To charge a battery pack, the battery pack must be installed in the printer and the printer must be connected to a proper power source. The printer does not need to be powered on in order to charge the battery pack. Use of the printer while the battery charges may increase the time required to fully re-charge the battery.
The first charge (from empty to full) requires approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes. Subsequent recharges will take slightly more than 1 hour. Do not use an external charger to recharge the battery pack. Use only the printer's built-in charger.
The battery can be charged within a temperature range of 0 degrees C (32 degrees F) to 40 degrees C (104 degrees F). The battery may be warm after charging or use. This is normal.
When a fully discharged battery is removed from the printer, set the charge condition indicator at the end of the battery so that the red dot is visible. This tells you the condition of the battery.
The Ni-MH battery is resistant to "Memory Effect" issues typically experienced by Ni-Cad batteries. Therefore, recharging the battery before it is empty will not affect its performance.
