On the battery pack
On charging the battery pack
We recommend charging the battery pack in an
ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C
(50°F to 86°F). The battery pack may not be fully
charged in temperatures outside this range.
Effective use of the battery pack
Battery performance decreases in low
temperature surroundings. So in cold places, the
operational time of the battery pack is shorter.
We recommend the following to ensure longer
battery pack use:
Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your
body to warm it up, and insert it in the camera
immediately before you start shooting.
The battery pack will run out quickly if you use
the flash or zoom frequently.
We recommend having spare battery packs
handy for two or three times the expected
shooting time, and making trial shots before
taking the actual shots.
Do not expose the battery pack to water. The
battery pack is not water-resistant.
Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot
places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.
How to store the battery pack
Fully discharge the battery pack before storing
and store it in a cool, dry place. To maintain the
battery pack's function, fully charge the battery
pack and then fully discharge it on the camera at
least once a year while storing.
To use the battery pack up, leave the camera in
slideshow (page 36) playback mode until the
power goes off.
To prevent staining the terminal, short-
circuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery
case when carrying and storing.
On battery life
The battery life is limited. Battery capacity
decreases over time and through repeated use. If
decreased usage time between charges becomes
significant, it is probably time to replace it with
a new one.
The battery life varies according to how it is
stored and the operating conditions and
environment in which each battery pack is used.
Compatible battery pack
The NP-BG1 (supplied) can be used only in G
type compatible Cyber-shot models.
If you use the NP-FG1 battery pack (not
supplied), the minutes also appear after the
battery remaining indicator ( 60 Min).
