Charging: when an offensive player runs into a defender who has established position; this is an offensive foul.

**A defensive player does not have to be stationary to take a charge. he or she simply must have established a legal guarding position. The defense can move backward and sideways.**


The term 'charging' implies that the battery of the product is being filled with direct current electricity. When the product has finished charging, you will be able to use it for a certain time without having to supply any energy yourself.
