Camera Battery - Need a spare one?

I have a ViviCam 7388s, which comes with it's own re-chargeable battery and battery recharger. It doesn't take AA or AAA's. It is an ElementTech 17v WGL-0101. I've tried to find a battery for the camera to keep as a spare and I can't find it at any store (Henry's Camera, Future Shop, The Source, Wal-Mart, Zellers, etc.). Where can I find this battery or is there a battery that is comparable that I can use?

I just got a ViviCam T027, what kind of batteries do i need??


for some reason they take either AA OR AAA batteries. remove the batteries and it will say on the side what type. AAA batteries or small. AA are the larger "penlight" batteries. i would suggest/recommend that you purchase a set of rechargable batteries for the camera. 600ma minimum but higher ma would be best. most dept stores such as walmart etc will have charger + battery combination packs you can buy. as a side note buying dollar store batterys etc will be a waste of money as i've tried it. you might get one or two pictures from a set of batteries. your other choice is a good set of alkaline batteries. but rechargable batteries are your best option.

I have a vivicam and it didn't come with a chager this is my frist vivicam ever what do i have to do to chager it?


I sense that your camera is not actually the DVR-390h in the title. That is an older multi-media device that came with a lithium battery and a charger.

If you bought your camera new and got no charger with it, it may be that your camera uses ordinary AA batteries, which can be rechargeable or just disposable Alkaline cells. You would have got a set of alkaline AAs with the camera, and when these expire, you just put in a fresh set, that you can buy anywhere. DON'T use cheap zinc or "long life" AAs, though. They are not up to the task, and can leak and corrode your camera.

If you want to, you can buy a set (or two sets, to have spares) of rechargeable AA cells. Get high capacity NiMH type, preferably 2300mAH or 2700mAH rated ones. You can often buy these with a charger relatively cheaply. These batteries can last longer, per charge, than alkalines, and will work out cheaper in the long run.

How do you charge the vivicam5018 digital camera?


You don't. The 5018 uses two AA batteries, either disposable or rechargeable. If you use rechargeable batteries, you have to recharge them using a battery charger. The camera does not contain any battery charging circuitry.

Can I buy a rechargable battery pack for my vivicam 5024 or do I have to use standard AA battery's?


You can use rechargeable AAA batteries, but you'll have to charge them outside the camera. You should be able to buy rechargeable AAAs and a charger at just about any department or electronics store.

How do you recharge the lithium Ion battery?


You don't say what the battery model is. Is it a AA, AAA or is it a specific battery for the camera. Some video camera batteries are chargeable while in the camera with the use of an appropriate mains lead plugged into the camera. With other cameras you need to remove the battery and insert it in an appropriate charger for the type of battery.

Vivitar vivicam 7388s lens won't go back into


Hi Dear,

This issue is not with the battery. This is due to the misalignment of the camera lens. This is a delicate hardware problem. Hence,i would suggest you to take it to some professional or your authorized service center and get it repaired there only. Trying to repair it on your own might make the situation worse and would cost a lot money.

If you need more information on this. Please do write to use.

Have a nice day.

Kodak Z812 shuts off automatically


It is a high-powered camera, also knows as a GREAT camera. Use CRV-3 lithium duracell batteries. I have the same camera and the same "problem", but when I use that battery it lasts forever.

Technical problem


I purchased a *ist DS used a couple of weeks ago, and it turns out to have similar problems. This camera seems very fussy about batteries. I am using rechargeable NiMh AAs. After about 30-40 exposures, the camera shows battery depleted. If I turn the camera off, then back on, it will show a charge - sometimes a full charge and will work for another 20 or so exposures. It can keep this up for a couple of days.

I read an explanation in one of the photo blogs (can't remember which) that suggested this was caused by one or two incompletely charged batteries in set of 4. If one is discharged the current from the others supposedly will flow to it, giving fluctuating power readings to the power management curcuit. This sounded plausible enough that I purchased a new charger yesterday which monitors the charge on each battery. Too early to tell whether this solved the problem or not. The other option is to switch to disposable batteries.

How can I increase battery life?


Transferring images from the camera to the computer requires a lot of battery power. It is recommended to use the AC adapter when transferring pictures to conserve battery life. If not using the AC adapter, make sure your batteries are fully charged and use the highest possible serial speed when connecting the camera to the computer. After transferring your images remember to shut off the camera, otherwise the camera will remain "awake" and will continue to wear down the batteries. The LCD display also uses much battery power and should be used sparingly when trying to conserve power usage. Battery life can be improved by using AA sized lithium batteries, rechargeable AA Ni-Cad batteries, or rechargeable AA Ni-MH batteries instead of AA sized alkaline batteries.
