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 
camera.

• 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.
