To insert a battery into the Canon rebel, open the battery door found on the bottom of the camera by pulling on the latch and swinging the door open. The battery will slide into place and lock in. Close the battery door. The battery will only fit in one way, so if it does not seem to be working, the battery is not oriented correctly.
To charge the battery, slide it into the provided charger and then plug the charger into a standard 120 VAC outlet. DO NOT CHARGE MORE THAN 24 HRS. DO NOT USE ANY CHARGER OTHER THAN THE ONE PROVIDED WITH THE CAMERA.
When the camera is powered off, it takes several seconds to clean the sensor. Because of this, make sure that the "Sensor Cleaning" logo is no longer on the screen before removing the battery.
The Canon Rebel shows charge level in three stages: Battery OK, Battery Low, and Needs to be Charged. To conserve battery life, the Rebel will go into a sleep mode after a period of disuse. To wake the camera, press the shutter button down halfway. If you know you will not be using the camera, it is best to fully turn the camera off.
