•The charging time may differ depending on the condition of the battery
pack or the ambient temperature.
•The times shown are for charging an empty battery pack which has been
run down with a video camera etc., using this unit at an ambient
temperature of 25 °C (77 °F).
Using the battery pack quickly
If necessary, you can remove the battery pack and use it before charging is
complete. However, the available battery time differs depending on the
charging time.
Charging time and "10-minute charging/65-
minute (approx.) recording"
The times shown are the approximate continuous recording times at an
ambient temperature of 25 °C (77 °F) when using an NP-FH70 rechargeable
battery pack (not supplied) and a video camera that has a power
consumption of 1.8 W when used without its LCD display.
When using a battery pack immediately after running it down with a video
camera. Except a battery pack that has deteriorated, for example because it
has not been used for a long time. There are two kinds of charging, normal
charge and full charge. The approximately 25% increase compared to
existing products means the rate of improvement in complete normal
charging time compared to our existing AC adapter/charger AC-VQP10.
Generally, the charging time and available recording time depend on the
battery pack and the conditions of use.
Notes
• If the mode change switch is set to VCR/CAMERA during charging,
charging stops.
• If the CHARGE lamp does not light up or flash, check that the battery
pack is correctly attached to the AC Adaptor/Charger. If it is not attached
correctly, it will not be charged.
• If anything goes wrong during charging, the charge lamp blinks and
"WARNING" appears on the display. For details, see "Troubleshooting".
To Check Charging
See illustration C.
You can check the charging time on the display during charging. When
charging starts, BATTERY LIFE lights up in the display window. The
battery life displayed is the approximate time remaining for taking
photographs using the viewfinder. The battery life is shorter if the LCD
display is used.
The battery life may not be displayed with certain video equipment. For
details, refer to "Notes on the battery life indicator (Read carefully before
use.)".
Press DISPLAY during charging.
During charging, the contents of the display window change each time you
press the DISPLAY change button. The slot indicator lamp shows the slot
number for the battery information displayed. When two battery packs are
installed simultaneously, the time display of the battery pack not being
charged returns automatically after about 10 seconds to the time display of
the battery pack being charged.
Here is an example of installing a battery pack in Slot 1 followed by
another in Slot 2 . The slot indicator lamp corresponds to the slot number.
1 Battery life if the first installed battery pack is installed in your
"InfoLITHIUM" electronic equipment.
2 Remaining time until normal charging of the first installed
battery pack is complete.
The normal charge time is not displayed after normal charging is
complete.
3 Remaining time until full charging of the first installed battery
pack is complete.
The full charge time is not displayed after full charging is complete.
4 Battery life if the last installed battery pack is installed in your
"InfoLITHIUM" electronic equipment.
5 Remaining time until normal charging of the last installed
battery pack is complete.
The normal charge time is not displayed after normal charging is
complete.
6 Remaining time until full charging of the last installed battery
pack is complete.
Notes
• The time display shows the approximate time when charging at 25 °C (77
°F). The time display may differ from the actual charging time due to the
environment of use.
• The time display of the battery pack on the side not being charged may
take some time to appear.
• The time display may show "– – – –" in the following cases. This is not a
malfunction.
– There is a difference between the displayed time and actual charging
time. Even if this happens, continue charging.
– When charging a battery other than an "InfoLITHIUM" battery pack
(Battery life display and other functions are not available.)
• Full charging requires about one hour after normal charging is complete.
If you remove the battery pack between normal charge and full charge,
the charging time may not be displayed properly in the next charging.
• When charging a battery that has not been used for a long time, the
displayed battery life and full charge time sometimes differ from the
actual times. This is not a malfunction. If this happens, fully charge the
battery pack. The correct times can then be displayed.
• If you install a fully charged battery pack in this unit, "TIME TO CHG
FULL 1h" may appear on the display. This is not a malfunction.
• It may take some time after pressing DISPLAY for the time to be
displayed.
• To display the battery life of a new battery pack, first install it in your
video camera recorder and use it for about 20 seconds, and then charge it
with this unit.
