    I charge the rechargable batteries, but still get the same "battery exhausted" message. The batteries are relatively new, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

    I have the same problem. Brand new batteries last 5-10 shots with flash, 20 or so shots without the flash. The batteries test out at 1.4 volts, which runs anything else just fine. Another brand of camera I own had the same problem, and a firmware update fixed it. Unfortunately the Coolpix L18 has no firmware updates available. Anything else we can try? I heard that 2000 mA lithium batteries might help...

I have the same problem. Canon support claims they have never had this problem before, but it is all over the Internet. I won't be buying another Canon for the support, although the camera is sweet.

I have tested everything I can see including the batteries and there's nothing wrong with the batteries.

However, when I eyeball the height of the batteries, I see that one is lower than the others. So I assume that this connection is not as solid as the rest and may be why low battery indicator shows even when the batteries are testing fully charged.

On the SX20 you can't bend down the terminals at the top, so you have to reach in to the bottom and bend the contacts on the short battery up. I believe that this is just a temporary solution because it doesn't fix my camera permanently.

But try it. It is a free fix and can't hurt.

IMHO

Nikon L100 shows battery exhausted error message after installing new batteries. Unable to perform any operations on camera


That's the bug in Nokin L100, update the firmware version from 1.0 to 1.1, this will solve the battery exhaust problem. Firmware version 1.0 has only 2 battery (Alkaline and Lethium) option where as Firmware version 1.1 has Nickle battery also. But, to update the firmware you need to have EH-67 AC Adapter to give power to the camera.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.

Battery getting exhanusted


Sounds like you need to call Canon. I use Energizer e2 batteries and take 700 pictures and several videos during a show I attend and still have battery life. Even with normal batteries you should be able to take several hundred pictures. Are you still under warranty?
