Bala -
From the docs, it looks like leaving a battery in the camera is OK.
Myself, I plan to use an uninterruptible-power-supply, so a battery should not add any security.
This is from the v1.15 instructions (EX3)-

Notes on performing upgrade
• If you are using a Windows computer, you must have
the standard device driver supplied with Windows.
• If the computer’s OS is Windows Vista or Windows 7,
then you must have administrator privileges.
• If the computer’s OS is Windows XP, then the
Microsoft .NET Framework runtime is required.
• Only connect one PMW-EX1/EX3 camcorder to the
computer for upgrade.
Use the BC-U1/U2 Battery Charger to connect the
PMW-EX1/EX3 to an AC power source. You can
mount the battery pack at the same time to prevent
problems in case the AC power source is interrupted.

• If you interrupt the upgrade process, you must start over
from the beginning. You cannot interrupt the process
after installing some of the modules, and then resume
the process where you left off.
