Hey cats100,
You should not have a problem using the included charger since it is rated to 240v, but you will probably have to purchase a plug converter. According to the manufacturer the battery that should be used for this camcorder is model # NP-FH40. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

How do I charge the battery and how long does it last ?


Usually you just put it into the charger that should have come with your camera. If your Camera has an automatic charge feature built-in (you'll have to plug it into a wall outlet via the supplied adapter), and your battery is still dead... buy a new battery! They don't cost much! Batteries are generally good for approx. two-three years depending on how long you use your camera, and how many times they have been recharged! Newer Batteries are constructed better and can be recharged many more times before they need to be replaced.

Vupoint dv-dv1-vp camcorder needs a new battery


Buy a "np-60" battery on ebay or other store. Some will come with a charger.
You can charge the battery via the usb cable from any working usb port.

How do i know it charging


The DVR 508HD is a video camera, not a battery charger. As such it doesn't charge batteries at all. It uses three standard AAA batteries, either disposables or rechargeables. If you use rechargeables, they must be recharged outside the camera using a separate charger.

How to charge a Vivitar DVR 805HD


I am confused, this camera uses three AA batteries, installed in the bottom of the camera. If you wanted to use rechargeable batteries you would remove them and use a external battery recharger.

My Canon 2000x will not recharge. It was OK for a few months, recharged regularly, but I can't get anywhere with it now.


Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.

The best way to proceed is to buy a new battery, then try to charge it. If it charges and the camera works, problem solved.

If it doesn't charge, then maybe you need a new charger. The battery will not be wasted though, as it is always handy to have a spare.

I usually search Amazon for cheap replacements of these items.

My dvd camcorder has serious batterie problems what should i do?


dear sir,


the first suspect is your battery,which is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours with the original charger,because the charging volt varies from battery to battery of the same brand and using this universal charger is definitely going to harm ur camera very worse,kindly go for the original charger and charge the battery and then put your camera on........


still if the same,then plz change your battery(lithium ion battery or the battery prescribed for the model,plz note:before changing battery make sure yu buy the battery specified for your cam)


thank you...take care
