Battery Precautions, Using the Camera in another Country




Precautions during Use

• Operation provided by a battery under cold conditions is always less than operation 

under normal temperatures. This is due to the characteristics of the battery, not the 

• Charge the battery in an area where the temperature is within the range of 15°C to 

35°C (59°F to 95°F). Outside this temperature range charging can take longer than 
normal or even fail.

• Do not tear or remove the battery outer label.
• If a battery provides only very limited operation following a full charge, it probably 

means the battery has reached the end of its service life. Replace the battery with a 
new one.


Storage Precautions

• Storing the battery for a long time while it is charged can cause deterioration of 

battery characteristics. If you do not plan to use a battery for some time, fully use 
up its charge before storing it.

• Always remove the battery from the camera when you are not using it. A battery left 

in the camera can discharge and go dead, which will require some time to charge 
when you need to use the camera.

• Store batteries in a cool, dry place (20°C (68°F) or lower).
• To prevent over discharging of an unused battery, fully charge it, and then load it in 

the camera and fully use up the charge about once every six months.


Precautions during Use

• The bundled USB-AC adaptor is designed for operation with any power supply in 

the range of 100V to 240V AC, 50/60Hz. Note, however, that the shape of the 
power cord plug depends on each country or geographic area. Before taking the 
camera and USB-AC adaptor along on a trip, check with travel agent about the 
power supply requirements in your destination(s).

• Do not connect the USB-AC adaptor to a power supply through a voltage converter 

or similar device. Doing so can lead to malfunction.


Extra Batteries

• Taking along extra fully charged batteries (NP-130) is recommended while on a trip 

in order to avoid not being able to shoot images due to the battery going dead.
