Please,what batteries do I use for my Nikon CoolpixL22. Thanks for your help


The L22 takes two standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or lithiums, or rechargeable NiMHs. Don't mix them, that is, use two of the same kind. If you use rechargeables, you must charge them separately; the camera is not a battery charger. You can use any brand, though I'd stick with the major brands.

Lithiums will last longer than alkalines but cost more. Rechargeable batteries cost more and won't hold a charge as long as alkalines, but can be reused.

Have a nikon D80, sometimes when turning on and taking a photo the battery drains to no charge. have to turn off and back on again and camera works ok. have tried on existing battery and on a brand new...


HI,

You can try updating the firmware if it is possible first.If this doesn't help then try removing the batteries off the camera and allow the camera to reset for an hour and then put them back.
If this doesn't help then You need to use 2500 or higher rechargeable batteries - as soon as you switch to this type of battery, it will work fine!

Your camera requires four AA size batteries.There are several factors that contribute to battery life:

NiMH: This is the best solution for enjoyment and cost savings. NiMH batteries typically last longer per charge than the average alkaline batteries. NiMH batteries are rechargeable batteries, so they can be used several times and thereby reduce the expense of continually purchasing new batteries. NiMH batteries are typically sold with a power adapter for charging. The life of these batteries can often be determined by the mAh rating, the higher the mAh rating on the battery, the longer that they will last. NiMH batteries do not have the memory effect associated with NiCd batteries, which means that these batteries can be recharged at any time and at your convenience (you do not have to wait for the batteries to completely drain between charges).

Lithium: Energizer has introduced a new series of Lithium batteries that provide optimum performance and long life for disposable AA size batteries. Laboratory studies shows that Lithium batteries last more than three times as long as standard Alkaline batteries. This means many more hours of fun and satisfaction with your digital camera. These lithium batteries are not rechargeable, they are long lasting.

Alkaline: Using the LCD display, downloading images, playback, zoom and flash all require some battery power to operate and may decrease the number of shots per set of batteries. Performance may also vary based on the Alkaline batteries selected. To significantly increase battery life, be sure to turn off the LCD when it is not in use. The LCD consumes the most amount of battery power. The benefit of being able to use alkaline batteries is that you can find then almost anywhere if needed.

Manganese: If you are using manganese batteries, the typical battery life will be about 2 - 5 shots. Then the camera will indicate that battery power is low and may shut-down. To avoid this experience, use either Alkaline or NiMH batteries.

Optimum Solution: Use a set of NiMH batteries for longer use and to reduce the expense of continually buying new batteries. It may also be a good idea to keep a spare set of NiMH batteries for other devices that require AA size batteries on a regular basis. Use AA Alkaline batteries when the NiMH batteries need to be recharged and you want to continue enjoying the use of your camera.

Goodluck,

Hi I have just put brand new batteries in my canon powershot A560 and having taken approx 4 or 5 photos it is now telling me that my batteries need changing. The low battery symbol is also on alot of the...


Make sure that you use the correct type of batteries some cameras prefer Alkaline or Zinc Carbon both at v1.5 some only can take 3 rechargeable Nickel Cadmium (Nicad) Cells at 1.3V (3x1.5v= 3.9V) or one Lithium Ion at 3.6V

Be careful if you put a 1.3V NiCad Rechargeable in a camera that was designed for 1.5 Alkaline it can damage the camera and you may experience similar problems to that you have now.

Always check that you are using the recommended batteries, this is why most manufactures supply there own Lithium Ion 3.6V rechargeable K type cells to avoid this type of problem.

Easyshare cx7430 wont power up changed batt,s still wont work


Hi! It sounds like a software issue. Although easyshares didn't have to load patches, it is possible this one may require it. As far as the batteries are concerned, this camera eats a lot of batteries. You should use re-chargeable lithium batteries. It doesn't really matter what brand you get, but be sure to get lithium rather than alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries are better suited for the burst discharge needs of a digital cam. Please make sure that your software is v.4.0. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

Which batteries are the best? Can I use alkaline, lithium or any others with this camera?


Lithium is actually one of the most widely used as it contains a higher charge. As for alkaline batteries they dont hold a high charge and may cause problems with your digital camera.

I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply. Thanks.

When you say you've tried every different kind of battery, did that include Lithium batts?

Lithiums are the only battery that ALL Kodak cameras seem to be happy to run on.

They have huge problems with alkaline batts, even brand new ones.

Hope this helps.
