Notes on Battery Usage
When you use the battery, carefully read and strictly observe the Safety Instructions and the notes described
Different battery types and surrounding temperatures may affect the battery performance.
Avoid using batteries in extremely cold environments as low temperatures can shorten the battery life
and reduce camera performance. This low temperature will also influence Alkaline battery performance,
therefore Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are highly recommended.
New rechargeable batteries or rechargeable batteries that have not
been used for an extended period of time (batteries that pass the expiry date are exceptions) might
affect the number of pictures that can be taken. Therefore, to maximize their performance and lifetime,
we recommend that you fully charge the batteries and discharge them for at least one complete cycle
before use.
The battery may feel warm when using the camera for an extended period of time or using the flash
continuously. This is normal and not a malfunction.
The camera may feel warm when being used continuously or for an extended period of time. This is
normal and not a malfunction.
If you will not be using the batteries for an extended period of time, remove them from the camera to
prevent leakage or corrosion.
Never use batteries of different types (together) or mix old and new batteries.
Always ensure that the battery terminals are clean.
Never use manganese batteries.
  There is a risk of explosion if the batteries are replaced by an incorrect type.
Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.
