Buying recharable batteries will not solve the problem of the battery draining quickly but will help save $ by not having to purchase so many disposable batteries. Check your user guide to see what kind of batteries your camera will accept. Lithium ion rechargeable is the best if compatible. Lithium ion disposible (CRV3) will last a long time as a secondary choice if compatible. Some cameras drain batteries more quickly than others. Just a tip to help reduce the drain: don't use your LCD screen when unnecessary (such as scrolling through several of your pics in-between snapping pics).
When you purchased the camera, there should have been a charge in the box (you got a lithium-ion rechargable battery with the camera, no?). You put the battery in the charger and plug the charger in the wall.
Stop using this camera (Olympus FE-210), warn all your friends and relatives about this piece of junk, send the camera back to Olympus COD. Take the money you save from not buying more batteries for this camera and buy a decent camera from a reputable manufacturer.
