[Question] Let me know about DB-60, a rechargeable battery.

The DB-60 is a lithium-ion battery. It is economical, because you can recharge it with a battery charger and which allows you to use it repeatedly.


  • Charging time is about 2 hours (at 25 degrees C.)
  • Use a battery charger, BJ-6 (Specially for the DB-60.)
  • If you do not use a camera for a long time, remove a rechargeable battery from a camera, and keep the battery in a cold place.
