Your camera requires four AA size batteries. There are several factors that contribute to battery life: NiMH: This is the best solution for enjoyment and cost savings. NiMH batteries typically last longer per charge than the average alkaline batteries. NiMH batteries are rechargeable batteries, so they can be used several times and thereby reduce the expense of continually purchasing new batteries. NiMH batteries are typically sold with a power adapter for charging. The life of these batteries can often be determined by the mAh rating, the higher the mAh rating on the battery, the longer that they will last. NiMH batteries do not have the memory effect associated with NiCd batteries, which means that these batteries can be recharged at any time and at your convenience (you do not have to wait for the batteries to completely drain between charges). Lithium: Energizer has introduced a new series of Lithium batteries that provide optimum performance and long life for disposable AA size batteries. Laboratory studies shows that Lithium batteries last more than three times as long as standard Alkaline batteries. This means more hours of fun and satisfaction with your digital camera. These lithium batteries are not rechargeable, they are long lasting. Alkaline: Using the Display, downloading images, playback, zoom and flash all require some battery power to operate and may decrease the number of shots per set of batteries. Performance may vary based on the Alkaline batteries selected. The benefit of being able to use alkaline batteries is that you can find then almost anywhere if needed. Manganese: If you are using manganese batteries, the typical battery life will be about 2 - 5 shots. Then the camera will indicate that battery power is low and may shut-down. To avoid this experience, use either Alkaline or NiMH batteries. Optimum Solution: Use a set of NiMH batteries for longer use and to reduce the expense of continually buying new batteries. It may also be a good idea to keep a spare set of NiMH batteries for other devices that require AA size batteries on a regular basis. Use AA Alkaline batteries when the NiMH batteries need to be recharged and you want to continue enjoying the use of your camera.

Does the replacement battery have to be rechargeable

The reason for using rechargeable batteries is because cameras use a lot of power and the batteries can deplete quickly. Some have specially made batteries that only fit that particular camera like my Canon S10.

If they take a standard size AA battery, you can use good quality Manganese Alkaline batteries like Duracell, but you are better off choosing Lithium equivalents for the extra power and length of life. For rechargeable batteries, Sanyo Eneloop are the best and are the brand leader.

'make model (what it is)' in all questions please.

How do i know that this battery is best for my digital camera?

Digital cameras should have nickel metal hydride (NI-MH) for long life usage. Ordinary alkaline batteries have no service life in digital cameras

The batteries are dischraging every fast

hello sarma... two things. First remove the batteries and clean the contacts of the batteries and the camera battery contacts with the eraser on the end of a common pencil.

Second, if these are special rechargeable batteries, it is probably time to replace them. Joe

Camera does not turn on without power cord.

Hello Leona... When the camera will not turn on with out the power cord there are a few things to consider:

1. Is the battery charged?
2. Is the battery any good.... to find out just take the camera and the battery into any radio shack store and ask them to test the battery for you..... a free service.
3. Are the battery contacts inside the camera corroded....Remove the battery and use the eraser end of a common pencil to scrub those battery contacts clean.
4. IF none of these steps solves the problem then take or mail your camera into the nearest Kodak repair center. If you open the camera up yourself you will void the warranty. Joe

HOW TO REPAIR THE STUCK CAMERA LENS? Once i turn it on it retracts by itself, how i can fix it?

hello elen..... This happens hen the battery is low or bad. Begin by fully charging the battery. If this solves it great. IF not, remove the battery and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with the eraser end of a common pencil. Then clean the contacts on the battery the same way. Reinsert the battery and check it out.

IF all of this does not solve the problem take the camera to a camera shop and ask them to put in a new battery to see if that will fix the problem. Joe

Hi, my olympus digital camera FE-310 (1,6 years old) often indicates immediately 'battery empty' even with fresh batteries. I tried out different kinds of batteries, but the problem seems to get worse...

Make sure you have the right kind of batteries. These kinds of cameras can use the batteries very fast if they are not the correct kind recommended by the user manual. Read the user manual.
If the camera works correctly, and takes pictures and movies okay, and still uses batteries quickly, then more than likely, the batteries must be the wrong kind. Never use the cheapest kind of double-A in these cameras.
If you use rechargeable batteries, make sure they are charged fully before using the camera.

Try this: Turn the camera on, make sure that the menu setting for the kind of batteries you have installed is set correctly. If you set the wrong kind of batteries, the problems you are having is a common thing.
Also turn the camera on, then set all the menus to the default settings. Then make sure that the kind of batteries you are using is set in the menu as (if alkaline set it so... If rechargeable, set so ... other options may exist in menus).

Hello, I replaced the batteries twice with energizer advanced lithiums, camera says to replace the batteries and dies.


Have you tried any other type of battery's ? Also were you using that same type of battery previously or was it your first time trying them ?

Try using a different type then post back and let me know what happens.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!


Make sure you have the internal menu for the battery selection correct.
Choosing the wrong battery may cause this.

Rechargeable batteries and alkaline batteries are not the same.

This may also be a condition and problem caused by the camera itself, and may need repair.
