Question about Olympus FE-20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can you trickle charge the Olympus FE-20 via the usb cable?

I left the charger and cable at home ... I travel excessivey and don't to carry extra cables.

Like all my other electronics, they will charge while connected to my laptop via USB cable. My laptop is on and connected to the power.

Does this specific camera charge via USB or do you have tocarry all the cables etc? (so much for a light weight no hassle camera)

Very few cameras will charge through USB ports. This is only to connect to computer to access pictures. Your camera will not charge via USB. I suggest to many people that using cameras that take AA batteries is the best cameras to buy when traveling. Many camera owner fall victim to different voltage outlets when travelling.

Why won't my Pride Go-Go Elite Traveller batteries charge using a trickle charger? The batteries are new, but my charger quit working.


Hi Robert , can you clarify what you mean by a trickle charger ?, any chance of a photo of the charger ?

using a standard gel battery charger , the charger will charge the batteries in question and once fully charged, the charger will trickle charge the batteries.. This is a standard operation and recommended by battery makers...

Regards
Rob

The battery will not charge ,usb port with out the battery camera will not power up


This camera does not charge via the USB cable, the cable is used to download the photos to the computer.
This camera uses a recharageable lithium battery and the battery needs to be removed and connected to an external battery charger to be charged.
You can download a user manual from this WEB site.

I lost the battery charger of my olympus fe-320. Can i charge it using the usb port ?


No, you cannot charge the battery in the camera via the USB port. You need to use the LI-40C or LI-41C charger or equivalent.

One source for a replacement charger (along with a battery and a camera case) is

MESSAGE STATES THAT BATTERY IS LOW, AND KEEPS SHUTTING OFF. BATTERY SHOWN ON SCREEN AS DEAD.


plug it in to your computer via the usb cable for a few hours, the car and home chargers are not recommended for the initial charge as there only a trickle charge...if it still hasn't charged up using the usb cable, there is probably a problem with the usb port(charging port)

let me know how you make out after charging it via the usb cable that was supplied with the unit.

Can i charge an Olympus fe-4000 with a usb cable connected to my computer?


No. The camera does not incorporate any charging circuitry. You have to use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery. The USB cable is strictly for transferring pictures and videos to the computer.

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?


It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

CANT GET A CHARGE


These cameras can't be charged via the USB because there is no charger built into the camera. You will need to buy a new charger.
