Also accelerated if the onboard battery is stuffed.

My Fujifilm S9600 draining batts rapidly...


Hi !! With your comments I was thinking on al old problem that I have with a Fuji S7000 using a CF card, it drains the battery very fast, but the problem was the CF card, not the camera, I switch to a XD memory card and problem solved, Are you using a CF memory card?

Battery life


Stop buying cheap batteries at Dollar Tree.

Buy ONLY good, fresh, duracell alkalines. I find these to last the longest with any intermittent use but heavy power drain device (like autofocus cameras)

Try and see. Def worth the money.
For freshness, look on the pack for expiry date BEFORE you buy... and get some spares too.

Lost date and time data


I had the same problem, the best solution that I found, was to make sure that I put the new batteries in with 30 secs, and the date etc, remained at the correct time.

S9500 : rapid battery discharge


Check your focus control on the left side of the camera is not set to "continual focus" CF, as this will constantly adjust focus and run your battery down quickly.

Also NiCd batteries are not very useful -use Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMh) which last longer and don't suffer from memory effects. These batteries don't reach full capacity until after a number of recharge/drain cycles.

CF Excessive Power


Nikons and Fujis keep the CF slot powered, and "poll" it every now and then to see if a card has been removed or inserted. So yes, a camera may drain batteries much faster with a CF card than it does with an XD. But if it really does do this, then someone at Fuji deserves to be on the street, looking for a new job. Polling a card every few seconds does not have to be a traumatic experience to the camera. A Nikon can sleep for months, and not show appreciable battery drain. After what I've seen in the horribly slow CF write times of the S3, and the large artificial difference in write times between CF and xD on that camera, I'd say someone (or several "someones") at Fuji is doing everything in their power to make CF look bad and steer people into xD.
