Yes. You can use either rechargeable (NiMH) batteries or disposable (alkaline and lithium) batteries.

I have a Canon Power Shot A470. I have replaced the batteries many times, always with brand new ones, and it still keeps telling me to change the batteries. What is the problem with it? How do I fix it?


Yes, but what batteries have you been changing? If the AA's, those aren't the clock battery. Open the battery door, and notice the tiny door inside labeled "CR1220". Pry that door open with your fingernail, and take the enclosed CR1220 battery down to your local drugstore to purchase a replacement clock battery. Drugstores seem to be cheaper for this battery (~$3) than retail outlets like W-Mart (~$7).

Are the batteries fo Powershot A85 rechargeable


This camera takes ordinary AA batteries. You can use alkaline ones, which are mostly not rechargeable, or you can use a set of AA size NiMH rechargeable ones, which will last longer per charge than a set of alkalines. You will need a separate charger for the batteries, they won't charge in the camera. You can buy a charger complete with a set of batteries cheaply online or in shops. Get ones marked 2300 mAH or 2700 mAH if you can- they will last longer than ones with lower ratings.

Battery low indicator on Canon Powershot A470 camera is always on


You're using alkaline batteries. No matter how much you pay for alkaline type batteries, they just cannot cope with the amount of power that a digital camera needs - especially an older model. Use a type called lithium AA, energiser make a very good version. You can usually buy them in camera shops, and they can be a little pricier, but the camera will take between 300-500 photos per set, so worth it. If thats not possible I would suggest using rechargable batteries with a charger - the higher the number the stronger the battery. 2100mAh to 2900mAh should be okay for a camera, and the best type is niMH (not niCD). Good luck.

One of four rechargable AA batteries have burst...


The ideal way to get it out would be to make a small hole on the battery and drain out the powder inside. A small screw driver should help you do this. You can then compress the AA container by pushing the edges towards the center and take it out.

Just bought a second hand Canon Powershot SX100 IS.


Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Canon Powershot A470 - asks to 'change battery' every time it is turned on, then turns off immediately. This is so even when new, fully charged batteries (different brands, rechargeable, non-rechargeable)...


This happened with my Canon Powershot A470. I sent it back to he manufacturer and they said I was using the wrong batteries. Even though the camera is supplied with two alkaline batteries, they recommend using AA NimH rechargable batteries.

The Canon Powersht A470 has a small button battery


This is the date battery. Ir remembers the date and time when you remove the AA batteries so you don't have to reset the date/time each time you replace the main batteries. Check page 159 in the manual (or somewhere around there) for information. The battery type is CR1220 (a fairly standard type), and should be available at electronic stores.

Canon A470 The date and time menu keeps popping up every time I switch on the camera despite setting the date and time.


There is another battery next the the AA battery under a little cover marked CR1220. That is the battery size. If that battery is dead, or has never been installed then every time you change the AA batteries the camera will forget the time and date. Try to get one from a specialty store that turns over its inventory quickly and you may find that you will only change this battery every 2 or 3 years.
