    • A plug adapter is attached depending on the country or region of purchase. The shape of the plug adapter varies with the country or region of purchase.
    • When charging starts, the power-on lamp (charge lamp) flashes. The charging time for a fully exhausted battery is about 3 hours.
    • When charging is complete, the power-on lamp (charge lamp) turns off.
    • The battery cannot be charged when the power-on lamp (charge lamp) quickly flashes, possibly due to one of the reasons described below.
