Try getting some quality rechargable NiMH batteries and see if they last longer for you. The ones that I use in my A590 are rated at 2500 mah and last quite a while so far. I wouldn't recommend batteries rated at less than 2000 mah for this camera.

Best regards,
Bob

I had the same problem with my A590. I was using regular NiMH, all the way up to 2500 mah and still not getting many pics per charge; always dead at the wrong time. I switched to Eneloop batteries by Sanyo and I have to say they are incredible. Even though these ready-to-use batteries are rated at minimum 1900 mah, they work great and best of all last forever. I can take a LOT of pics before they run down. Very happy with the Eneloop with my A590.

Hmmm. With this, I suggest looking through your settings and trying to find a "power saver" setting. If that doesn't work, you could report the problem to the company. They should switch out cameras if you still have your warranty.

Canon a590 always low battery with new battey


Don't use regular alkaline batteries (even though you can...) It's a pain to splurge for the more expensive lithium or photo-specific batteries, but they do last. I take A LOT of pictures with my A590, and can usually get several hundred shots out of a set of good batteries. Try Energizer's web site for a coupon, sometimes they have them available.

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

Canon A590 battery problem, low life, won't work with good batts


I had this problemt too. I cleaned the contacts with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab, then replaced the batteries with Duracell (not the cheaper Sunbeams I had been using). This worked like a charm.

Batteries do not last long. even with recharge batteries


You must take a lot of flash shots. Try using Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries. They cost more but they last up to eight times longer. They're 1/3 lighter and they don't discharge while they're just sitting there like other batteries do.
