Charging time

Using the camcorder

  • When the camcorder charges an exhausted battery pack for the first 20 minutes, it can be used for 3 times longer than it was charged. In other words, you can record with the camcorder for 60 minutes after a 20-minute charge.
  • The ON/OFF(CHG) indicator starts flashing in red. The indicator will go out when the charging is completed.


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.


  • Turn off the camcorder before connecting or disconnecting the compact power adapter. After turning off the camcorder, important data is updated in the memory. Be sure to wait until the ON/OFF(CHG) indicator turns off.
  • We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10o C and 30o C (50o F and 86o F). Outside the temperature range of 0o C to 40o C (32o F to 104o F), the charging will not start.
  • Do not connect to the camcorder's DC IN terminal or to the compact power adapter any electrical equipment that is not expressly recommended for use with this camcorder.
  • To prevent equipment breakdowns and excessive heating, do not connect the supplied compact power adapter to voltage converters for overseas travels or special power sources such as those on aircraft and ships, DC-AC inverters, etc.
  • Use of genuine Canon accessories is recommended.
