1 Getting Started
Optional battery: You can also use a Kodak EasyShare Li-Ion rechargeable battery, 1050 mAh. HOWEVER, the 1050 mAh battery is a lower power battery. Expect approximately 30% fewer pictures per full charge than with the 1700 mAh battery included with your camera.
We recommend using only a Kodak EasyShare Li-Ion rechargeable battery. Not all manufacturer's 3.7V Li-Ion rechargeable batteries are compatible with the camera. Damage caused by unauthorized accessories is not covered under warranty.

Extending Battery Life
Purchase an optional Kodak EasyShare camera dock 6000 (see Using the Camera Dock 6000). The camera dock 6000 powers your camera, transfers pictures, and is also a battery charger for the Li-Ion battery included with your camera.
Purchase an optional Kodak 5-volt AC adapter to power your camera, or use the one packaged with the Kodak EasyShare camera dock 6000 (see Using the AC Adapter to Power the Camera).
Purchase an optional Kodak EasyShare printer dock 6000 (see Print With or Without a Computer). The printer dock 6000 powers your camera, makes 4 x 6 prints with or without a computer, transfers pictures, and is also a battery charger for the Li-Ion battery included with your camera.
Dirt on the battery contacts can affect battery life. Wipe the contacts with a clean, dry cloth before loading batteries in the camera.
Battery performance is reduced at temperatures below 41° F (5° C). Carry spare batteries when using your camera in cold weather, and keep them warm. Do not discard cold batteries that do not work; when they return to room temperature, they may be usable.
Battery Safety and Handling
Do not allow batteries to touch metal objects, including coins. Otherwise, a battery may short circuit, discharge energy, become hot, or leak.
