The number of recordable pictures or available recording time may vary slightly according 
to battery and usage conditions.
The time required for charging varies depending on conditions of battery usage. 
Charging takes longer at high or low temperatures and when the battery has not been 
used in some time.
Battery will be warm during charging and for some time thereafter.
Battery will run out if not used for long periods of time, even after being charged.
Charge the battery with the charger indoors (10 °C - 35 °C).
Do not leave any metal items (such as clips) near the contact areas of the power plug. 
Otherwise, a fire and/or electric shocks may be caused by short-circuiting or the 
resulting heat generated.
Frequently charging up battery is not recommended.

Do not disassemble or modify the charger.
If available battery power is significantly reduced, battery is reaching end of lifespan. 
Please purchase a new battery.

electrical outlet.
When charging:
• Remove any dirt on connectors of charger and battery with dry cloth.
• Keep at least 1 m (3.28 feet) away from AM radio (may cause radio interference).
• Noises may be emitted from inside of charger, but this is not a fault.
• After charging, remove the charger from the wall socket, and then remove the battery 
from the charger (up to 0.1 W consumed if left in place).
Do not use a damaged or dented battery (especially connectors), e.g. by dropping (can 
cause faults).
