The best batteries on the market are the Energizer Lithium AA cells. There are 2 types, but the Ultimate Lithium are the top drawer batteries. A bit pricey, but because they last so long, you really do save money (and frustration) in the long run.

Batteries I have a Gateway DC-M40 camera. The batteries drain very fast and the situation keeps on getting worse. Yesterday I loaded a fresh set of batteries & they drained to 25% within hours & I had not taken a single picture & the camera was OFF all trhe time.
Regular alkaline batteries do not last very long in this camera due to the high current demands of the flash. I recommend using either the Energizer lithium batteries or a type labeled specifically for digital cameras. Yes they cost more, but will l ... Gateway DC-M40 Digital Camera

Pentax Optio E30. This camera is eating through the batteries. Even when the camera is turned off the batteries are being drained. I have tried rechargeable batteries and new heavy duty batteries and even these drain within a matter of 30 minutes or so and at times it will not even work with these. Do you know what is wrong?

Rollei dp 6200 - I have problems with trying to charge the battery. It rapidly loses the charge - within a copule of hours one third of the charge is lost and within 24 - 36 hours it is completely falt. This ia all without using the camera. I have changed the memory card as Rollei Service told me that the camera does not support 1GB, but even with 512MB it is the same. This has been going on for a couple of years at least and the original camera was replaced by Rollei within the first two years

I have a DSC H10 camera. Today I put it in a plastic with a water bottle that wasn't close tightly. It got wet and now I've taken out out the battery and the memory card. I let the water drain out, I wiped out the battery chamber. I turned it on a few hours after the damage was done and the screen is not very bright. Also, now I can't access my photos, but I could earlier. What do i do? Do I have to let it dry out for 24 hours before turning it on again? Do you think the damage is permanent?
Turning it on before it completely dries out usually causes a short circuit. It can take up to a week with your camera buried in a bowl of dry rice to dry out. However, since you turned it on, it may be too late but try it anyway. ... Digital Cameras
My Canon powershot SD20 seems to constantly have a drained battery. I have two batteries for it, and each one seems to be good for about five minutes, then the camera says change the battery pack and it shuts off. But when I plug the battery in to charge the green fully charged light comes on within a minute. Are BOTH of the batteries defective, or is this a problem with the camera itself?

The batterie charger for my Casio Exilim EX-Z77 has a blinking red light instead of a continous red light when i try charging the batterie. also, it doesnt appear to be charging it at all. Left in in for several hours and it is still empty.

My Sigma SD9 rapidly drains battery power; and I don't mean over a short period of time, but over a few minutes. Regardless of new or fresh rechargeable batteries, the drainage is frustratingly consistent. Have had the camera quit responding regardless of 3 sets of AA rechargeables, or non-rechargeables with more than 3/4 capacity left installed within 45 minutes of my last attempt to use this camera at a Botanical garden close to where I live. Other than junk it is there a way to solve this
