Yes, no problems, the Ultra takes AAs. You are better off with rechargeables in the long run, since they will cost you less, but standard AAs will work.

SOURCE: AA Batteries in Flip Ultra HD

Anything that can use rechargeable AAs can use standard AAs, if they get hot I suggest changing the brand of batteries you are using.

Do I have to charge the Flip Video (an old one) by plugging in the USB to my computer even if it uses AA batteries?


You cannot charge standard AA Batteries, you need to buy new NiCd batteries, Ace hardware sells them and they are very cheap.

I just bought my 11 year old an ultra hd 2 hr flip video, we cannot even get it to power on, any suggestions?


You need to first Charge your camcorder battery pack.(mine had to charge over night) the first time.  Plug the little arm that extends from the camera into a USB 2 port on your computer and make sure your computer stays ON during the charging, otherwise the camcorder will not charge.

A red light will come on during charge and goes off when charged. If it does not come while plugged in try a different USB port.  Screen should light up temporarily and Red light showing charging on front of camcorder.

 

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE THE ABOVE, and are having the problem, pull the battery pack out and reseat it back in there again.  maybe connection not good.  OH, and I think mine had plastic covering the metal connections you may want to check that too -remove if so----- BUT the entire white plastic around the batteries STAYS IN PLACE do not remove that. 

 

If that still doesn't work I would try regular AA batteries in it if in fact you have The FLIP ULTRA HD it will take regular batteries too.    IF they work - then maybe you got a defective Rechargeable Battery pack and should contact Flip Video at   http://www.theflip.com/en-us/

I have a Flip mino hd. Battery is totally dead and I cannot get it to charge. I have used my computer USB and my friend has loaned me his Flip charger. NOTHING! Should I throw the camera away? I cannot...


Try a different USB port and don't use an extension cable with it either. Make sure the computer you are using is turned ON and stays on during the charging. not sure about the second half of your question, not knowing how to open? and change the battery? If you never opened it to begin with how did you get the rechargeable battery pack into it?? they don't come installed. battery was separate in the packaging on mine. anyhow, there is a little slide button at bottom of camcorder slide the opposite direction, then the whole front of the camcorder slides down and off of the camera. The battery pack goes in. the White plastic that covers both batteries Stays on them do not remove, but if there is a little plastic strip covering the connections remove that. I have the Ultra HD and it also takes regular AA batteries, and you may try that too to see if it will work your camera, if not, maybe something is wrong with the camera.
I am hoping you did not think the rechargeable batteries were already in the camcorder and they got thrown away with the packaging !!!! IF so, then use AA batteries instead. good luck. :)

Have a new Ultra HD Flip Video. How do I know when it is fully charged? Does the red light go off or what?


Hello there,

The Flip Ultra should have a rechargeable AA battery pack.

To verify it is charging, the battery icon will be flashing lightning bolt. The red light goes from red to green the moment it is fully charged. It takes six hours before it gets a full charge via the USB.

Please let me know if this gave you enough information. Thank you for using FixYa.

My flip camera won't charge what should i do?


I had this same issue. Slide the front cover off, replace the battery pack with 2 AA batteries. If the Flip powers on your problem is the battery pack and not the Flip itself. Battery packs sell for $29 at Best Buy or as low as $17 from amazon.com.

I have just bought the Flip ultra HD and at the first time i tried to turned it on after 37 sec it says "its too hot need to cool down" I then tried using it with the two AA batteries ...the same...


You can try charging with the cover off... or putting a fan on the unit. I was never able to get mine to charge the full 7 hours with or without the cover on or using the flip usb cable, wall unit or directly connected the computer. I went through two units and then just finally returned it to the retailer.

rep suggested i try the minoHD because of the internal battery. hmmmm... sorry I can't be of more help..

Flip ultra hd not charging


I had the same problem, but it seemed to be a bit more sporadic. I'd occasionally get the "Charging Paused - Check Battery Pack" error. The battery pack itself looks a bit strange, since the white plastic covers the bottom, right side and it seems that there is no possible way for the battery to make contact with the camera. However, I saw the following suggestion on another site (which the poster claimed came from Flip technical support), and this technique worked for me:

1) remove the battery pack from the camcorder
2) connect the camcorder to a powered USB port on your computer
3) when the "Connected" indicator comes on, insert the battery pack into the camcorder
4) safe eject your camcorder from your computer
5) reconnect your camcorder to your computer
6) the battery pack should now begin to charge within the camcorder
