The ideal way to get it out would be to make a small hole on the battery and drain out the powder inside. A small screw driver should help you do this. You can then compress the AA container by pushing the edges towards the center and take it out.

How to charge camera


You don't. The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries, either disposable or rechargeable. If you use rechargeable batteries, you must charge them outside the camera using a standard battery charger. Rechargeable batteries and battery chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Not sure how to charge the vtech kidizoom camera


The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries. The manual recommends disposable alkaline batteries. If you wish to use rechargeable batteries, they must be charged in a separate battery charger; the camera does not include charging circuitry.

You should be able to find rechargeable batteries and battery chargers at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Regular AA batteries have a very short life in camera


Regular Alkaline AA's don't last very long you are so right and it's a wonder because they actually pack more power but just don't have the staying power in I'll say most digital point and shoot cameras. I can only suggest that you purchase a four pack of rechargeable batteries and a charger, you will find way more then double the life or use before needing to recharge the batteries.
Again I can only suggest when you are buying rechargeable batteries for your camera look for a new type that will say on the package (no doubt in fine print) that the batteries will hold up to 80% of their power for one year. That is the key to having batteries with power when you want or need the camera. The batteries are only 2000mAh NI-MH but will hold their own up against the 2700mAh I use in some of my other equipment. I first started to use this "new" type of long lasting battery about two years ago first produced under the "Sony" label and have since seen them under no-name labels at the department store check out for a pretty cheap price in comparison but they were batteries only not the charger. So the first hurt is getting four batteries with a charger and you will be good to go. The key think here is to see first if it says on the package ready to use and another holds up to 80% of it's power for one year I use a lot of battery power with remote photography sets and I'll eventually switch my batteries over to this type.
Cheers I know this will help your situation have a great day

What type of battery is the best and recommended for Casio QV-R40


The Camera would work with 4 AA batteries of almost any type. However a high capacity rechargeable battery would be more economical in the long run and you need a charger too. NiMh batteries with capacities of between 1200mah and 2900mah would be fine. The Hybrio type comes ready-charged and retains its charge best on the shelf. Therefore I would recommend e.g.
Four, Uniross Hybrio AA 2100mah rechargeable batteries

Canon PowerShot A85


I decided to send you this from the Canon website to see if this helps: 
Issue: What are the specifications for batteries that I can use in my camera?
Solution: Recommended AA batteries for your camera.

What types of AA batteries can I use? Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries For the best results, we recommend using Canon rechargeable (NiMH) batteries. Rechargeable batteries provide the best performance and are the most economical choice.
battery_charger_kit_cbk4_300.jpgThe Canon Battery & Charger Kit includes a battery charger and four rechargeable AA-size NiMH (nickel metal hydride) batteries. The battery kit can be purchase from the Canon eStore.
AA alkaline batteries AA alkaline batteries such as those from Energizer or Duracell will provide the best performance for non-rechargeable batteries.
  • ALL AA-based PowerShot digital cameras (including A Series and S5 IS / SX100 IS-type):"Never use manganese (non-alkaline) batteries."
  • Since the performance of alkaline batteries may differ according to brand, the operating time of the batteries you purchase may not be as long as the batteries that came with the camera.
Precautions:
  • Camera operating time may shorten at low temperatures when alkaline batteries are used. Also due to their specifications, alkaline batteries may expire faster than NiMH batteries. If you are using the camera in cold areas or for a long time, we recommend using Canon AA-size NiMH Battery Kit (a four piece set).
  • While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries, performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
  • Never mix unused and partially used batteries. Always load two or four (depending on camera model) fresh (or fully recharged) batteries at the same time.
  • Be careful to load the batteries with their positive (+) and negative (-) ends in the right direction.
  • Never mix batteries of different types or from different manufacturers. All batteries should be identical.
  • Before inserting the batteries, wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth. Oil from ones skin or other dirt may cause a considerable reduction in the number of recordable images or reduced usage time.
  • Battery performance deteriorates at low temperatures (especially with alkaline batteries). If you are using the camera in cold areas and batteries are running down faster than they should, you may be able to restore performance by placing batteries in an inner pocket to warm them up prior to use. But be careful that you don't put the batteries into a pocket together with a metal key chain or other metallic objects, as these objects may cause batteries to short-circuit.
  • If you do not plan to use the camera for a long time, remove the batteries from the camera and store them in a safe place. Batteries may leak and damage the camera if left installed during prolonged periods of non-use.
WARNING
Never use damaged batteries or batteries whose outer seal is completely or partially missing or peeled off, as there is risk that such batteries may leak, overheat, or burst. Always check the seals on store-bought batteries before loading them, as some batteries may come with defective seals. Do not use batteries with defective seals.
