Hi,

It depends on the Model of the camera. Few camera's do have that function and few don't.


However, most models do not have this feature as this would require a built in charge circuit, which would complicate the design and definitely increase the size of the camera. Even large cameras don't (usually) have built in charging circuits.

The thing to remember is that in order to charge the battery you must have the same voltage as the original charger. USB ports only supply 5volts... typically at 500mah or less. If your camera does not allow for the battery to be charged in the camera then it won't matter because you will need an external charger.

Be careful about he type of external charger you buy because lithium batteries are dangerous if charged incorrectly.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My dcr sr 80 is not charging


Depending on your camera, the battery may be able to be charged on the camera or by using a separate battery charger. Refer to the section below that relates to the charging method you are using.

Charging while the battery is attached to the camera:

  1. Make sure the battery is firmly attached and the AC adapter is securely connected.
  2. If your camera can charge the battery with a USB connection, use the built-in USB cable to connect it to the computer. If you use a USB charger instead of the computer, check the compatibility of the USB charger.
  3. Turn off the camera. The battery is does not charge if the camera is turned on.

Charging using the battery charger:

  1. If the CHARGE lamp does not light or blinks when charging, the terminals may be dirty. Wipe the dust away with a dry cloth and charge the battery again.
  2. Make sure the metal contacts on the battery are free of corrosion.

I Have Misplaced My Charger And I Am Wondering If There Is Any Other Way To Charge It Like Maybe In The Computer?


Yes, you can charge the battery by connecting the camera to a powered USB port. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries, and you want to connect it directly, not through a hub. Alternatively you can use a USB charger that plugs into a wall outlet; such devices are available for cell phones.

Hi I have the vivitar vivicam 8025 dont have my manual want to know how to charge my battery


First off, you can download a PDF version of the manual from the manufacturer at: http://www.vivitar.com/files_products/13/VC8025%20User%20Manual.pdf
If you don't have a PDF viewer, you can download one from: http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/ (just click download under the free version)
For your convenience I've pasted the relevant information about charging the batteries from the above manual:
Please charge the battery as below 2 methods: A. Charge with USB cable Insert the lithium battery into your camera correctly, and connect your camera to computer with USB cable. The red LED of camera will be light on indicating that your camera is in charging status, the LED willbe off when charge full.
B. Charge with supplied charger Your camera is supplied a compatible charger for you, you are only required to put the battery into charger and charge the lithium battery directly from electrical outlet

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

How do i charge my camera so that i can explore


You can charge the battery in two ways.

Use the supplied battery charger. Remove the battery from the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a power outlet.

Connect the camera via a USB cord to a powered USB outlet. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge the battery. You might want to consider a cell phone charger that plugs into a power outlet.

My battery charger for Casio EX-Z1080 isn't working anymore. I'm wondering if I could use the computer to charge its battery or is there any other alternative? Please, I badly need your answers. Thanks so...


You can use your computer USB post but it has to be USB 2.0 compatible or else it wont charge. you can also purchase a usb wall plug because most standard USB devices usually have an output of 5v. This is a lot better since you wont have to walk around with a computer or laptop to charge your camera, lol Radio Shack around ten bucks.

You can charge the battery using the USB cable. The camera has a built-in recgargeable Li-ion battery, but the AC charger is "optional" ... go figure...
Nice camera, btw...

I'm not aware of any indicator light on the camera. The optional external charger has a red lighht that turns amber, then green.

Need battery to charge


WELL, AFTER MUCH CHECKING I COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING THAT MENTIONED CHARGING THE BATTERY THROUGH THE USB CABLE, SO I HAVE TO ASSUME THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE. MAYBE YOU HAVE HAD LUCK DOING IT, BUT FUJI DOESN'T SAY ANYWHERE THAT IT CAN BE DO. I DO HAVE A HOT LINK I WILL GIVE YOU THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE FUJI ONLINE WEBSTORE WHERE YOU CAN FIND A REPLACEMENT CHARGER. I HOPE THIS HAS BEEN HELPFUL. IF SO, PLEASE RATE, THANKS!
