Cautions
AC Adapter
When using the AC adapter in areas other than
the USA
The provided AC adapter features automatic voltage
selection in the AC range from 110 V to 240 V.
USING HOUSEHOLD AC PLUG ADAPTER
In case of connecting the unit’s power cord to
an AC wall outlet other than American National
Standard C73 series type use an AC plug adapter,
called a “Siemens Plug”, as shown.
For this AC plug adapter, consult your nearest
JVC dealer.

Battery Pack
The supplied battery pack is a Terminals
lithium-ion battery. Before using
the supplied battery pack or an
optional battery pack, be sure
to read the following cautions:
• To avoid hazards
...do not burn.
...do not short-circuit the terminals. Keep it away
from metallic objects when not in use. When
transporting, make sure the provided battery
cap is attached to the battery. If the battery cap
is misplaced, carry the battery in a plastic bag.
...do not modify or disassemble.
...do not expose the battery to temperatures
exceeding 60°C (140°F), as this may cause the
battery to overheat, explode or catch fire.
...use only specified chargers.
• To prevent damage and prolong service life
...do not subject to unnecessary shock.
...charge within the temperature range of 10°C
to 35°C (50°F to 95°F). Cooler temperatures
require longer charging time, or in some cases
stop charging at all.
Warmer temperatures prevent complete
charging, or in some cases stop charging at all.
...store in a cool, dry place. Extended exposure
to high temperatures will increase natural
discharge and shorten service life.
...fully charge and then fully discharge the battery
every 6 months when storing the battery pack
over a long period of time.
...remove from charger or powered unit when not
in use, as some machines use current even
when switched off.

to prevent corruption or damage to your
recorded data.
•Do not bend or drop the recording medium,
or subject it to strong pressure, jolts or
vibrations.
•Do not splash the recording medium with water.
Do
• not use, replace, or store the recording
medium in locations that are exposed to
strong static electricity or electrical noise.
•Do not turn off the camcorder power or
