    Default Problem with Sanyo 2100 Rechargeable Batteries

    I am having problems with my Sanyo 2100 batts recently. Whenever I charge them 1 week ago, and use it with my S1/A40, some sets of 2100 batts can't be used (the cam will give me an error msg "Change camera batteries") or I will be able to use, but will run out of batteries quite fast.

    Any idea why is this happening? I haven't been using the batteries much by the way.

    TIA.

    Not sure they are related to your case or not, since you are using 2100mAh instead of the 2500.
    If you have another set of battery, try and see got similar problem with your camera?

    Mine is 2100, whereas the thread is for 2500.

    Do you have a multimeter to check the voltage on your batteries after charging and after usage?

    If you can find someone who uses a similar camera, pass the batteries to them to use. At least that will sort out whether its a camera or battery problem.

    i contacted sanyo before regarding this and they said it was the 2500 batch that had issues not 2100.however they can help you test your batts out if you willing to bring down to their office.

    i have the same issue with my 2100s.

    look at your batteries against the light....the details are engraved on the body of the batteries BTW, did you expose your batts to extreme temperatures ? left it near strong heat source ? all batteries have a tolerance level to heat.

    I have to go back home to check the batch number.

    Discharging is too fast. I can leave it overnight after charging and the batteries just don't work.

    I too have problems with Sanyo rechargeable battery, refuse to charge up, and those that charge up discharge very fast, first the problem was the newly bought 2500, then same problem on the 2 years old 2100, and now even 2300, I have confirmed ALL my Sanyo battery got problem and unuseable anymore.
    Now I do not trust Sanyo battery, as my work require very reliable battery power source.
