Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Alternative Charging Methods???

I have recently purchased the XTi from canon and I am wondering if there are any alternative charging methods to charge the removable battery? I used own the powershot G3, which had a removable battery pack also, so you could either remove the battery and use a wall outlet, or use the cable that came with it and charge the battery without removing it from the camera. Does the XTi have this capability/jack or am I out of luck??
thank
p3ter

Your out of luck. This method of charging is considered (nowadays) unprofessional. Thats why you rarely see manufactures such as Canon/Sony/Nikon (the big 3) use this - and company's like Kodak will. Yes, it is convenient, BUT, battery chargers are prone to go out. They work very hard, and get very hot, adding stress to other components. There is no such thing as a bullet proof charger. Many (quality) manufactures know this and avoid this added hassle. See, if the charger goes out then it's likely to disable the rest of the camera and it's not worth the risk.

I have a Canon Rebel XTI and it was working fine until one day it just decided not to turn back on. Tried charging both batteries multiple times and upon putting them in, it still will not turn on. Am I...


Sorry to hear about this. I have a similar camera and have been racking my brain about this...

My only thought...are you using the same battery charger? Perhaps the battery charger is to blame. You may be out of battery on both batteries. When you install the battery, does ANYTHING happen? Does it say, LOW Battery or CHANGE the battery? Or is it totally black? If nothing happens at all, you should probably contact Canon directly. Or purchase a new charger and see if that fixes the problem.

I assume you mean one of the pins inside the camera body itself? This is quite a common problem and I believe it will have to be dealt with by a Canon Repair Centre. However it is not the end of the camera and is worth having done although I cannot say what the are charging at this time.

I have been use sony cycle Energy Rechargable batteries AA 2000mAh. They are properly charging. But now I'am purchased another sony cycle Energy Reechargable batteries AA 3000mAh. But they are no charging...


It's likely your charger. You probably own a "fast charger" but it's also probably designed for your lower mAh power batteries. The charger does not understand the power difference of your newer high-capacity battery, thus it is automatically stopping the charge before completion sensing something is wrong. You'll need to either purchase a newer charger, clearly stated capable of charging 3000mAh batteries. An alternative is to use an older "trickle" charger (one of those that charges at very low power slowly overnight). These don't automatically turn off when the battery reaches full charge, thus will charge your battery.
