Why do the batteries in my camera do not last ?
If one battery has a lower voltage than the others then it is
will pull the others down. Replace it.
To test for this, when the batteries are discharged measure the
batteries voltage with a
voltmeter. Only place a voltmeter across a battery
instantly and never use an ampmeter.
As rechargeable batteries self discharge
they must be charged before putting them into storage. If left in a
that is turned off the batteries will discharge through the charger.
