Question about Energizer Duo Battery Charger for AA and AAA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries

1 Answer

Energizer +AA NIMH Batteries consumed quickly

Hi, I m using Energizer +AA NIMH Batteries for my Canon powershot S5IS camera. Recently, the batteries are consumed too quickly, on an average of 60-70 snaps, whereas it's orighinal capacity is 420-450 snaps. I am not sure whether the problem is with my Energizer Charger or Energizer batteries. I've checked the camera with the service centre nad there is no problem with the camera.

Please note that on your charger Owner's manual, I've read a point which says "Batteries that have not been used for several weeks or months (as in my case) may require 2 or 3 charging cycles to reach full capacity. Can you pls explain what it means by '2 or 3 charging cycles'. Pls explain me the time frame.

If the above paragraph does not pertains to the actual solution then pls suggest whether should I go with the brand new batteries. Also pls suggest that if one goes for brand new batteries, does he has take a brand new charger of the same brand. This was the tip given to me by the Canon Service Executive..

Awaiting your timely help..

There are many grades of batteries under the same manufacturers name. They have a different Ah rating. The lower the Ah the shorter the time they will last.

SOURCE: what does it mean when a household battery charger

When the charger light is changing from red to green that is a indication that it is charging the battery. When the charge is complete the light will stay green until the battery is removed or the charger is unplugged.

SOURCE: nimh batteries give low batt signal even when

the trouble with rechargable batteries is their voltage is low to start with even when charged. they only give 1.2 volts each instead of 1.5 volts from proper AA bateries. I use Energizer Lithiums in all my camers and they are great and last a long time. You can find cheap suppliers on eBay I use a site called 7dayshop.com in jersey (europe).

It could be possible that 1 of your 2300 mAh AA battery is defective.
Try to charge only 2 2300 mAh batteries at a time to see if it can charge.

Can I use only kodak batteries in my easyshare or is the energizer AA batteries ok? Will I ruin my camera if I install energizer?


Hi. You can use any make of 'normal' non-rechargeable alkaline AA batteries, or rechargeable NiMH AA batteries, but those will also need a battery charger.

Rechargeable batteries and a charger are more expensive to start with but are much more economical in the long run and especially if you use your camera fairly often.

The latest 'Hybrio' types hold their charge better when stored, but again they are a little more expensive but they can all be used in most other gadgets. The ordinary NiMh batteries do not hold the voltage quite as well as Hybrio, or even the older type of NiMh batteries but this does not often matter.

You will find that the capacity of rechargeable batteries varies from about 850 to 2100 'mah' (milli amp hours), so some will last longer than others but otherwise it does not matter which type you use. The latest 'Hybrio' types hold their charge better when stored, but again they are a little more expensive.

You will not damage your camera if you install energizer, so have fun with it!

Display says to change batteries..have done and still says to change batteries


Strange as this solution might sound,m it works; clean the battery contacts in the camera, as well as the battery itself with alcohol. Even a small bit of oxidation, at the current level the camera requires, drops quite a few mvolts, enough for the camera to think your battery is running low.

Canon PowerShot A95 is using up batteries too fast


My experience seems to show that it's not your camera as much as it is that batteries (AA type cells) don't have the "juice" they used to have. Try using the Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries. I've turned many of my customers on to them, and they swear by them!

My Canon Powershot A2000 displays a low battery even when I've just replaced with new. I've replaced several times, each time with two identical batteries, each time from a different package. I may be able...


Hi,
For the best results, I recommend you to use Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice.
Else......
AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.

A580 wont switch on with new correctly inserted batteries


Check for battery current ratings, Canon cameras need AA batteries with current rating above 1200 mAh, I use Energizer rechargeable batteries for my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. The batteries last more if we use the flash option wisely.

Canon PowerShot A630 power problem: NiMH batteries no longer work


I dont agree, I have tried several different batterie types and the batteries are draining almost instantly with the camera and they are not actually being drained. I think the camera itself is at the end of its life...as I have used rechargeable batteries for the last few years and now they wont even show as being charged on the camera. It stinks Im in your same spot now...no batteries are lasting even the brand new lithium ones...it has nothing to do with the battery "juice" but something with the canon supply power not recognizing/recieving the juice. Im not a canon expert, but I think the problem is more than the battery here Steve and im confused at the solution as well.

I decided to send you this from the Canon website to see if this helps: 
Issue: What are the specifications for batteries that I can use in my camera?
Solution: Recommended AA batteries for your camera.

What types of AA batteries can I use? Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries For the best results, we recommend using Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice.
battery_charger_kit_cbk4_300.jpgThe Canon Battery & Charger Kit includes a battery charger and four rechargeable AA-size NiMH (nickel metal hydride) batteries. The battery kit can be purchase from the Canon eStore.
AA alkaline batteries AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.
  • ALL AA-based PowerShot digital cameras (including A Series and S5 IS / SX100 IS-type):"Never use manganese (non-alkaline) batteries."
  • Since the performance of alkaline batteries may differ according to brand, the operating time of the batteries you purchase may not be as long as the batteries that came with the camera.
Precautions:
  • Camera operating time may shorten at low temperatures when alkaline batteries are used. Also due to their specifications, alkaline batteries may expire faster than NiMH batteries. If you are using the camera in cold areas or for a long time, we recommend using Canon AA-size NiMH Battery Kit (a four piece set).
  • While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries, performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
  • Never mix unused and partially used batteries. Always load two or four (depending on camera model) fresh (or fully recharged) batteries at the same time.
  • Be careful to load the batteries with their positive (+) and negative (-) ends in the right direction.
  • Never mix batteries of different types or from different manufacturers. All batteries should be identical.
  • Before inserting the batteries, wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth. Oil from ones skin or other dirt may cause a considerable reduction in the number of recordable images or reduced usage time.
  • Battery performance deteriorates at low temperatures (especially with alkaline batteries). If you are using the camera in cold areas and batteries are running down faster than they should, you may be able to restore performance by placing batteries in an inner pocket to warm them up prior to use. But be careful that you don't put the batteries into a pocket together with a metal key chain or other metallic objects, as these objects may cause batteries to short-circuit.
  • If you do not plan to use the camera for a long time, remove the batteries from the camera and store them in a safe place. Batteries may leak and damage the camera if left installed during prolonged periods of non-use.
WARNING
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is completely or partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk that such batteries may leak, overheat, or burst. Always check the seals on store-bought batteries before loading them, as some batteries may come with defective seals. Do not use batteries with defective seals.
