How to charge and attach a battery pack to the GL2.

Solution

Your battery pack was partially charged before it left the factory. It should have enough power for you to check that your camcorder is working properly. However, you must charge the battery pack fully if you want it to power the camcorder for more than a few minutes.

  1. Attach the battery pack to the power adapter.

    • Make sure the DC coupler is not connected.

    • Align the triangle on the battery pack with the line on the power adapter.

    • Slide the battery across until it clicks into place.

  2. Connect the power cord to the power adapter.

  3. Plug the power adapter into a household power socket.

    • The charge indicator flashes red to show that charging is in progress. Single flashes mean that the battery pack is less than 50% charged. Double flashes mean that it is between 50% and 75% charged. Triple flashes mean that it is more than 75% charged.

    • The indicator glows steadily when the battery pack is fully charged.

  4. Take the battery pack off the adapter and attach it to the camcorder.

    • Extend the viewfinder and rotate it upwards.

    • Align the triangle on the battery pack with the line on the camcorder, then slide the battery in the direction of the arrow until it clicks into place.

  5. Remove the battery pack after use.

    • Press and hold the BATT. RELEASE button, while you slide the battery up.

    • Always turn the camcorder off and raise the viewfinder before removing the power source.

Note:

  • Using the optional CH-910 Dual Battery Charger/Holder you can power the camcorder from two battery packs for longer continuous recording. You can exchange the battery packs independently without cutting the power to the camcorder. In addition, the CH-910 can charge two batteries consecutively when it is connected to a household power socket.
