Expected Battery Life

 98
Chapter 12
m To lengthen battery life, limit the following activities:
– Using Liveview (using the camera screen as the viewfinder, see 
page 15
)
– Reviewing your pictures on the camera screen (see 
page 37
)
– Excessive use of the flash
m Dirt on the battery contacts can affect battery life. Wipe the contacts with a 
clean, dry cloth before loading batteries in the camera.
m Battery life depends significantly on battery age, usage conditions, and type. 
Digital cameras are demanding on batteries. Not all batteries perform well 
under these challenging conditions.
m Battery performance is reduced at temperatures below 41
°  
F (5
°  
C). 
Carry spare batteries when using your camera in cold weather, and keep 
them warm. Do not discard cold batteries that do not work; when they 
return to room temperature, they may be usable. 
m Do not allow batteries to touch metal objects, including coins. Otherwise, a 
battery may short circuit, discharge energy, become hot, or leak.
