Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Batteries and media cards, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
Your camera needs power and it needs a place to store its images.…It usually gets its power from a rechargeable battery and it stores its images…on a removable media card.…The battery in your 60D can be recharged with the included battery charger.…Just snap the battery into the charger, it only goes the right way, and plug the…charger into the wall.…When it's charging, these lights on the front will flash, and when the battery…is fully charged, you'll see a solid green light on the front of the charger.…Now, these batteries are very forgiving in their charging habits.…
Unlike old rechargeable batteries, you don't have to drain them completely…before you recharge them.…Don't hesitate to top it off before you go out on a long shooting trip.…From time to time though, it is a good idea to drain the battery completely and…then give it a good, solid charge all the way back up to full.…The battery only goes in the right way.…It's round on one end, so it can't go in backwards.…And it's got contacts at one end; those go first into the camera.…
