Arctic Butterfly® — SL 700 Instructions

WARNING: Do Not Spin Device While Brush is on Camera’s Sensor

Read complete instructions below before using your spinning device
  1. Requires one (1) AAA batteries (not included). Use high quality batteries for best performance. Remove the batteries before traveling on an airplane.

  2. Do not use on camera chamber or parts other than sensor, otherwise you will smear the sensor.

  3. Wash inside the cap occasionally with mild soap or in case of a smear.

  4. When removing the cap, do not pull straight off. Instead, "unscrew the cap following the arrows direction then pull"

  8. Repeat steps 6 through 8 if necessary.
