Increasing the Life of the Battery in Your Digital Camera

 Increasing the Life of the Battery in Your Digital Camera

With all the features modern digital cameras have, maintaining batteries might be difficult.  There are some things you can do to extend the time your batteries stay charged, though this may end up being your biggest expense.  Let's start with the top three energy consumers.

The LCD display consumes the most energy.  If you don't think you'll use this feature, you can turn it off.  Power can be saved by using the viewfinder on the camera.  The flash is another significant power consumer.  Turn off the flash and take your photos in natural light whenever possible.  This will help preserve your battery for situations in which you will be forced to use the flash.  Your constant use of the zoom will consume a third of your battery.  Zooming in and out requires more energy than maintaining a constant zoom.  Try to settle on a setting you like and use it as much as you can.

Make sure Power Saving mode is on, or simply turn off your camera when it's not in use, are some additional ways to extend the life of your battery.Keep your camera and batteries warm in your jacket during cold conditions until you're ready to use them. Batteries drain rapidly in the cold.

Batteries should be kept out of the sun and other heat sources in a cool, dry place.Avoid replaying your previously taken pictures too often.  *Use the AC adapter. Try to determine when you snap the picture whether it is a "keeper" or needs to be deleted, and then delay reviewing until the pictures are downloaded to your computer. The majority of digital cameras come with an adapter so you can plug them directly into a power outlet.  The AC converter will lengthen the life of your batteries if you don't anticipate moving around much and are close to a power source.

You won't be able to completely prevent the need for additional purchases or battery recharges, but by taking a few precautions, this will happen less frequently.
