Battery Problems The Canon PowerShot A480 is sucking the life out of the batteries! I get about half a dozen shots and it says I need new batteries - I change to fully-charged ones and as soon as I put them in they are almost gone (that icon is flashing at me). I have used new rechargeble and old ones ... I've used two different rechargers ... I've tried leaving the batteries in until the red light goes out on the charger and I've also tried leaving the batteries in for a day or so past the red
