Buy rechargeable battery from Meijer. I have searched through internet and super markets, only find this store sells rechargeable CRV-3 battery and charger around $26 in total. The battery can be used to shot about 200 pics, and rechargeable with good quality recharger. I have bought twice from Ebay, but got non-chargeable battery and bad quality charger although it was claimed those are rechargeable battery. So I never trust ebay anymore.

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.
The problem is most likely the type of batteries you are using. Make sure they are rechargable. Normal batteries are not
strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or
rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much
stronger and should give you a good battery life. If you are already
using these, I suggest you take it back to where you bought it. Hope this helps, Gillian
20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batteries.
The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable
Lithium Ion batteries. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That
was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus
recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and
they still work great.
If you're using standard batteries, this sounds about right. Digital cameras **** down a great deal of power due to the multi-processors they use and all of the other electrical parts of the camera, such as the flash, exposure meter and lens functions. You can purchase Lithium-Ion batteries that are "AA" and rechargable. THe advantage of these batteries is a much longer life for the camera per charge and economy for you because you're not replacing batteries so often since these will be rechargable/reusable.
I had the same problem but I fixed it by buying 2 rechargable CRV3 batteries and the charger. At the time such batteries were not common, so although I got a brand that I never heard of (CTA) and they have been great, They last a long time and power is no longer an issue.
try energizer lithium batts- some cameras very very strange about batterys-have a sony that will only work w/ sony or energizer lithium-bought all other types and they do not work-i get 300-500 pics per set of lithiums-good luck
do you use alkeline batteries? if yes then they would end in 20-25 shots. Instead, use rechargable batteries of 2500 mah which will last long, very long. On my Cybershot H1, they give aproximate 350 shots with single recharge.
Go for Sony Original Batteries or Uniross brand also works fine.
If you're using regular alkaline batteries that?s fairly common. If you want longer life most people purchase rechargeable nickel-metal hydride batteries and a charger. Depending on the camera you?ll get 40 or more flash images out of a charging. I have two sets, one in the camera and one in the charger. Expect to pay about $5 to $10 for a set of four and around $10 or $20 for a charger, make sure its for nickel-metal hydride batteries and not the old style nickel-cadmium.
Good luck and don?t forget to rate this post.
The Lithium batteries that are provided with the camera will supply approximately 200 images. The Ni-MH batteries will provide approximate 100 shots per charge. The B-10LPB Lithium Polymer battery will allow 500 - 700 shots per charge and can be recharged approximately 500 times. B-12LPB Lithium Polymer Battery will deliver twice the power allowing 1000- 1400 shots per charge and can be recharged approximately 500 times. The Alkaline batteries, although can be used, is not recommended due to very low battery life.
