They are often fitted with rechargable AAA cells. These can be charged by putting the phone on the charger base. Obviously the base must be plugged into power. You could alternatively take the rechargable cells out and charge them in a standard charger. The radios will also work with non-rechargable batteries but don't try and charge them or use the charging base.
All batteries will eventually fail to hold a charge. The battery chemistry and how you charge it can change how long the battery will last. The DMC-FS4 has a Lithium-ion battery so it shouldn't have as much of the memory issue of older rechargeable batteries. (This is the "you routinely recharge the battery when it's at 50% then it always stops working at 50% charge" problem.)
How old is your battery? Eventually you will need a new battery but the time to replacement will depend on the number of recharge cycles. With a Li-ion battery, I'd expect several thousand recharges before failure. Temperature and usage will effect this. The battery does lose charge even when not used.
Be careful, some versions of the firmware look for Panasonic's specific batteries or a "that match the Panasonic rigorous specs".
I've seen a few devices where the charger failed before the battery. If a new battery doesn't seem to be charging, replace the charger. I hope this helps.
I am assuming you are reading the battery charge correctly. If so you need a new rechargable battery. Special battery so it is a little expensive. Make sure the person knows it is a "rechargable battery" you want. A regular battery will not work properly or recharge.
I don't believe these batteries with this camera are rechargable. the spec sheet calls for alkaline batteries. Do the batteries in the camera say rechargable on them. There is a Kodak battery charger with batteries , but that is a multipurpose charger for many cameras, and all it does is charg batteries like any other batter charger.
It could be due to the fact that some rechargeable batteries are slightly different shapes and the nobbly bit on the + end doesn't reach far enough in, as it is the case with Maplin AA batteries. In my case I placed a small drop of solder with a soldering iron on the + nipple and now they reach into any device.
I have the same player. You can use a rechargable battery. But you cannot charge the battery by connecting it to the USB. You must charge the battery with a AAA battery charger - they sell them at walmart for like $15. The rechargable battery really works excellent in this player - I listen to my player all day long and rechargeable batteries are the only way to go for me! Make sure you have four batteries though so you can always have a backup charged as the charger takes 8 hours to charge the batteries.
I have the Cobra Microtalk 4100 FRS radios with charging base. After changing the batteries with new nimh rechargables the charge light would not illuminate and the unit would not charge. I noticed the original batteries had a metal band around one end. This band makes a small connection inside the battery compartment on the first battery. Seems to be a cheap way to ensure you dont try to recharge the unit with non-rechargable batteries installed. I rapped a small piece of tinfoil around one end of the first battery in the new set then popped it back in and now they will charge correctly again. Dont try this with non-rechargable batteries! I would recomend buying original replacement batteries.
try taking out the batteries, and clean the connectors that the batteries touch, and the ends of the batteries (if recharagable). Sometimes a dirty connector can make the batteries seem that they are dead even if they are rechargable. If the camera works with new disposable batteries but not with the rechargable ones, then you may need to purchase some new rechargable ones.
