Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

Which AA battery shall I buy for my digital camera? 1500? 1000? 2500?


Although you could use these, do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights. The lower capacities suggest NiCd batterie. Also don't use these.
A set of new NiMH batteries, from 2000 to 2600 mAh with a good charger, will be fine.
Two things.
There are very fast chargers around. Don't invest in them. I payed 80 euro for a quick charger. Could charge 2700 mAh batteries in 15 minutes. The charger killed all my NiMH batteries I had (more than 40) It took me till the fifth or so died, before I realised it could be the charger. Since I stopped all my batteries one by one died and I had to replace them all
I now have some "fast" chargers that take 2 to 3 hours and the new batteries Can handle that.
Better buy a slower charger and some good batteries, than the other way around.
Second. Test the 2600 mAh batteries, if they fit.
To put more capacity in the "same" AA battery some brands made them slightly thicker. So it could be you can't get the largest ones in your camera.

Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera or charging the flash. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Kodak Easyshare CX7530 won't stay powered on


SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.

S40 Battery problem


Alkaline batteries are not capable of outputting the level of power required for your camera to operate. Your daughter's camera may have lower requirements and be able to function properly using alkaline batteries. Your standard alkaline battery outputs about 700 milliamps of power when they are brand new. A rechargeable NiMH battery can range from 1200 to 2700 or even 3200 milliamps max power output depending on the quality of the battery. Most compact digital cameras that accept AA style batteries are designed for these high-output rechargeables and will not function for very long even on fresh Alkaline batteries.
