Recharging the NiCd Battery
The Nikon Quick Charger DH-1 recharges a completely exhausted NiCd Battery DN-1 to about 80% capacity in a brief three hours. It has a voltage selector for inputs of 100, 117, 220 and 240V.

Setting the Proper Voltage
First, set the voltage selector on the back of the Quick Charger to the right voltage. This is done by inserting a small coin or similar object into the slot of the voltage selector and turning it so that the red dot is opposite the correct 100, 117, 220 or 240V setting.
Charging the Battery
Unscrew the milled screw cap on the front panel and insert the NiCd battery into the battery well. Be sure that the plus side faces out, otherwise the quick charger will not work. Replacing the screw cap switches on the quick charger. Plug the power cord into an AC power source. The white neon power lamp on the front panel will glow green and the red neon charge-indicator lamp goes on with a red light to indicate start of charging.
Charging time depends on the power remaining in the NiCd battery, but normally a completely depleted battery will be recharged to 80% capacity in about three hours after which the charge-indicator lamp goes out. Unscrew the cap and remove the battery.
Note: The NiCd Battery DN-1 provides sufficient power for about one hour of continuous servo operation (at approx. 20 ) between aperture settings of f/1.4 and f/16. If longer operation is required, the use of the Battery Pack DB-1 or the AC/DC Converter MA-4 is recommended.
MA-3 Cold Weather Pack Jacket: To permit operation of the Nikon motor drives even under low-temperature conditions, Nikon provides the MA-3 Battery Pack Jacket. This is essentially a cold-weather battery pack jacket that connects to the motor drive via an MC-2 cord. Worn under the coat, the MA-3 accommodates either the MB-1 or MB-2 and utilizes body treat: to keep the batteries warm and delivering full power. Connection between the MA-3 and the motor drive is by means of the one meter long MC-2 connecting cord supplied. The two straps affixed to the jacket allow it to be slung from the neck, shoulder or waist.
