My wonderful digital camera has but one flaw- it eats through batteries. I am not joking. You can not use cheap dollar store batteries. I have tried some brand new out of the package batteries that would not even turn my camera on, or only last long enough to take one picture. I use my digital camera alot. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to take a picture and having the camera shut off because the batteries are dead. My husband gave me these Kodak Digital Camera batteries about two weeks ago as an early Christmas gift. I do not know how much they were but he said they were pretty expensive for batteries. They are also rechargeable, but you have to buy the charger separately. I have taken approx. 50 pictures and so far these batteries have held up. The only downside is the price. Although if you think about how much you spend buying semi descent batteries and having to replace them, that turns out to be pricier in the long run. You definitely get your moneys worth off of these batteries because they are rechargeable. These batteries are great for the simple fact they are made stronger for digital cameras. I say quit buying batteries over and over and invest your money in these.
Sorry the flash on this picture is a little bright ;o)
