Charging the Battery Pack

The camcorder can be powered with a battery pack or directly using the compact power adapter.
The first time you use the camcorder, charge the battery pack.

1. Connect the power cord to the compact power adapter.

2. Slide the BATT. OPEN switch in the direction of the arrow and open the battery compartment cover (). Insert the battery pack all the way into the compartment as shown in the illustration ().
  • Push it all the way in until the battery release latch secures it in place.

3. Close the battery compartment cover.
Push the cover until you hear a click. Do not force the cover closed if the battery pack is not correctly inserted.

4. Charging will start when the camcorder is turned off.
  • If the camcorder was on, the green POWER/CHG indicator will go out when you turn off the camcorder. After a moment, the POWER/CHG indicator will turn on in red (battery pack charging).

If the indicator flashes, refer to 'Indicators and Onscreen Displays' in 'Troubleshooting' in the camcorder’s instruction manual.

5. The red POWER/ CHG indicator will go out when the battery pack is fully charged.

6. Disconnect the compact power adapter in the order shown in the illustration.

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 green power/charge indicator goes out.

  • We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10°C and 30°C (50°F and 86°F). Outside the temperature range of 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F), charging will not start.
  • The battery pack will be charged only when the camcorder is off.
  • If the power supply was disconnected while charging a battery pack, make sure the power/charge indicator has gone out before restoring the power supply.
  • If remaining battery time is an issue, you can power the camcorder using the compact power adapter so the battery pack will not be consumed.
  • Charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. Therefore, charge them on the day of use, or the day before, to ensure a full charge.
  • Charging time for the included LP-E6N Battery Pack is approx. 4 hours, but may vary depending on the temperature and environmental factors.
  • Charging time when used with the optional LC-E6 Battery Charger () is approx. 2 hours and 30 minutes. For more information, please refer to the LC-E6 Battery Charger’s instruction manual.
