It is probably the voltage regulator or rectifier, as the bike runs check the voltage of the battery it should read 14 volts if it only reads 12 the battery is not recieving enough volts to maintain the batteries charge, go to bike the probaly have the part you need.

How old is the battery? Have it load tested at a car parts store. It sounds like an old or bad battery, Do you remember where it was bought? Some new batteries fail right away, take it back they will replace it.

Unplug the alternator and see if the problem stops, if so replace it, a short inside the alternator can cause this problem, however still test good, and keep the battery charged and cause the computer to throw this code. Its possible the belt is a tooth off, however you would experience more trouble than what you have.

if this happens even to new batteries, it may no longer be an issue with the batteries, but it can be an issue with the camera itself. check the maximum number of shots that the camera can take with the batteries per its specification. if it should produce more, it would be a good ide ato check with Canon to have the camera checked.

Recently bought Craftsman Lithium battery & charger that failed.

Sounds like your charger is only for NiCad batteries. With most brands, the new Lithium chargers will also charge the old NiCads, but the old NiCad chargers will not charge the new Lithium batteries. You will be very happy with the lithiums once you are able to fix the problem. As for Craftsman, buy Craftsman hand tools such as wrenches and sockets but I'd look elsewhere for battery powered tools.
