Polaroid i733 that eats batteries

Re: Polaroid i733 that eats batteries

Sounds like you need to change the camera settings and cut down on turning the camera on and off between shots. Viewing pics on the LCD screen eats up the battery life the most... just an FYI.

Difference between lithium battery and AA size battery for camera

"Lithium" refers to the chemical makeup of the battery. "AA" refers to the size of the battery. There are such things as lithium AA batteries.

If your camera takes AA batteries then lithiums will give you more shots than other types. They will also cost more.

The batteries in my DSC H1 camera only last about 10 % as long as they used to. New batteries don't solve the problem. Can the camera be fixed? Larry

I would suggest trying a different type of battery. If you're using AA batteries, often alkaline ones don't work. Try lithium or even rechargable AAs. If it's a rechargable lithium type (a square battery) try charging the battery fully and then using it completely to refresh the lithium cells. Try cleaning the contacts (silver pieces where the battery touches the camera) with a soft cloth as they can easily get corroded. Generally battery failure is not to do with the camera itself.

My Kodak EasyShare C180 Digital camera, came with "Kodak" batteries after those died, I inserted new batteries, and now everytime I try to turn the camera on, it doesn't respond. I have tried Lithium...

hi i just to have silimar problem with old panasonic, kodak and polaroid cameras.

try to use Duracel alkalines, not the cheap ones with out alkaline those are for remotes and clocks. flashlights.

if you are using rechargables make sure they are 2700mha AA NiMH or higher. lower won't work(there is another kind of rechargeables batteries those don't work on it).

for the lithium i never used them. they were kind of expensive compare to alkalines.
If i help. please rate me :)

I'm just looking for advice on AA batteries for my Polaroid i1035. I have been told that NiMH are the best and that I can recharge them. Does anyone have any recommendations for brands? Thanks, NBr

Hi there.
The best batteries i found for my camera are Duracell Alkaline batteries, they seem to last a fair while.
As for rechargeable batteries, i find they don't last at all.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

I had bought a Polaroid i733 model last march from Walgreen's. I am able to take pics but, as soon as I try to view them it shuts off...i can turn it back on to take more pics. I have used many different...

Regular alkaline batteries (even new ones) often have trouble powering digital cameras which require a fairly high and sustained level of power output. Lithium ion batteries and NiMH rechargable batteries (maH > 2500) are better suited in this kind of device. Make sure you have the correct battery type selected in the Setup menu.

My fe-210/x-775 keeps showing battery empty even with new batteries. the camera is only a month old. sometimes it wont open, and sometimes it wont close

if it uses AA-try a set of energizer lithium batterys as a experiment-i can pull 300-500 shots on a single set-some cameras are very strange about batterys and it's trial and error w/types-own a sony and reg batterys last 20 pics and dies-lithium have been fantastic for me

Choosing Batteries

Your camera requires four AA size batteries.There are several factors that contribute to battery life: NiMH: This is the best solution for enjoyment and cost savings. NiMH batteries typically last longer per charge than the average alkaline batteries. NiMH batteries are rechargeable batteries, so they can be used several times and thereby reduce the expense of continually purchasing new batteries. NiMH batteries are typically sold with a power adapter for charging. The life of these batteries can often be determined by the mAh rating, the higher the mAh rating on the battery, the longer that they will last. NiMH batteries do not have the memory effect associated with NiCd batteries, which means that these batteries can be recharged at any time and at your convenience (you do not have to wait for the batteries to completely drain between charges). Lithium: Energizer has introduced a new series of Lithium batteries that provide optimum performance and long life for disposable AA size batteries. Laboratory studies shows that Lithium batteries last more than three times as long as standard Alkaline batteries. This means many more hours of fun and satisfaction with your digital camera. These lithium batteries are not rechargeable, they are long lasting. Alkaline: Using the LCD display, downloading images, playback, zoom and flash all require some battery power to operate and may decrease the number of shots per set of batteries. Performance may also vary based on the Alkaline batteries selected. To significantly increase battery life, be sure to turn off the LCD when it is not in use. The LCD consumes the most amount of battery power. The benefit of being able to use alkaline batteries is that you can find then almost anywhere if needed. Manganese: If you are using manganese batteries, the typical battery life will be about 2 - 5 shots. Then the camera will indicate that battery power is low and may shut-down. To avoid this experience, use either Alkaline or NiMH batteries. Optimum Solution: Use a set of NiMH batteries for longer use and to reduce the expense of continually buying new batteries. It may also be a good idea to keep a spare set of NiMH batteries for other devices that require AA size batteries on a regular basis. Use AA Alkaline batteries when the NiMH batteries need to be recharged and you want to continue enjoying the use of your camera.
