For Your Safety
The following describes the proper use of the battery and how to prolong its life.
Incorrect use can shorten battery life or cause leakage, overheating, fire, or explosion.
The battery is not charged at shipment. Charge the battery before use. Keep the
battery in its case when not in use.
Notes on the Battery
The battery gradually loses its charge when not in use. Charge the battery one or two
days before use.
Battery life can be extended by turning the camera off when not in use.
Battery capacity decreases at low temperatures; a depleted battery may not function
at when cold. Keep a fully charged spare battery in a warm place and exchange as
necessary, or keep the battery in your pocket or other warm place and insert it in the
camera only when shooting. Do not place the battery in direct contact with hand
warmers or other heating devices.
Charging the Battery
Charge the battery in the supplied battery charger (pg. 5). Charging times will
increase at ambient temperatures below +10°C (+50°F) or above +35 °C (+95 °F). Do
not attempt to charge the battery at temperatures above 40°C (+104°F); at
temperatures below 0 °C (+32 °F), the battery will not charge.
Do not attempt to recharge a fully charged battery. The battery does not however
need to be fully discharged before charging.
The battery may be warm to the touch immediately after charging or use. This is normal.
At normal temperatures, the battery can be recharged about 300 times. A noticeable
decrease in the length of time the battery will hold a charge indicates that it has
reached the end of its service life and should be replaced.
Performance may be impaired if the battery is left unused for extended periods
when fully charged. Run the battery flat before storing it.
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery and store
it in a dry place with an ambient temperature of from +15°C to +25°C (+59°F to
+77°F). Do not store in locations exposed to extremes of temperature.
