    Have several sets of NiMH and same with all, will only work with new Alkaline batteries giving 1.5V output, which doesn't last for long at 1.2V camera will not work which Canon says it should.

How old are the rechargeables? Also, am assuming you are using NiMH and not the inferior low-power NiCads. Rechargeables NiMH really aren't meant to last more than a year or two, regardless of how often they were recharged. If the batteries are older than a year, suggest trying a new set.

My headlights dont work on my sonic 50 could it be the voltage regulator

Hi, Keith if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

Batteries run out fast

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

It wont charge

You can't charge the A80 by plugging in a USB cable. The cable is for downloading photos only. Assuming that you are using rechargeable AA batteries, you need to remove the batteries and place them in an external charger to recharge them.

It won't work with rechargeable batteries, but does work with ordinary batteries...hmmm?

Rechargeable batteries are rated 1,2V while ordinary one's use 1,5V. Thats why.

Can i charge the batteries insitu on my canonpowershot A80 camera using only a USB lead and charger

No. The A80 is not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries with the A80, you must recharge them outside the camera using a separate charger.

Powershot A80 problem: green and red lights around subject


Recharging the batteries seemed to solve it. Although I had not received the low battery warnning and this phenomenon had not occurred at other times when the batteries were low, it seems to have fixed the problem.
