I assume we're not discussing the Sony DSC-W55 since that doesn't use AAA batteries.
The battery life varies depending both on the camcorder and the type of batteries. In general, lithiums will last longer than alkalines, which will last longer than a single charge on NiMHs. On cameras that give you the option, you'll use less juice shutting off the display and using the viewfinder. Many manuals will give you estimates of battery life, but these are estimates only, the battery life also depends on how YOU use your camcorder.

Why do batteries run down in two weeks

You don't tell us the brand of camera or the type of batteries. Some digital cameras seem to eat batteries really fast. If your camera uses AA or AAA you could try rechargable batteries . They cost a bit more but usually last a lot longer in digital cameras and can be re-used many times.

I can only guess that you are not using a charger that's designed for the battery. I have experienced the same problem.

How long do Kodak KLIC-7001 batteries usually last? I just bought a new charger (K7700) for my battery and when I put it in the green light flashes and then the red and then goes right off. Why is this...

the battery might be bad. One thing I learned with drills, is to never charge a battery directly after use (if it feels warm), and do not use when warm from the charger. I'm not sure on specialized batteries, but normal batteries like AA, AAA etc. only last about one year or so.

My Konaki KO-52A is not working when I put the AAA batteries in. Is there a certain brand it takes?

Hello -- All AAA batteries are the same voltage so there is no difference between them.
Some just last longer like Enegizer which is why they are more expensive.
Does the camera need disposable batteries or did it come with a charger to use re-chargable ?
Also make sure they are the right way round as AAA are small enough to fit either way.
Look for the + sign for the first battery. Ray

Hi, Can I use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries in my Fuji S1730 camera. Thank you. Roy.

Hi Roy,

If your camera uses normal AA or AAA batteries you will have no problems with the rechargeable batteries. If you are considering to buy rechargeable batteries always try to buy the higher mAh range batteries. The higher the mAh the longer battery power will last.

Feel free to share if this solved your question!

Can the BC-NH01 battery charger also charge AAA

In reality, yes. The AAA batteries are to short for the charger, so some fiddling is required. I'd recommend you buy a suitable multicharger instead.
