Try CDHK

You could try downloading the hack CDHK. http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page One of the things you get is a battery level indicator which might be more useful to you. It shows percentage of charge remaining in the battery. Of course there many other benefits to using the hack. I have an A710 and S3 and have the hack on both.

I think most battery indicators that come with the cameras are not very accurate to begin with because they often only light up when the battery is just about dead or too long before the battery actually dies. Once you get use to a camera then you'll have a better idea. It's a good idea to always carry spares anyway.

I agree that maybe buying elsewhere or at least checking the serial numbers to make sure there a sufficient break might help.
