The voltage of NIMH accu's is a standard resized to 1.2 V per cell in comparisson a normal aa size alkeline delivers 1.5 v per cell this is the maximum voltage , the minimum voltage depends on how the batteries a draint , some camera's drain them down to 0 Volt others to 0.500 V = 500Mv (milivolt)
be aware that some camera's do not work with batteries / accu's if they don't have a protection sheet around the pile

Battery life-I put new batteries in and it lasted less than 30 minutes-maybe 20 pics before the camera stated replace batteries. Is there a reset-


If you are using alkaline batteries, you should switch to rechargeable NiMH batteries. I highly recommend the Sanyo Eneloop products. You should be able to get 300 to 400 shots before you need to recharge. Get two sets of four AA Eneloop batteries. Don't mix them. They hold their charge for a year and can be recharged a thousand times.

When I put in new batteries it keeps telling me to replace batteries. I notice on line that this is a problem however I do not seem to see the answer anywhere. Can you help? .......Thank you Stella Gordon


Do not use Alkaline AA. Their voltage drop a lot under load.
Try the best: Hybrid type like Sanyo Eneloop. Also get a decent charger,the cheapee "Fast Charge" charger just shorten battery life pretty fast.
Hope this help

I just purchase the Canon Power shot SX 130. Batteries are new and after a few days the camera batery light is flashing and I can't take any pictures the camera shot down. Please help.


Buy a proper NiMH rechargeable batteries (Sanyo Eneloop for example). Modern cameras will drain alkaline batteries in the matter of hours, not days.

How do I charge my vetch camera


I dont believe they are rechargable. There are two phillips screws on the bottom of camera, remove these and you will find 4 aa batteries that need to be changed. Hope this helps

Shows low battery, even after installing new batteries. will not work.


The best batteries are rechargeable NiMh batteries of the ENELOOP (Sanyo) type.
These batteries have a very, very low discharge. Some other brands have such types too.

I have a Canon Powershot A590. The battery life is HORRIBLE! Is this a Camera problem? They do not last long at All.


Try getting some quality rechargable NiMH batteries and see if they last longer for you. The ones that I use in my A590 are rated at 2500 mah and last quite a while so far. I wouldn't recommend batteries rated at less than 2000 mah for this camera.

Best regards,
Bob

Shows low battery after putting in new batteries


Your best solution is to use Sanyo Eneloop batteries because of their higher voltage over the discharge curve compared to regular NiMH batteries. See http://www.epinions.com/content_309637189252.
I have gotten a full week of use with hundred of pictures on one charge using a Canon A540 and a set of Eneloops. The only problem is they are hard to find, but you can get them on Amazon.com.

How many pictures can you take with alkaline batteries?
The initial voltage of NI-MH is low and when it discharges, the voltage drop lower to a point where it is not high enough for the electric circuits of the camera. Alkaline batteries hold their voltage better.
Try SANYO eneloop recharchable batteries. They don't drop their voltage.

Battery low all the time


Try Eneloop batteries from Sanyo. They have the higher voltage needed. AND that voltage doesn't sag under the initial startup load.
