Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7430 Digital Camera
Got a Kodak Easyshare 721 camera that came with non-rechargable batteries, but they lasted a LONG time. I don't have a dock or recharger. When they finally died, I put regular AA batteries in that were dead in a matter of minutes. I bought rechargeables, charged them fully, and they never lasted more than 4 or 5 minutes on a full charge. Thought maybe the batteries or charger were bad. Bought new Kodak rechargeables, followed charging directions exactly, same problem. Why does my camera go thru batteries so fast???

This model is renowned for poor battery life. Some people say using the CRV3 battery lasts a lot longer but my advice is to buy NimH batteries with at least 2600mah. Some Nimh are only 700mah and obviously will last less than a third the time of a 2600. Keeping the use of the LCD to a minimum will increase battery life and using the flash puts a tremendous drain on the batteries so if you can do without the flash switch it off. Combine these tips with a set of 2600mah batteries and I'll guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised. As a sideline I always have a good laugh when I see an Olympics opening at night or a firework display and all you can see is thousands of flashes going off which the majority only reach about 12 feet maximum and the parade being shot is some 300 feet away.

the camera will work with any brand of lithium but only the KLIC 8000 battery will work as a rechargeable
please look at your getting started guide and check page 1, there's an illustration of the 3 types of batts that will work:
lithium crv3, lithium aa and klic 8000
ni-mh is really not compatible
please check at the bottom of your camera, the three types of batts I mentioned are engraved at the battery door

Lithium is actually one of the most widely used as it contains a higher charge. As for alkaline batteries they dont hold a high charge and may cause problems with your digital camera.
I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply. Thanks.
