Hi there.
This is a common problem with just about any digital camera out there (even my own).
After spending loads of money on top named brands and types i found that Duracell Alkaline batteries lasted just about the longest in my camera which is a Samsung S 500. Even so i would advise that you stock on them because the camera's do tend to eat the battery power.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Battery problem New batteries don't last as long as when the camera was new. The LCD screen takes too long to come to life and the auto focus isn't as sharp as it used to be. Any suggestions on battery type? Using energizer rechargeable? Thanks

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.

Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries.

Brand new battery won't hold charge. Camera is three years old. I bought an extra battery when I bought the camera.

I'm having the same symptom--the charge lasts for only a few photos--maybe 50 without the flash.

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

Low Battery When turning the camera on, the screen often says "Low Battery", even if the batteries are brand new. The problems seems to last a few hours, then it turns on as normal.

Sometimes, it cuts out to "Low Battery" in the middle of taking photos, when the charge indicator on the screen has just been at full.

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged

How long do Kodak KLIC-7001 batteries usually last? I just bought a new charger (K7700) for my battery and when I put it in the green light flashes and then the red and then goes right off. Why is this happening and what is the good of a charger if it won't charge the rechargeable batteries?
