Important Safety Instructions
• Read these instructions.
• Keep these instructions.
• Heed all warnings.
• Follow all instructions.
• Do not use this apparatus near water.
• Clean only with dry cloth.
• Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with
the manufacturer's instructions.
• Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
• Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-
type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than
the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third
grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided
for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet,
consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
• Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the apparatus.
• Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
• Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified
by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus.
When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/
apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
• Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused
for long periods of time.
• Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is
required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such
as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled
or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been
exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has
been dropped.
Overview/Features
The BP-GL65/GL95 Battery Pack uses lithium-ion batteries. Use
the BP-GL65/GL95 Battery Pack only with equipment whose
Operation Manual recommends its use.
The features of the BP-GL65/GL95 are as follows:
• The battery pack can be recharged before being fully exhausted.
• Small size, light weight, and large capacity
• Remaining charge is finely indicated by the LED status.
• When used in conjunction with the BC-M150 Battery Charger,
the BP-GL65/GL95 supports "INFO function" which fetches
various information from the battery packs.
Caution
On use and storage
• Please consult the store where you purchased this battery pack or
your sales representative before using the battery pack in a
product whose operation manual dose not explicitly state that the
battery pack can be used, or before using the battery pack in
conjunction with another power supply. Inappropriate use of the
battery pack may result in unit misoperation.
• Never short-circuit the battery pack terminals*.
• Keep the battery pack away from fire and intense heat, as it may
explode.
• Never attempt to open the battery pack.
• Never expose the battery pack to rain or moisture.
• Avoid mechanical shock.
• If the battery pack terminals become soiled, clean them with a
soft cloth.
• The battery pack may become warm in use or while being
charged. This is normal.
• Never expose the battery pack to temperatures above 60°C
(140°F).
• Keep away from children.
• Store the battery pack in dry, well-ventilated place.
• If the battery pack is to be stored for an extended period, it should
first be fully discharged.
• The performance and operating time of the battery may drop
under cold conditions. When this happens, do the following to
extend the operating time of the battery pack:
— Keep the battery pack warm and attach it to the component
right before use.
— Charge the battery pack only with the BC-M150 Battery
Charger within a temperature range of 10°C to 30°C (50°F to
86°F).
• The internal impedance of the battery pack increases as the
temperature drops. This may result in a shorter operating time or
the failure of the component to which it is connected to turn on.
This phenomenon occurs more frequently in battery packs that
have been charged many times than in new ones.
• The discharge curve (voltage corresponding to the remaining
capacity) of the BP-GL65/GL95 differs from those of the
conventional lithium ion batteries. Thus, when you attempt to
use the battery alarm function with the device which does not
support "INFO function" and the alarm setting of the device is
for the conventional lithium ion batteries, the duration between
the battery alarm emission and the battery pack exhaustion
becomes extremely short. If possible, it is recommended to
change the battery alarm setting on the device. For details on
how to change the battery alarm setting, refer to the Maintenance
Manual supplied with the device. On changing the battery alarm
setting, refer to the values below and check the actual device.
Even if the battery alarm setting has been changed on the device,
the duration between the battery alarm emission and battery pack
exhaustion becomes shorter than the BP-L series battery packs,
falling to one to two minutes.
Reference (battery alarm settings for typical devices
with which the BP-GL65/GL95 can be used)
When the voltage of the battery pack drops to the level described
below, the battery alarm is emitted from the device.
DNW-7/9/90 series:
13.0 V
DVW-7xx series:
13.0 V
DSR-3xx/5xxWS series: 12.5 V
*A protection circuit will shut off the current to protect the battery
pack's internal cells under the following conditions:
— When an excessive current flow is caused by overloading or
short circuited terminals.
— When a drop in voltage results in the cessation of current
output.
Once the protection circuit has tripped, the battery pack will not
return to normal automatically. To cancel the effect of the
protection circuit, you must charge the battery pack with the BC-
M150 Battery Charger. If the protection circuit trips immediately
after charging, consult the service personnel and have the device
inspected.
Battery life
Battery life depends on the storage temperature, operating
temperature, and frequency of use. Renew the battery pack when
the operating time with a completely charged battery pack
becomes noticeably short.
Operation
Charging
The battery pack discharges naturally over time. It is
recommended that you fully charge the battery pack before using
it.
For details of the charging procedure, refer to the Operation
Manual supplied with the BC-M150 Battery Charger.
• The BP-GL65/GL95 can be charged using the BC-L50/L50CE/
L100/L100CE/L120/M50 as well as the BC-M150.
• It takes about 150 minutes (for the BP-GL65)/145 minutes (for
the BP-GL95) before it is completely charged (when the BC-
M150 is used for charging).
• The battery pack can be charged within a temperature range of
0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F). However, we recommend charging
within a temperature range of 10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F) to
ensure optimum battery performance.
About the LED indications
Remaining capacity indication of the battery pack
(figure A)
The BP-GL65/GL95 is factory-set so that the four LEDs located at
the side finely indicate the remaining capacity.
When the BP-GL65/GL95 is connected to a device such as a
camcorder and the device is turned on, the battery pack starts to
supply power to the device and the LEDs automatically turn on to
indicate the remaining capacity.
To change the remaining capacity indication
setting (figure B-a/b/c)
• To turn off the indication for the remaining capacity of less
than 20%
Keep pressing the CHECK button for more than 3 seconds
(figure B-a).
When you release the button while the LEDs are lighting up as
indicated in figure B-b, the LEDs flash twice and the setting is
completed.
• To resume the indication for the remaining capacity of less
than 20%
Keep pressing the CHECK button for more than 3 seconds
(figure B-a).
When you release the button while the LEDs are lighting up as
indicated in figure B-c, the LEDs flash twice and the setting is
completed.
Indications while the battery pack is being charged
(table C)
While the battery pack is being charged, the LEDs light up as
indicated in the table C. When the battery pack is charged using
the BC-M150, the LEDs do not light up.
