Built in Rechargeable Lithium Battery, Disposal


Do’s and Don’ts





Built-in Rechargeable Lithium Battery

The camcorder has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery to keep the 
date/time and other settings. The built-in lithium battery is recharged 
while you use the camcorder; however, it will discharge completely if 
you do not use the camcorder for about 3 months.
To recharge the built-in lithium battery: Connect the compact power 
adapter to the camcorder and leave it connected with the camcorder 
off. The built-in lithium battery will be fully charged after about 24 hours.


When you delete movies or initialize the memory, only the file allocation 
table is altered and stored data is not physically erased. When you dis-
pose of the camcorder or memory card or give either to another per-

on, initialize the camcorder’s built-in memory (N only) or 

memory card using the [Complete Initialization] option (A 38). Fill it up 
with unimportant recordings, and then initialize it again using the same 
option. This makes recovering the original recordings very difficult.
