  • We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10o and 30o C(50o and 86o F). The charging time will vary depending on the surrounding temperature and the battery's initial charge condition.
  • In cold places the effective usage time of the battery will decrease.
  • The CH-910 can charge two battery packs consecutively. You can also power the camcorder by connecting the CH-910 with charged battery packs to the camcorder. When you attach two battery packs, a battery pack can be exchanged without interrupting the power supply.
