dling the battery

The battery may leak or explode if
improperly handled. Observe the
following precautions when han-
dling the battery for use in this
product:
• Before replacing the battery, turn

the product off.

• Only use a rechargeable Nikon

plied). Charge the battery by
inserting it in an MH-62 battery
charger.

• When inserting the battery, do

not attempt to insert it upside
down or backwards.

• Do not short or disassemble the

battery or attempt to remove or
break the battery insulation or
casing.

• Do not expose the battery to

flame or to excessive heat.

• Do not immerse in or expose to

water.

• Replace the terminal cover when

transporting the battery. Do not
transport or store with metal
objects such as necklaces or hair-
pins.

• The battery is prone to leakage

when fully discharged. To avoid
damage to the product, be sure
to remove the battery when no
charge remains.

• Discontinue use immediately

should you notice any change in
the battery, such as discoloration
or deformation.

• If liquid from the damaged bat-

tery comes in contact with cloth-
ing or skin, rinse immediately with
plenty of water.

Observe the following pre-
cautions when handling the
battery charger

• Keep dry. Failure to observe this

precaution could result in fire or
electric shock.

• Dust on or near the metal parts of

the plug should be removed with
a dry cloth. Continued use could
result in fire.

• Do not handle the power cable or

go near the battery charger dur-
ing lightening storms. Failure to
observe this precaution could
result in electric shock.

• Do not damage, modify, forcibly

tug or bend the power cable,
place it under heavy objects, or
expose it to heat or flame. Should
the insulation be damaged and
the wires become exposed, take it
to a Nikon-authorized service rep-
resentative for inspection. Failure
to observe these precautions
could result in fire or electric
shock.
