Question about Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera
Is this camera having battery problems? I have had mine for several years with no problems, and good battery life. When I turned it on last week it said battery exhaused. I put in new batteries, took maybe 10-15 shots, and then when on vacation. I took around 15-20 more shots and all of a sudden I got the same battery exhausted message. I just tested the batteries and they are still good.
There are different Mah ratings on rechargeable batteries. Check your owner's manual and see what amperage rating the battery should have. Then check the amp rating of your replacement battery.
I've found that cheaper batteries are available and they're cheap for a good reason...they don't work well.
I would suggest going with Nikon batteries if you haven't done so already...
I think you'll find a great difference in service life.

This could be corrosion, or oxidation on the battery terminals inside the computer. You will have to clean them with a qtip and alcohol, or pencil eraser, or whatever you can reach them with. When the terminals get slightly corroded, they draw more current from the battery, shortening it's life, even if they're new. Try to clean the terminals as well as you can, and hopefully it will help. Otherwise, the unit will require service. Make sure you get an estimate before having it fixed, though, since the cost of repair can easily exceed the cost of a new camera on sale. Good luck, hope this helps.
