How to get the Best Battery Life for Your

Digital Camera

No matter what digital camera you choose, chances are it's going to need

batteries.

A lot of the point and shoot cameras for sale right now actually run on AA batteries. You would think that would make things easier, but that's not always the case. If you're lucky your camera will come with a nice pair of rechargeable batteries that were designed for use with your model. If no rechargeable batteries are included in your package, you may want to shop around to find a nice set. Look for digital camera rechargeable batteries package deals that come with a charger. Of course, not everyone likes rechargeable batteries. They do keep the waste of the landfills, but you often hear complaints that the charge time isn't very good, especially in regards to electronics and cameras. If you want to go for a long life disposable battery look for the AA batteries that are designed to go in electronics. Usually these are noticeable on the shelf because their packaging is silver or blue and quite shiny, compared to the usual black standard batteries we're so used to seeing. These electronic device batteries will last about 3 to 5 times longer than a pair of the standard batteries. Whatever you do, avoid the dollar store batteries. Speaking from experience if you put a pair of dollar store AA batteries in your digital camera, it won't even be enough juice to snap one photo. I recommended that you not buy batteries and chargers from unknown off brands, such as you might find at dollar stores and bargain outlets. Purchase batteries and chargers from stores that have established reputation just to be on the safe side. Your camera is an investment and you want to protect it and get the longest life out of it that you can. When looking for good rechargeble batteries, you also need to consider the type of camera you are using. Not all cameras are compatible with rechargeables, or standard batteries. There are still many types of cameras that are only compatible with Nickel-Cadmium types. Read the product labeling carefully to make sure you're purchasing what your camera needs. You can also adjust your digital camera usage to make your batteries last longer. If you're not using the camera's flash, then better turn it off. Try turning off your LCD monitor when you aren't going to be using it. Take advantage of the AC power when transferring or uploading pictures to your computer and give the batteries a break.
