When the camcorder is off, press < BATT. INFO > to display the charge status of a battery pack. The Intelligent System will display the charge status (as a percentage) and the remaining recording time (in minutes) for 5 seconds. If the battery pack is exhausted, the battery information may not be displayed.


When you use battery packs bearing the Intelligent System mark, the camcorder will communicate with the battery and display the remaining usage time (accurate to 1 minute). You can only use and charge these battery packs with camcorders and chargers compatible with IntelligentSystem.

  • The battery pack will be charged only when the camcorder is off.
  • Turn off the camcorder before connecting or disconnecting the compact power adapter. After pressing < POWER > to turn off the camcorder, important data is updated in the memory. Be sure to wait until the green ON/OFF (CHG) indicator goes out.
  • We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10oC and 30oC (50oF and 86o F). Outside the temperature range of 0oC to 40oC (32oF to 104o F), charging will not start.
  • Charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. Therefore, charge them on the day of use, or the day before, to ensure a full charge.
  • Use of genuine Canon accessories is recommended.
