If you have the package of the camera includes a special apparatus for charging a battery, remove it from the compartment and insert the special container, in this case, note the connection of its contacts with szu. Connect to the container the special network cable that is mandatory is in the configuration of the camera (and can also be replaced with a similar one of greater length, such is in almost every house).
Plug the device to a power source and wait until the battery is fully charged. It may take a few hours (2 to 4). If you charge it for the first time, it is best to fully discharge it before doing this and then leave in szu a little longer time to increase capacity.
If you have a Canon camera used standard AA batteries, purchase a charger for them at any nearest shop of radio engineering in your city. You can also order them on the online store, or buy them in the cellular shops and shops selling household appliances.
Insert the batteries into the device, necessarily in the correct orientation. Wait until the green indicator, is usually to fully charge the two batteries large capacity takes about 18-20 hours.
If your camera model supports charging from the USB port of the computer, connect it using the mini-USB cable which usually comes in the configuration of the device. Note the indicator on the screen of the camera, it will show the battery level.
Better use the original cords for the connection. The process of charging in this case may take about 3 hours. Also in such cases sometimes included is a special adapter from USB to a regular outlet, so that the charging process occurred without the participation of the computer.
Do not use for charging batteries of the camera poor quality cables.
Advice 2: How to charge the camera
Buying a digital camera, people are interested in all the parties. How many megapixels does the screen rotates, is there a live view, etc. Often all these important issues we forget about another equally necessary parts of the camera the battery. It is important to know how many hours can work your battery and how to charge. After purchasing the camera, do not place the battery directly on the charger, as many do. For a start it is necessary "to disperse".
You will need
- Battery camera, charger battery, camera.
The first thing to do is to completely discharge the battery. Ie shoot and shoot until until the battery will not sit down.
After that remove the battery and insert it into the charger connected to the socket. Let it charge to maximum. But in any case do not leave the battery in the charger after it is charged already. It adversely affects its properties and the amount of power.
As soon as the battery is charged, reinsert it in the camera and again discharge to exhaustion. So you need to do 3-4 run a full cycle of charging and discharging.
The battery is ready to serve you and your camera faithfully. During normal everyday use make sure the battery was always well charged. But it is not necessary to put it on charge if it is discharged only half. Wait till you have at least one division or the battery icon will begin to flash, warning about the depletion of energy.
If you have long and hard to photograph, and you're worried that a single battery might not be enough, buy another one. Let him be the spare. Always carry it with you. Rest assured, he will not just rescue.
Because the specifics of the camera such that they are used relatively rarely (than, for example, cell phone or laptop), and the cost of batteries is high and, moreover, over time, they become inaccessible, it is recommended to store the battery for camera and camcorder in the fridge.
Batteries for cameras and camcorders – funded energy-intensive electric batteries with charging from the mains, allowing the use of digital technology offline. Their advantages are obvious, and the main differences are in size and capacity, therefore, the amount of time the camera without recharging.
Advice 3: How best to recharge the batteries
Disposable batteries are efficiently used only in conjunction with appliances that consume low power. In all other cases, you should use the batteries. They allow multiple charging, thereby achieving appreciable cost savings.
To charge the batteries, not intended for repeated use, it is impossible. This can cause electrolyte leakage and even explosion. It is especially dangerous to attempt to recharge disposable lithium batteries: lithium metal fire, accompanied by high temperatures, is threatened by fire.
The exception to the above rule can be made for alkaline zinc-manganese batteries (that they write the word alkaline). They can be charged asymmetric alternating current in milliamperes is equal to one tenth of the capacity, expressed in milliampere-hours. The duty cycle of this current should be 0.5 (dimensionless value), the current in the charging direction must be equal to the one specified above, and the dilution - half. The charging time is not more than 15 hours, and it needs to happen in a thick-walled box. Alkaline zinc-manganese elements is kept about 10 charging cycles. In comparison with these batteries, is very small.
Nickel-cadmium and Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries charge with a constant current in milliamperes must also meet one-tenth of the capacity, expressed in milliampere-hours. The charging time is also 15 hours.
Lithium-ion batteries are different from disposable lithium batteries that contain lithium in a non-metallic form. Because of this they can be charged, but should use homemade devices can. Use only the factory charger. If battery is designed for mobile phone, is expected to feed, say, a homemade flashlight, charge the accumulator at a suitable him a serviceable phone. Also, these batteries can be recharged universal device, called in the jargon "frog". To do this, when it's off, hold it in the battery, press the contact spring to the negative and positive contacts, and then press the button to switch polarity, until the LEDs. Turn your device into the socket and starts to blink the second led. Stop charging when it stops flashing.
All connections engage when de-energized the equipment, especially if the charger transformerless. Observe the correct polarity. Do not exceed the charging current. Do not use near a charging battery open fire. Do not short circuit batteries.
