The Battery

The Aurora battery is an NP-50, standard 'fuji-type' photo battery. Varieties of NP-50 batteries can be found on Amazon. For an example: Click HERE.

Charge the Battery first:
   -Insert the battery into its slot.
   -Plug the included USB cable into the micro USB port. To access the USB port, pull out the rubber flap under the Settings dial. Charge via a powered-on laptop or desktop PC.

It takes about two hours to fully charge the battery and the camera needs to be turned OFF to charge. A green light will flash on the camera and turn off when complete.

A fully charged battery is generally good for about two hours of continuous video recording.
