* Approximate times for recording with repeated operations such as start/stop, zooming, power on/off. Actual time may be shorter.
  • We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10 degrees C and 30 degrees C (50 F and 86 F). Outside the temperature range of 0 degrees C to 40 degrees C (32 F to 104 F), the CHARGE indicator flashes rapidly and charging stops.
  • A lithium ion battery pack can be charged at any charge state. Unlike conventional battery packs, you do not need to completely use or discharge it before charging.
  • We recommend that you prepare battery packs 2 to 3 times longer than you think you might need.
  • To conserve battery power, turn off the camcorder instead of leaving it in record pause mode.
  • Turn off the camcorder before connecting or disconnecting the power adapter.
  • If the adapter is used close to a TV, it may cause picture interference. Move the adapter away from the TV or the antenna cable.
  • Do not connect any products that are not expressly recommended to the camcorder's DC IN terminal or to the power adapter.
  • You may hear some noise from the power adapter during use. This is not a malfunction.
  • Do not disconnect and reconnect the power cord while charging a battery pack. Charging may stop. The battery pack may not be charged correctly even if the CHARGE indicator glows steady. The battery pack may also not be charged correctly when a power outage occurs during charging. Remove the battery pack and attach it back to the camcorder.
  • When the power adapter or battery pack is defective, the CHARGE indicator flashes rapidly (at about 2 flashes/second) and charging stops.
  • The CHARGE indicator informs you about the charge status.
    0-50%: Flashes once every second
    More than 50%: Flashes twice every second
    100%: Glows steadily
