  Removing Batteries To remove the batteries from the cartridge, slide them in toward the connectors and then lift them out. 1 2 Batteries and Chargers • The camera uses two Olympus rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Use only genuine Olympus- brand batteries. • Camera power consumption varies widely with the conditions of use. • The following lead to greatly increased power consumption even when no photographs are taken or movies recorded: - Keeping the shutter button pressed halfway for repeated autofocus operations - Viewing pictures in the monitor for extended periods - Using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® , or GPS - Leaving the camera connected to a computer • The camera may turn off without warning when the batteries are exhausted. • The batteries are not fully charged at purchase. Use a battery charger to charge batteries before first use. • Remove the batteries before putting the camera into storage for periods of a month or more. Leaving the batteries in the camera for extended periods shortens their lives, potentially rendering them unusable. • The supplied chargers take roughly two hours to charge the supplied batteries. • Use only chargers specifically designated for use with the supplied batteries. Similarly, use only batteries specifically designated for use with the supplied chargers. • Incompatible batteries may explode (or rupture) during use. • Follow the instructions in “SAFETY PRECAUTIONS” (P. 664) when preparing used batteries for disposal. Using Your Charger Abroad • The charger can be used in most home electrical sources within the range of 100V to 240V AC (50/60Hz) around the world. However, depending on the country or area you are in, the AC wall outlet may be shaped differently and the charger may require a plug adapter to match the wall outlet. • Do not use commercially available travel adapters as the charger may malfunction. 33 EN 1

Using External Power Sources Connecting via USB Batteries inserted in the camera will charge when the camera is connected to a USB-AC adapter, computer, or other USB device via a USB cable. The batteries charge only when the camera is off. Devices that conform to the USB Power Delivery (USB PD) standard can also be used to power the camera. g “6-6 Powering the Camera via USB (USB Power Delivery)” (P. 625)   Charging via USB 1 Confirm that the camera is off. 2 Connect the camera to the external device via USB. • When attaching the USB cable, use the supplied cable protector and cable clip to prevent damage to the connectors. g “Attaching Cable Protectors” (P. 29) • The CHARGE lamps light during charging. Charging times vary with the output of the USB device. The lamps each go out in turn as the batteries reach full charge. • If only one battery is inserted, the camera will charge the battery in whichever bay is occupied. 3 Charging ends when the camera is turned on. • The batteries cannot be charged via USB when the camera is on. • If a charging error occurs, the CHARGE lamps will blink. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable. • USB charging is available when the battery temperature is between 0 and 40 °C. % • If connected to both an AC adapter and a USB device, the camera will receive power only from the AC adapter. • The supply of power ends when the batteries are charged. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to resume charging. • The batteries will not charge while the camera is off if pictures are being uploaded to a smartphone via Wi-Fi (background auto upload). g “Connecting When the Camera Is Off (Power-off Standby)” (P. 590) 34 EN 1

Optional AC Adapters While inserted in the camera, batteries can be charged using an optional AC-5 AC adapter (on-board charging). The AC adapter can also be used to power the camera. When powered by an AC adapter, the camera can be used even if no batteries are inserted. Use only AC adapters designated for used with the camera. The power cable supplied with the AC adapter is not to be used with other devices. 1 Confirm that the camera is off. 2 Open the DC connector cover. 3 Connect the AC-5 by plugging the DC jack into the camera DC connector. • The batteries will charge while the camera is off. • Securely close the DC connector cover when the AC adapter is not in use. • If batteries are inserted in the camera, the CHARGE lamps light while the batteries charge. The lamps each go out in turn as the batteries reach full charge. • If only one battery is inserted, the camera will charge the battery in whichever bay is occupied. • Charging via AC adapter is available when the battery temperature is between 0 and 40 °C. % • The batteries will not charge while the camera is off if pictures are being uploaded to a smartphone via Wi-Fi (background auto upload). g “Connecting When the Camera Is Off (Power-off Standby)” (P. 590) 35 EN 1
