A fully charged battery will last about 4 hours (when operating at full capacity (Camera, Wi-Fi,Image processing, Sensors)), but results may change based on the user's environment. It can be swapped to a fully charged battery without system shut down (Hot Swap Function), so that the user can operate the system continuously.
The hot swap must be performed one battery at a time.

It takes about 3 hours to fully charge MOVERIO Pro BT-2000/2200 with the AC adapter. The quad battery charger will also charge the batteries in about 3 hours.

It can be used in light rain (less than 4mm/h), as it is waterproof with the IP54 standard. Use in heavier rain for a long time causes breakdown. Moreover, deterioration in waterproof and dustproof performance can be caused due to customer's use, environment, and change over time. As a result we cannot guarantee lifetime waterproof and dustproof performance.
