Your solution? I am using brand new Energizer Industrial alkaline batteries. Should I be using something else? They seem to work fine in my wife's 675(?). Thanks

Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in most digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Walmart sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

I put new batteries into the camera but it continually tells me "low battery". What's wrong??? Do I need a specific brand or type of battery?


Yes, you are correct.


Digital camera need a high drain battery like NIMH or ALKALINE type, and don't a multi purpose ( standard battery).

My favorite battery is Energizer 2500 mAH ( recharged type).

Please check the battery you are using right now and replace it as guided above. If there is no internal problem on your digital camera, this recommend batteries will working just fine.

My camera is showing battery exhausted when i turn on the nikon camera i purchased a new battery and am still getting the same problem


You can try using Lithium batteries (Energizer Ultimate Lithium) instead of an alkaline battery. If you are using brand new, high-power batteries and are still getting this message, there may be a short or some defect within the camera itself that is causing the batteries to drain unnecessarily fast.

I've been using Olympus 550 UZ camera for over a year now. I am facing problem with the life of battery though. Tried Energizer and Duracel batteries. 10-15photos and the battery is drained down. Is there...


Switch from alkaline batteries to pre-charged Nickel Metal-hydride (NiMH).
My best experience is with these batteries:
#1. RayoVac (pre-charged)
#2. Kodak (pre-charged)
#3 Energizer (rechargeable)

Find them at WalMart or online

"pre-charged" are new technology rechargeable batteries. They are GREAT! They outlast alkaline at least 15 times per charge.

Batteries die with 5 minutes of using.


Hi
Digital camera's eat batteries mainly due to flash being used all the time.
If you don't need to use the flash don't, it will last longer.
The best batteries i found to use with my camera are Duracell Alkaline.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Canon PowerShot A630 power problem: NiMH batteries no longer work


I dont agree, I have tried several different batterie types and the batteries are draining almost instantly with the camera and they are not actually being drained. I think the camera itself is at the end of its life...as I have used rechargeable batteries for the last few years and now they wont even show as being charged on the camera. It stinks Im in your same spot now...no batteries are lasting even the brand new lithium ones...it has nothing to do with the battery "juice" but something with the canon supply power not recognizing/recieving the juice. Im not a canon expert, but I think the problem is more than the battery here Steve and im confused at the solution as well.

Displays "low battery" always


I had exactly this problem and found the solution - I was using the wrong type of batteries.

You might be doing the same so what you need to do is check to see what mAh the batteries you're using. I was using Energizer rechargables with 1300mAh when the camera stopped working and switched to 2500mAh rechargables (on the advice of a friend) as a last desperate attempt to get it to work and it solved my problem. I got 2500mAh Energizer rechargables and would advise the same but you should go for batteries with at least 2100mAh.

I hope this helps some people :)

Drained Batteries


I use professional $70k cameras for work and it's the same type of thing. If you're not using it, take the batteries out. With my A75 I have some energizer 2200mpa rechargeable AA's and the seem to last about a month or so. If I happen to be "cranking" through pictures though (upwards of 300-500) in one sitting, it will suck them dry. The rechargeable batteries last longer than the Alkalines. I was heistant with the rechargeables but for $20 I picked up a 15 minute charger and the 2200mpa AA's, now I recommend them to everyone with a digital camera. Digital cameras eat Alkaline batteries in a hurry.
