  • We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 50 and 86 degrees F (10 and 30 degrees C). Outside the temperature range of 32 to 104 degrees F (0 to 40 degrees C), the charge indicator flashes rapidly and charging stops.
  • A lithium ion battery pack can be charged at any charge state. Unlike conventional battery packs, you do not need to completely use or discharge it before charging.
  • To conserve battery power, turn off the camcorder instead of leaving it in record pause mode.
  • We recommend that you prepare battery packs 2 to 3 times longer than you think you might need.
