There is a switch on my camcorder battery that switches from RED to BLACK. What is its purpose?
This switch does not operate any function on the battery. It is simply used as a self reference tool. For instance say you had several of the same battery. How would you tell yourself which ones were charged and which ones you've used? Simply switch it to one color RED to tell yourself it's charged and BLACK to tell yourself it's dead.
I am taking my camcorder overseas where the voltage and current is different than the U.S. Do I need a voltage adapter in order to charge my camcorder's batteries?
The battery chargers which come with JVC camcorders sold in the U.S. are designed to operate on power from 110 to 240 Volts at 50 or 60 Cycles AC. All that is needed to use the battery charger overseas is a plug adapter to connect into a foreign electrical outlet. These are generally available through a store which carries electrical supplies.
