Having problems with your Energizer Duo Battery Charger for AA and AAA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries ?
Energizer +AA NIMH Batteries consumed quickly
\015 Hi, I m using Energizer +AA NIMH Batteries for my Canon powershot S5IS camera. Recently, the batteries are consumed too quickly, on an average of 60-70 snaps, whereas it's orighinal capacity is 420-450 snaps. I am not sure whether the problem is with my Energizer Charger or Energizer batteries. I've checked the camera with the service centre nad there is no problem with the camera.\015\012\015\012Please note that on your charger Owner's manual, I've read a point which says "Batteries that have not been used for several weeks or months (as in my case) may require 2 or 3 charging cycles to reach full capacity. Can you pls explain what it means by '2 or 3 charging cycles'. Pls explain me the time frame.\015\012\015\012If the above paragraph does not pertains to the actual solution then pls suggest whether should I go with the brand new batteries. Also pls suggest that if one goes for brand new batteries, does he has take a brand new charger of the same brand. This was the tip given to me by the Canon Service Executive..\015\012\015\012Awaiting your timely help..\015\012My details\015\012Nilesh Dhakle\015\012Versove, Andheri (W)\015\012E-mail - [email protected]\015\012phone - 9870122331\015\012\015\012\015\012Thanx\015

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W5 5.1MP - purchased about four and half years ago (ancient in technology years I know) - but it's a good camera and has served me well. For about six months I've had issues with it staying powered on. Have used rechargeable batteries (the ones it came with) and same size Energizer rechargables forever (it takes double A batteries) - I thought it was the batteries I'd been using but bought a fresh pack of regular consumable double A's - Duracell and same problem - it

Hi, I have a Finepix A600, it has a very short battery life using NiMh batteries. While it was under warranty it had a software upgrade to improve the battery threshold tolerance of the camera. This made some improvement, but the battery life is still short. The NiMh batteries are fine. Is there anything that can be done. Thanks

Batteries "depleted" my camera was working perfect with some rechargeable NiMh batteries i had bought, giving me about 400 shots / charge. However at one point, for no apparent reason, when i used them, they would be shown as 'depleted' by the camera after about 4-5 shots, shutting the camera down. It stayed like this so I decided to buy a set of new NiMh batteries, i bought panasonic brand. But the problem remains now, whenever i insert batteries, they will be depleted (or at least according to

I charged Energizer batteries on the Energizer Battery charger I bought. When I put them in my camera and turned it on, it read, " Warning!! Battery Exhausted." How can increase my battery life?
Digital cameras eat batteries so make sure you have ones that are up to the task. The lifetime of rechargeables is measured in mAh and you want around 2000 mAh batteries for the task. Have you tried the batteries in another device like a torch to m ... Digital Cameras

Camera was dropped in water for just seconds. It won't change between modes: play, video rec, and still shot. It is constantly in still shot mode. The battery dies quickly. I bought a new battery and it still dies quickly. Pictures taken have vertical lines and often are whited out. Anything I can do to fix this? Would it be better to buy another camera or have this one fixed?

My Premier DS-6065 does not like NiMH rechargeable batteries, unless fresh from the charger; once a couple of shots have been taken, it sulks and won't work! It is deliriously happy with Alkaline batteries. Is this normal, or is there an internat adjustment requirewd for it ot accept the lower terminal voltage fro the NiMHs?
No adjustment can be made in your camera for battery type. NiMH is not a good choice for your camera. I would go with a Lithium Ion battery AND make sure you buy the charger specifically for it. It makes a difference!!Or, just continue to use t ... Digital Cameras
Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut
I've never had that problem, all I can suggest would be to fiddle with the contacts in the grip, or put a folded bit of paper behind the battery before you put on the little door to push it in further. ... Olympus Camedia E-20N Digital Camera
My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries. Why does the new camera only work with batteries that have come directly off the charger. This is a nuisance as I

Canon PowerShot A495 - Brand new. Used it once and took 40 photos. It then told me to change the batteries which I did. From then on it keeps saying "change the batteries" I've used alkalines and also rechargeable NiMH, These are either new or fully recharged batteries and still I get the same message. I have also cleaned the terminals inside the camera and even those on the batteries themselves. No change. This is clearly not a battery problem. This is a camera problem and its seems I am not th

I have Canon power shot S2 IS digital camera.I bought it around 2 years back.Now my camera is showing the sign of "change the batteries" even though the batteries are fully charged and the lens does not come out..When I tried the same batteries on other digicamera they are working fine. Very few times the camera starts working but after taking 2 or 3 pics the low battery sign appears on the screen.I use AA size NiMH Sony batteries. Can you let me know the solution to my issue.
I suggest replacing a fresh battery will most likely solve your prob, overtime rechargeable battery can drain easily, try changing with a new battery and see if it does work well, there might be insufficient current, thats why it tends to drop of vol ... Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
Bad Battery My DIgimax 530 has had battery problems for some time now. I know that this problem has not been like this forever. When I put a new battery in, it uses it quite quickly, then says low battery. The only problem is, when I test the batteries with my battery tester, it says that they are partially full (still in the "good" zone). I am just a kid and don't have much money, I use it for the video feature. It's warranty has timed out, Is there a simple solution?

First, I am a 1st class amateur, so jargon is ?Greek? to me. However, I am studying the manual dilligently. My question concerns the batteries. I am using Panasonic Heavy Duty AA?s. I am always very quickly getting the message ?Battery empty.?, even when I have just changed batteries. Or there?s always that flashing battery icon on screen, shortly followed by the ?battery empty? screen. Why? I am not using zoom. No repeated shooting. Monitor not left on. Not connected to a computer. MF is not on
It's essential that you state the exact make and model of your camera.\015\012But in general many are incompatible with regular AA batteries (even\015\012heavy duty ones)and instead require that you use NiMh or even Li-ion\015\012recharge ... Olympus Digital Cameras
