Question about Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I received a Canon PowerShot A1100 IS as a Christmas present in 2009/10. Right from the start, it seemed to use batteries like they were going out of style. So, I bought good quality batteries and removed them between photo-taking sessions. Recently, while on a 2-week vacation, I went through 20 AA batteries (Energizer and Duracel)! Any advice or suggestions to rectify this inconvenient and highly wasteful problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Leta

In my experience you'd better choose high capacity Li-ion AA batteries, and high capacity rechargeable batteries will be much better.

Your battery leaked probably alkaline batteries left in the camera too long. You can dissolve the leak with water and clean up the camera. Try not to wet the rest of the camera if you can.

Hi, I just bought Canon PowerShot A1100 IS camera. I am using rechargable battaries of GP 1.2V 2700mhz which only lasts for not more that half an hour. what should I do?

Those batteries are Ni-cads or the like, they ONLY have 1.2 Volts, this camera should ONLY be used with "Normal"? batteries, of 1.5 Volts. It is all a function of VA/T Volts x Amps, over Time, and a 1.2 @ 2.7Amps = 3.24VA, now, even at same current 1.5 @ 2.7 Amps = 4.05.VA You see, the other first one does not have enough energy to last. It is that simple.
