Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
My canon batteries(duracell powerpix AA's) went dead about 2 weeks ago. I kept forgetting to buy new ones since no events were coming up. I remembered the other day and thought I would try rechargeables. I bought the Energizer brand with the charger to them...charged them for 10hrs and put them in the camera..nothing. No power. I took them back and exchanged them for the Rayovac Hybrid with charger and it said they were ready to use, already charged. Put them in the camera..no power..so I thought, maybe they drained in the package. So plugged them in, paper said to charge them for 8 hrs. Well, they charged all night from 9pm until 11am today. took them out, cooled them down and put them in. Still no power. I did notice that the LED lights showing its charging was still on. I reread the instructions and it says LED will turn off when batteries are fully charged. now that I think about it, the energizers were still lit up too when I tried them out. Were they not fully charged? Could this cause them not to work in the camera? Because I tried them on my tv remote and they worked just fine. but wouldn't power up my camera. Guess I need to buy more duracell powerpix alkalines and check to make sure my camera IS working? I just really want to use rechargeables now that its summer time. Should I keep charging them until the LED light shuts off?
I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.
