Are you keeping the large LCD screen on all the time? If so, that will dramatically reduce battery life. Same goes for flash use (although for 8 shots shouldn't be a factor) and constant stabilization. Also, by low battery do you mean that the camera is turning itself off and can't be turned back on? If just the icon is showing low battery life, it could be that the sensor wrong. I have an MP3 player that will say it has zero battery power, but will really play for another two hours. You should be able to take many more than 8 shots with one battery. I've taken 500 photos over a period of nine days on one battery with my FZ10. Viewfinder only, stabilization only when shooting, no flash use.

In my experience you need to conserve the battery power, i.e. only turn it on when you are ready to shoot. In 5 days I shot 500 pictures in Rocky Mountain National Park this August, 1500 pictures in the UK and Paris on a two week vacation early this year. I took my shots and turned it off when there wasn't a shot to be made. I was carrying a spare battery and also charged the battery using a power convertor in my car after the days hikes where over.

How to extend battery time for i phone?

Ensure any unneeded apps are stopped and not running in the background. Some apps such as facebook / twitter / etc may need to be completely uninstalled or logged out to keep them from running.
Turn down the screen brightness, Generally turning the screens brightness down till it can still be easily seen but not overly bright can increase cell phone battery by up to 20%
Shut off wifi / bluetooth / gps when not required. Disable Wifi / bluetooth, and GPS will also increase your phones battery time.

Ensure a full charge, most devices (iphones included) usually require a minimum of 8 solid hours to charge, even when they say full, they are not actually "FULL". Make sure your device gets at least 8 hours of charge time before use, and don't allow the battery to drain all the way before the next charge.

How to reset baterry saver on 2006 cadillac cts?

Disconnect the battery and clean both terminals. Wait about 10 minutes before re-connecting battery terminals. That will reset your car's computer. Should start if there is enough juice in the battery. If you hear a clicking sound when you turn on the engine it means your battery is too low to turn the engine and probably means it's time for a new battery. Get someone to give you a boost and it should start fine. Your battery is probably original equipment and more than 8 years old. Thats about maximum life expectancy for a battery.

Low Battery Life.

You may have a bad battery. These batteries also lose capacity over time and over the number of charge/recharge cycles.
In addition, many batteries need to be fully discharged about once a month in order to keep themselves calibrated.
Once you lose the ability to get a complete charge, you need to replace the battery.

What is the battery life expectancy for the 2006 Buick Lucerne?

Battery life is a very complicated issue, there are TONS of factors. High temperature kills batteries, if the fluid goes low, that kills batteries. If you forget and leave lights on, and the battery goes totally dead, (totally dead, zippo, not anything) that kills batteries.

Alternator diodes that fail kills batteries. So 4 to 8 years is typical life IN ABSENCE of the above types of issues. My favorite battery is Interstate. They just work really well. Costco has great battery prices, bumpy for service... Really Dislike Sears die easy.

With no mechanical problem,
It may Cost 90$ to fix it

But first test A Proper Pair of Ni-MH rechargeble Batteries

When trying to take a pic, camera shuts off

Hi, try a brand new battery; if the camera has been ideal for a while the battery could be dead.
