Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera ?

Alternative Charging Methods???

\015 I have recently purchased the XTi from canon and I am wondering if there are any alternative charging methods to charge the removable battery? I used own the powershot G3, which had a removable battery pack also, so you could either remove the battery and use a wall outlet, or use the cable that came with it and charge the battery without removing it from the camera. Does the XTi have this capability/jack or am I out of luck??thankp3ter\015

Answers :

Your out of luck. This method of charging is considered (nowadays) unprofessional. Thats why you rarely see manufactures such as Canon/Sony/Nikon (the big 3) use this - and company's like Kodak will. Yes, it is convenient, BUT, battery chargers are prone to go out. They work very hard, and get very hot, adding stress to other components. There is no such thing as a bullet proof charger. Many (quality) manufactures know this and avoid this added hassle. See, if the charger goes out then it's likely to disable the rest of the camera and it's not worth the risk.

The battery for my z33wp won't charge anymore. It has only been fully charged 3-4 times. The camera's fine because with the little bit of battery left, it still worked perfectly. I don't know if the fault is with the charger or the battery. I'm still just about covered with the 6 month warranty, but im just wondering if this is a common problem. Would purchasing an alternative battery and charger be a good idea?
