Re: Is the battery that comes with the camera ...
Yes, the battery that comes with the C-7000 can be recharged. This battery is the Olympus LI-12B Lithium Ion battery and it can be recharged using the LI-10C battery charger. Both the battery and charger are included with the camera.

Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh
batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.
NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will
only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls
below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only
result in about 30-40 pictures at most.
This camera requires a
constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this
!!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New
alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short
period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they
simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power
But there is a really great solution to the
problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits
right into this camera. You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per
charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very
long period of time and will allow the camera to function the way
Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find
rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at
a very reasonable cost.
You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.
I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.
For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
Lithium Ion batteries prefer a partial rather than a full discharge. Repeated full discharging robs the battery of its capacity (useful life), the Lithium Ion battery prefers shallow over repetitive deep discharge cycles.
Besides cycling, the performance of the Li-ion is also affected by aging. Capacity loss through aging is independent of use however the capacity is affected by both aging and usage.
Battery wear-down on lithium-based batteries is caused by two activities: actual usage or cycling and aging. The wear-down affects by usage and aging apply to all batteries but this is more pronounced on lithium-based systems. The Li-ion batteries prefer a shallow discharge. Partial discharges produce less wear than a full discharge and the capacity loss per cycle is reduced.
Simple Guidelines to extend useful life of the battery
Charge the Li-ion often, except before a long storage. Avoid repeated deep discharges.
Keep the Li-ion battery cool. Prevent storage in a hot car. Never freeze a battery.
The Olympus LI-12B (supplied) or LI-10B lithium ion battery can be used with this camera. Do not use any other type of battery. The battery is not fully charged when the camera is purchased. Charge the battery using the supplied cradle before using the camera.
