Canon bp-2l14 printer battery pack


Read these instructions thoroughly
before using the battery pack.
Charge the battery pack before you use it.
Your battery pack was partially charged before it left the factory. It should have enough power for
you to check that your Canon equipment is working properly. However, you must charge the
battery pack fully if you want more than a few minutes of power.
For details, refer to the instructions provided with your charger.
Charging and operating times
• Refer to your product instructions for information on charging and operating times.
• You will get more usage time if you turn the product off when it is not in operation.
• Charging and operating times vary - the safest policy is always to have two or three times as
many battery packs as you think you will need.
• You can use the battery pack between 0° and 40°C (32° to 104°F), but it works best between 10° and
30°C (50° to 86°F). Operating time will be shorter than usual at low temperatures like a ski ground. For
better operating results, the battery pack can be warmed in your pocket or someplace and then used.
• If the battery pack starts to give you much less operating time than usual (at normal
temperatures) it has reached the end of its life and must be replaced.
When to recharge
You can recharge a lithium ion battery pack whenever it is convenient. Unlike a conventional battery
pack, it does not have to be fully discharged first. However, as the battery pack will naturally discharge
itself over time, it is best to charge it the same day you plan to use it, or the day before.
In addition, there is the possibility of damage to the battery pack and reduced usage time if fully
charged batteries are stored for a period of months.
Always attach the terminal cover.
Do not allow any metal objects to touch the terminals (Figure A), as this can cause a short circuit and
damage the battery pack. Attach the terminal cover whenever the battery pack is not being used (Figure B).
Keep the terminals clean.
The battery pack, charger or the product itself will not work properly if the terminals are dirty.
Check them before use, and wipe them with a dry cloth or tissue if necessary.
Disconnect the battery pack when you are not using it.
Even when it is turned off, the product the battery pack is attached to will continue to slowly drain
power from the battery pack.
When you plan to store a battery pack aim to use its complete charge first before disconnecting
it. Store the battery pack in an area which is free of moisture and where the temperature is no
higher than 30°C (86°F).

• Keep the battery pack away from fire (or it might explode).
• Do not expose it to temperatures greater than 60
(140°F). Do not leave it near a heater, or
inside a car in hot weather, for example.
• Do not try to disassemble or modify it.
• Do not drop or knock it.
• Do not get it wet.
Canon battery packs are designed exclusively for use with other Canon products. Canon is not respon-
sible for damage or accidents resulting from use with non-Canon brand chargers or other products.
About the battery terminal cover:
The battery terminal cover has a [oJ-shaped hole. This is useful when you wish to differentiate
between charged and uncharged battery packs. For example, with charged battery packs,
attach the terminal cover so that the
]-shaped hole shows the blue label (Figure C).
