I have been having problems keeping any length of charge in my lion batteries.
I put them on the charger and the charge for a couple hours then say they are fully charged. A day or two in the camera and they are done.
Am I missing something?
Are you using externals? (this won't answer the original question but maybe lengthen the time)
Yes I am using externals but I also have one of these cameras (actually a J20) for a regualr hand held camera. Same problem. Externals help but not sure about the life of these little bugers.
I guess this should be in the batteries forum though. Charles if you want to move this go ahead.
I guess my question should be how many times can they be recharged before they start loosing their effectiveness?
I had this issue, and it turned out to be the charger was not working properly, actually I had 2 chargers and both were not working, I ordered another charger with 2 batteries and solved my problem
Actually just got to reading this again and thought of something. I have a HP for a hand held camera and if liveview mode (screen on) is on then the battery goes dead within 20 pics or something like that. With it off get alot more. Here reading the manual it says this about it happening when in liveview mode.
