Charging the supplied BP-718 Battery Pack will take approximately
5 hours 10 minutes. A fully charged battery pack will allow for the following operations (movies in FXP mode).
All given times are approximate and vary according to recording mode and charging, recording or playback conditions.
See Charging, Recording and Playback Times (; 229) for details.
IMPORTANT
• The battery pack will be charged only when the camcorder is off.
• 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.
• Do not connect the supplied compact power adapter to voltage converters or special power sources such as those on aircraft, DC-AC inverters, etc.
NOTES
• We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10 °C and
30 °C. If either the ambient temperature or the battery pack’s temperature is outside the range of approx. 0 °C to 40 °C, charging will not start.
• 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.
• We recommend that you prepare battery packs to last 2 to 3 times longer than you think you might need.
