Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 Camcorder
Purchased unit many years ago. Great Digital Camera - work fine. Supplied battery started getting old. Replaced with two NP-F730 Li-ion batteries . 7.2V, 3700mAh.
They never came up to scratch! Fully charged and inserted the camera indicator only showed 3/4 charged. I get about 20 mins only on playback.
I have a constant current lab power unit whith which I could fully charge for 10 hours at 370mA. Should I do so?
The charger is erratic? I cannot run the unit from main (via the charger- no green VTR/Camera lamp.), nor can I charge the in camera unit and the one in the charger at the same time.
Is it the charger, supplied connecting cable/connectors or the batteries?
Can you help please?
regards George Frost
Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries
