
You cannot use your Walkman while charging it.
NOTE: When connecting to a PC, [Connected USB] will be displayed, and you will not be able to use your Walkman.
