The life of my batteries is drastically reduced compared to how long they should last. I put them on charge for the right amount of time and my battery charger is indicating full charge when i turn it off.
After putting them in my camera they last about 10 minuites and i get the empty battery icon and the camera turns itself off. But if i take the battery out and warm it in my hand, once i put it back in the camera i get the half battery icon and it works again for a few minuites.
I have tried the two obvious solutions of buying a new battery and a new charger, but this has had no effect and i still have a drastically reduced battery life. I have bought a canon brand battery but my charger is only a canon compatable charger.

1.Remove the main battery and the small backup
battery (CR2025) from the battery compartment. Charge your main battery and put
both batteries back in once your main battery has been charged. Sitting without
batteries will give the camera a chance to reset itself.
2.You may have a bad CF card. Try starting your
camera without a CF card or use another.
3.Try reloading the firmware (camera's operating
system) using this link Canon. http://web.canon.jp/imaging/EOS10D/10D_firmware-e.html
Be careful to follow instructions exactly
as restarting the camera in the middle of a firmware update will brick it and
you will need to send it back to Canon for repair.
The probleme: The Shuteer Has A cable Connected to Recorder Maybe The cable Has Cutted when you Shut ,or Maybe Cutted When You Charged The Battery cause When your put your camera on the charge , the cable goes be hot and it should be cutted .
Solving The Probleme : 1) I advise You To Change The Cable 2) Push The Reset Button 3) Charge It Again
This is a year old post and I would hope you have an answer by now, if not no harm I guess. The batteries that first came with Canon's 1 Series cameras where pretty good sort of. Mine is a (NI-MH Battery) and would last about 300 frames with lots of viewing and powering the IS lens. Big thing about these batteries you need to use them up completely before charging if you don't and charge the thing part way through the battery has a memory and you then get less use before having to charge it again. I then bought two more third party batteries which do not have the memory. When on a shoot I load up the Canon battery shoot through it and then switch it out for the "No Name" battery which B.T.W. is 2200mAh and I get about 500 frames, lots of viewing and powering the IS lens. Bonus was to me I got two third party batteries for half the cost of one Canon battery
well got a little advice from a friend and here is what he suggested the lens might not be on all the way so try taking it off and putting it back on as stupid as this sounds it actually worked when i did it on mine also even though you've probably done it already clean the battery's contacts and the ones in the camera and hopefully that's all the bigger the problem is. good luck
Well replace it by all means - what does the Manual have to say about this particular battery
It is usual for a full manual to be on a PDF file on the software disk - have you checked this out?
