Overcharging batteries may shorten battery life. After charging is 
finished, disconnect the cable from your camera.
Do not bend or place heavy objects on the AC cable. Doing so may 
damage the cable.
If you use the camera for an extended period while connected to an 
external power cable, the status lamp may blink red and green. The 
camera may also stop charging to protect the battery from being 
overcharged. Reconnect the cable and fully charge the battery before 
using the camera again.
