∫  About the [CHARGE] indicator
The [CHARGE] indicator turns on:
The [CHARGE] indicator is turned on during charging.
The [CHARGE] indicator turns off:
The [CHARGE] indicator will turn off once the charging has completed without any 
problem. (Disconnect the charger from the electrical socket and detach the battery after 
charging is completed.)
When the [CHARGE] indicator flashes
The battery temperature is too high or too low. It is recommended to charge the battery again 
in an ambient temperature of between 10
oC and 30 oC (50 oF and 86 oF).
The terminals of the charger or the battery are dirty. In this case, wipe them with a dry cloth.
∫ Charging time
The indicated charging time is for when the battery has been discharged completely. 
The charging time may vary depending on how the battery has been used. The charging 
time for the battery in hot/cold environments or a battery that has not been used for a 
long time may be longer than normal.
Note
Do not leave any metal items (such as clips) near the contact areas of the power plug. 
Otherwise, a fire and/or electric shocks may be caused by short-circuiting or the 
resulting heat generated.
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 time
Approx. 120 min
