Before installing the batteries, wipe the battery terminals 
well with a dry cloth.
If the battery terminals are soiled with oil from one’s skin or other 
dirt, the number of recordable images may be considerably 
diminished, or reduced usage time.
At low temperatures, battery performance may be reduced 
and the low battery icon (
) may appear earlier than usual.
Under these conditions, restore the battery performance by 
warming it in a pocket immediately before use.
Do not put the batteries into a pocket together with metallic 
items such as a key ring.
The batteries may be short circuited.
When not using the camera for long periods, remove the 
batteries from the camera and store them separately.
If the batteries are left inside the camera, the camera may 
become damaged from battery leakage.
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is 
completely or partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk that 
such batteries may leak, overheat, or burst. Always check the 
seals on store-bought batteries before loading them, as some 
batteries may come with defective seals. Do not use batteries with 
defective seals.
Never use batteries that look like this.
Batteries with all or part of the seal (electrical insulation 
sheath) peeled off.
The positive electrode (plus terminal) is flat.
The negative terminal is correctly formed (protruding 
from the metal base), but the seal does not extend up 
over the edge of the metal base.
