How to charge the battery for the EOS 10D


Connect the power cord.

  • Connect the power cord to the charger.
  • Connect the power plug to an AC outlet. 1

Remove the cover.

  • Store the cover in a place where it will not be lost.
  • If you remove the battery from the camera, be sure to reattach the cover to protect against short circuit.

Attach the battery.

  • Align the battery's top edge with the <-> mark on the charger. While pressing down the battery, slide it in the direction of the arrow.
  • To detach the battery, follow the above procedure in reverse.

Recharge the battery.

  • When the battery is attached to the charger, recharging starts automatically and the red lamp starts blinking.
  • A completely exhausted battery takes about 90 minutes to almost fully recharge.
  • The blinking frequency of the red lamp indicates the progress of the recharging.
  • After the battery recharging is almost completed, the red lamp will stop blinking and remain lit. Recharging the battery for another hour will fully recharge the battery.
  • After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

  • Do not recharge any battery pack other than Battery Pack BP-511 or BP-512.
  • The battery continues to discharge a low electrical current even while the camera is not used. This may lead to excessive battery discharge and a shorter battery service life.

When not using the camera, remove the battery and attach the protective cover to prevent shorting. Before using the camera again, be sure to recharge the battery.

  • The time required to recharge the battery depends on the ambient temperature and battery's power level.
  • If operating time is sharply reduced even after charging normally, the battery pack may have exceeded its useful life. Replace it with a new battery pack.
  • The battery pack can operate in temperatures from 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F), however for full operating performance, use between 10°C (50°F) and 30°C (86°F) is recommended. In cold locations such as ski areas, battery performance is temporarily decreased and operating time may be reduced.
