the hole for the battery will give you the clue
if it has a single groove with a spring at one end it will be either AAA or AA battery ( depending on the groove width
2 grooves will again be AAA or AA battery
a square hole with the terminals together in a plastic cap will be a 9 volt battery
a round hole with a metal finger will be a button battery possible a 2063 size
the owners manual will have the right battery listed or it will be listed on line in the manufacturers specifications for that model
I have been on love with my Olympus e-20n since the day I bought it. Yes, it's only 5 mega-pixel but the SLR design and full manual functions out weigh the limited resolution. I was very disappointed when I tried to buy a replacement high capacity battery and Lithium Polymer 8400ah battery was not only discontinued but totally not available (except for some used ones on Ebay and I'm just not brave enough to buy a used battery)
So crafting a replacement became my Memorial Day Weekend project. One quick trip to Fry's Electronics later and I had the solution. A 6-cell AA battery holder, 6ea AA NiMH 2600ah rechangeables and a 9-volt battery clip with pig tail is all I needed.
Crack open the external battery add-on (looks like a power winder on a 35mm SLR) 4-screws on the botton, one inside the battery well and 2 under the rubber hand grip. Locate the battery connector and un-screw the RED and BLACK prime power leads from each side. Cover the connector with electric tape or an insulated cover, your done with it, forever.
Solder the pigtail 9-volt battery clip to the RED and BLACK leads (red to red and black to black, duh!). Extend the 9v battery clip outside the case and re-assemble the case.
The 6 AA-cell battery holder will fit nicely into the battery door cup and if you pack the vacant space in the battery well with sponge or an old gym sock the battery will not slide around.
Fill the AA battery holder with the rechargeable batteries you have freshly re-charged and hook up the 9v clip. Thats it, new life for the my old companion.
Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.
Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.
If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or
Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.
I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.
This camera takes ordinary AA batteries. You can use alkaline ones, which are mostly not rechargeable, or you can use a set of AA size NiMH rechargeable ones, which will last longer per charge than a set of alkalines. You will need a separate charger for the batteries, they won't charge in the camera. You can buy a charger complete with a set of batteries cheaply online or in shops. Get ones marked 2300 mAH or 2700 mAH if you can- they will last longer than ones with lower ratings.
