Each film cartridge contains a new battery. Every time you replace the film, you get a new battery.

Now the bad news...
As of June 2008, Polaroid no longer makes film. The last of what was produced is expiring in 10/2009.

The hopeful news...
Polaroid may be licensing other companies to manufacture film again (after 2009) and another group is hard at work trying to produce a similar film for these cameras (http:\\www.the-impossible-project.com). But don't expect any of this to be available any time soon.

I have an old Polaroid Impulse camera I want give to my grandson. I just want the flash to work. Where do I put the batteries? He's only 2, he doesn't need film! Debbie


The batteries for Polaroid 600 series cameras are located inside the film pack. Polaroid discontinued manufacture of their film in 2006, a company called The Impossible Project has began limited production of some of this type of film but it's selling for about $20/10 photos.

How to charge battery


The specs on this camera say that it has an external charger. Sometimes the usb cord will also charge the camera, but not all the time (depends on manufacturer). You will have to contact Polaroid, most likely, unless you can find a generic charger at Best Buy, etc.
Here is some information about the internal charger of the camera from redpowers.com:
The Lifespan of the Polaroid T737 Battery The life of a rechargeable battery for Polaroid T737 Digital Camera operating under normal conditions is generally between 500 to 800 charge-discharge cycles.
This translates into one and a half to three years of battery life for the average user. As the T737 battery begins to die, the user will notice a decline in the running time of the battery. When a battery that originally operated the device for two hours is only supplying the user with an hour's worth of use, it's time for a new Polaroid T737 replacement battery.
Is it Possible to Upgrade the Digital Camera Battery to a Newer Chemistry? NiCad, NiMH and Li-Ion are all fundamentally different from one another and cannot be substituted unless the Digital Camera has been pre-configured from the factory to accept more than one type of rechargeable battery technology. The difference between them stems from the fact that each type requires a different charging pattern to be properly recharged. Therefore, the Polaroid T737 Digital Camera internal charger must be properly configured to handle a given type of rechargeable battery.

They didn't explain how to configure, but it should be in the software menu of the camera.

I found batteries for this camera on google, but couldn't find a charger. Looks like if you have the right type of battery, the internal charger (through the usb port) will work.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

Polaroid 600 Camera, won't take a picture.


How old is the film in it?

Polaroid film packs have a battery included (a polarpulse powercell, I think).

If its an old film, the battery can go flat and as far as I'm aware there's no way to get power in to it.

I would take the cartridge out, (effectively not use the last shot), try a new cartridge to see if its working properly, then send the old cartridge back to Polaroid, if you think its faulty.

My i835 Polaroid digital camera eats batteries -- a new set of batteries lasts less than a minute.The camera is six months old, but has been used only one day.


Less than a minute? There is an obvious short that is draining the battery. Check the contacts in the camera to be sure there is no bridging contact between them causing the short circuit. Otherwise, e-mail a service tech at the Polaroid website with the problem.

Did you format the memory card before you tried using it.
Look thru the camera menu options and there should be an option to format the card.

The battery is included in the film pack. If you open the film door you will see the battery contacts in the lower side of the compartment. These line up with the battery holes (looks like foil in the holes) in the film pack. If you have an old film pack and no power the battery in the old pack may be dead.
