Installing and charging the battery pack Charging the battery pack
Charge the battery pack on a flat surface without vibration. The battery pack is charged a little in the factory.
(1) Open the DC IN jack cover and connect the supplied AC power adaptor to the DC IN jack with the plugâs 4 mark up. (2) Connect the power cord to the AC power adaptor. (3) Connect the power cord to a wall outlet. (4) Slide the POWER switch to OFF. Remaining battery time is indicated by the minutes on the display window. Charging begins.
When the remaining battery indicator becomes Ä±, normal charge is completed. For full charge, which allows you to use the battery longer than usual, leave the battery pack attached for about 1 hour after normal charge is completed until FULL appears in the display window. Before using the camcorder with the battery pack, unplug the AC power adaptor from the DC IN jack of the camcorder. You can also use the battery pack before it is completely charged.
