How long should a crv3 battery last?

\015 Just how long should a crv3 battery last? I'm finding that when the battery still registers 3 volts of life in it my camera says that I need to replace the battery & won't let the camera work until I put in a new one. Is this normal??\015

Answers :

I use crv3 batteries in my Pentax istD. Believe it or not, they last over a year! Keep in mind that the simple act of testing the voltage of a crv3 will shorten its life. Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? Sometimes, an invisible film on the contacts forms and gives a false reading of battery life.

Battery Problem I was given an SD9 last month and so far like it except for some battery issues. Using fresh AA's it will often give me the 'low battery' warning as soon as they are loaded. I bought the CRV3's thinking that would solve it, it did initially, but after about 40 shots I took them out, tried some new AA's and again the low battery warning... replaced them with the CRV3's again, low battery (surely they were not run out after 40 shots?!) Everything is fine using power cable... but

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.
