A friend of mine bought a used camera through clubsnap. The previous owner says he had not used the camera for quite a while. He say he hasnt used the camera for some time so he didnt charge the battery, but there was a little bit of power left to try.
The 2 Original Canon BP-511 7.4V 1100mAh (Li-ion) batteries that comes with the camera does not seems to hold any charge. Also he gave her a New Canon CB-5L charger.
Both the batteries are place on the charger, the charger indicates charge complete within 30sec. The batteries were left to charge for another 5 & 7 hrs respectively. Both batteries is flat when used on the camera after the 5 & 7 hrs of charging.
I do not know if the charger is charging the batteries as the batteries are not warm even after 5-7 hours of charging. So i dont know its the charger, the batteries or the camera having problem. Anyone has experience?
Are the batteries are dead?
