No, it does not charge via computer. However you can buy a replacement charger from ebay. I have one from digipower works fine. Just search digipower digital camera charger for canon. They are really cheap. Hope it helps.

Your manual should tell you this. I think most do not charge this way.

I have a cannon ixus 75 can i charge it from a laptop


Probably not, USB does not provide enough current to charge this type of battery, ergo Canon does not support USB charging. You can buy a third party charger and battery set for not very much and keep this camera working.

I have a Canon Ixus 95015 but I have mis-placed the charger. Will the lead that connects to my computer to view the pictures I've taken charge the battery? Or will any Canon Ixus charger fit my camera?...


You can find a new charger by searching for your camera's model number (add the word "charger") on Amazon, but it might be better to get one of the "universal" chargers instead. There are several makes of these, that will charge any of the small lithium batteries used in cameras and phones, so you won't have this problem again. And the universal chargers are often cheaper than the ones dedicated to a single battery type.

If your camera came with a charger for the battery, then it is unlikely that it will charge from the USB lead.

Hi, I have an IXUS860 IS, simple question, I do not have the charger, can I charge from USB? Thanks, Peter.


You have to have a charger to charge this camera's battery.

I found a charger for this camera by searching Amazon for "IXUS 860 IS charger". There are also "Universal" chargers available cheaply that can charge any phone or camera battery, lithium or NiMH.

No it won't charge through the USB port. Just buy a new generic charger for the NB-4L battery. They're very inexpensive. Here's some from Amazon:

No you can't. Recommend just buying another charger. Generic NB-4L chargers are relatively inexpensive ($6 to $10). So are the generic NB-4L batteries. Here's some chargers from Amazon:
