JVC Everio HDD (hard disk drive) camcorders provide the ability to record high-quality video and audio, with the added benefit of allowing 100 hours or more of recording time (depending on the particular model and recording mode) without the use of multiple cassettes, DVDs or flash memory cards, which are required by many other types of cameras. JVC Everio HDD camcorders can be powered either by connecting the unit directly to the AC adaptor or by attaching and charging its accompanying battery.

Things you need

  • JVC battery pack and charging cable / AC adaptor

  1. 1

    Close the LCD display monitor (if it is open) to turn off the camcorder. The accompanying battery (or a replacement) does not come with a full charge upon purchase, so charging is required before use.

  2. 2

    Attach the battery pack to the rear of the camera by sliding it upward into the locked position, with the arrow indicator on the battery pointing up.

  3. 3

    Connect the AC adaptor plug to its port above the battery pack and plug the adaptor into a nearby AC outlet. The power/charge lamp will blink to indicate that charging is in progress; it will go out when the battery is fully charged.

  4. 4

    Press the "Info" button twice at any time when the camera is powered on and in camera mode to view the remaining battery life -- which is displayed in ten minute units -- on the LCD display screen; alternatively, press the "Info" button once and select the battery icon.

Tips and warnings

  • Depending on the battery you are using, plan to charge for two to four hours before it attains a full charge.
