NiMH tends to have a "memory". What this means is that the batteries will get used to being only charged and discharged a certain amount. What could be happening is that the battery THINKS it is charged when it is not... or.. it THINKS it is discharged when it is not. You can try to recondition them:

  1. Charge them
  2. reset the charger and charge again
  3. put them in your device and drain them
  4. let them sit, drain them again
  5. recharge them
  6. drain them again
Do this a few times. If you don't notice an improvement, you may want to consider getting a new set of batteries - I would recommend lithium rechargeables.

I am wondering if anyone could help me please, i have bought some 2600 mAh AAA batteries for my video camera. I was wondering what kind of battery charger i would need to get to recharge these batteries?...


You dont need anything very advanced. 2600 is a nice high capacity for Ni-MH AA's and 1100 is really high capacity for AAA's. Here is a little panasonic charger that would do the job just fine.

Can I use only kodak batteries in my easyshare or is the energizer AA batteries ok? Will I ruin my camera if I install energizer?


Hi. You can use any make of 'normal' non-rechargeable alkaline AA batteries, or rechargeable NiMH AA batteries, but those will also need a battery charger.

Rechargeable batteries and a charger are more expensive to start with but are much more economical in the long run and especially if you use your camera fairly often.

The latest 'Hybrio' types hold their charge better when stored, but again they are a little more expensive but they can all be used in most other gadgets. The ordinary NiMh batteries do not hold the voltage quite as well as Hybrio, or even the older type of NiMh batteries but this does not often matter.

You will find that the capacity of rechargeable batteries varies from about 850 to 2100 'mah' (milli amp hours), so some will last longer than others but otherwise it does not matter which type you use. The latest 'Hybrio' types hold their charge better when stored, but again they are a little more expensive.

You will not damage your camera if you install energizer, so have fun with it!

How are u suppose to charge the vtech camera


I just read the "User's Manual". It recommends using 4 standard Alkaline AA size batteries. These are not re-chargeable. You can use Ni-Cad rechargeables, but I don't recommend it. They are of slightly lower voltage and this may cause you problems with the cameras operation. I recommend reading Page 3 of the "User's Manual".

Indeed you can!

I would recommend against using any of the older NiCAD batteries, however.

The newer (and - BY FAR - more efficient) standards is NiMH batteries. (Nickel Metal Hydride.)

I used to be an Energizer fan myself... But as I worked in electronics retail, I tried many different brands of batteries with our products. I actually hated Duracell because of the crap quality of their older product lines.

But eventually, I had to grudgingly admit that Duracell batteries were far superior to any other brand currently on the market. (No less expensive, however. Pretty much the same price.)

I use the 15-minute charger currently available from Duracell. It cost about $30, but it comes with 4 AA batteries with a rating of 2400 mAh.

This rating is basically what determines how much of a charge the battery can hold. The higher the rating, the longer the battery will last.

I also bought an extra pack of 4 AA's while I was at it. I bought all of this for my digital camera. (Canon S3 IS.) The batteries in the extra pack had a higher rating of 2650 mAh.

Even using the 2400 mAh AA's, my camera lasts for a few DAYS of continual use! I will admit that I rarely use the flash on my camera. But even with the flash, the batteries last several hours with continual use. The 2650 mAh batteries last even longer. (Yes. I have monitored and recorded usage vs endurance. I know. What a nerd I am, eh? :P )

Perhaps you've had bad luck with Duracell before, but so did I. I'm still not too fond of their alkaline batteries, either. Perhaps you should consider giving the Duracell rechargeables a try?

Click HERE to see the product I bought on Best Buy's site. (I bought mine at Walmart, however.) It is the 15-minute charger system. It works with both AA's and AAA's. (I had to really inspect the device after I bought it to see how it recharges AAA's though. But it works great.) It actually does charge in 15 minutes, too. Every time. It's so powerful in fact that it uses a fan to cool the batteries while it's charging. Now that's awesome. :)

Remember to make sure that you give the batteries a full charge before you use them. Also make sure that you don't charge the batteries again until they're completely drained. Otherwise you will significantly decrease the charge capacity of the battery. Duracell has an excellent guide on their site on how to lengthen the life of your batteries. (I just found it trying to look on their site for their own product...which I did not find. Good batteries, crappy web site. Bleh...)

Click HERE to see this spiffy guide. It actually contains excellent information.

Otherwise, you can try any other brand that you prefer. Energizer is still second best, followed by Rayovac. (This is from my own experiences, of course.)

Let me know what you think. :)

Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.

You will need to use 2100 mAh or 2500 mAh rechargeable batteries, as others are not powerful enough. To format the card, look in the menu system (or, indeed, in the manual) for the 'format' command.
