Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
Hello, I've always used chargeable batteries, but lately, immediately after they've been charged, the 'change batteries' message pops up on my A85 Power Shot camera. I tried using fresh Duracell batteries, and the message popped up after only a few days (camera use no higher than usual). Can you tell me how long, generally, I should get out of my camera with fresh batteries (maybe my chargeable batteries are done?), or if this is indeed a 'trouble-shooting' problem that you can help solve. Thanks! Lianne
Chargeable batteries usually last for a year or two. Alkaline batteries should only be expected to last for around a dozen shots (as such, NEVER rely on alkaline batteries). Recommend buying another set of NiMH rechargeables. Make sure you get 2500 mah or better power rating (look on the package).
