We are using Energizer Rechargable batteries, but lately if we leave the batteries in they will die with in a couple of days. I have tried a different set of batteries. Used a set of non-rechargables and still the same thing. Any ideas where I should start looking for a fix??? Thank you, Tim
HEY CHEF TIM sorry to miss you on hells kitchen ha ha sorry to say that these cam are battery eaters (that's wy i don't own one)
rechargable battery are never any good they have whats nown as (battery memory) meanning that if you don't run it down to nothing

Digital cameras often use batteries quite quickly especially with heavy usage. If you are using standard all purpose batteries you may consider using batteries which last longer in electronics that draw a lot of power such as Duracell PowerPix or Energizer Lithium. Alternatively you may consider investing in rechargable batteries and keeping a spare set in your camera bag.
The Batteries that Motorola uses will die after a while mainly because people leave them on the charger all of the time. But there is a way to refresh them. You let the battery die completely, then you charge it up for about 12 hours. Then you let the battery die completely. Do this a couple of times and the batteries will last long. Also, Motorola use to make a battery refresher (or did when I worked there.) It will charge and drain the battery automatically. It will even give you a fault if the battery is completely dead. For the HT1000 (for example) it would be the WPPN4065BR. For future reference, don't constantly charge a battery. Only have it on the charger when the battery is actually dead or very low. This will increase battery life.
I would recommend you try Energizer Lithium or Duracell M3 batteries.
This camera is noted for its high drain of "ordinary alkaline" batteries (see toysr'us customer comment below).
Also note that the memory is a constant charge flash memory - meaning no battery current = no pics (you lose the lot).
Another happy customer - NOT ..... She used it for three pictures, set it down, the auto-shutoff enabled (which is great because the batteries aren't rechargable) and the darn thing wouldn't come back on. We switched out the batteries (tried them in a flashlight and they were drained!) and it powered on, however her pictures were gone. After reading the troubleshooting section of the manual, we discovered the flash memory requires a constant charge, so if the batteries die (which they did again about 10 minutes later) all the pics are lost. Come on! How reasonable is it to have to sync the camera with the computer and save pictures every ten minutes?!
Hi Digital camera's eat batteries mainly due to flash being used all the time. If you don't need to use the flash don't, it will last longer. The best batteries i found to use with my camera are Duracell Alkaline.
because your probably not using energizer lithium batteries.everything else is a waste of money,and recharable are,nt any good,dont use them,also take batteries out when not in use,and keep in a cool place not too hot.good luck .hope i helped
Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.
