19 2. Getting Started/Basic Operations Charging the Battery ∫ About batteries that you can use with this unit It has been found that counterfeit battery packs which look very similar to the genuine product are made available for purchase in some markets. Some of these battery packs are not adequately protected with internal protection to meet the requirements of appropriate safety standards. There is a possibility that these battery packs may lead to fire or explosion. Please be advised that we are not liable for any accident or failure occurring as a result of use of a counterfeit battery pack. To ensure that safe products are used, we recommend that a genuine Panasonic battery pack is used. • The battery is not charged when the camera is shipped. Charge the battery before use. • The battery can be recharged even when it still has some charge left, but it is not recommended that the battery charge be frequently topped up while the battery is fully charged. (Since characteristic swelling may occur.) Charging • Use the charger, AC adaptor (supplied), USB connection cable (for charger), and battery that are designed for exclusive use with the camera. • Charge the battery with the charger indoors. 1 Connect the charger and the AC adaptor (supplied) with the USB connection cable (for charger). • Check the plug direction, and hold the plug to insert the cable straight in or pull it straight out. (If the cable is inserted at an angle or in the wrong direction, the plug may deform and cause malfunction.) 2 Insert the AC adaptor (supplied) into the power outlet.
