SD-10 and CR-V3 lithium rechargeables?

Hi:

Trying to break free of the dismal battery life I seem to get with NiMH rechargeables AAs, I bought some mobyPower rechargeable CR-V3 lithium batteries from Thomas Distributing. Wanted to have a better experience with maybe another year out of this camera.

Having charged them up, and, according to directions put them in the battery tray, I get no indication that any power is flowing when I turn the SD10 on. I think I may have once gotten a flicker of just the battery picture.

Has anyone had success with these batteries?

And, can someone tell me if contact is only made with these batteries via the connections at the end of the springs in the tray ie with only the "round hole" end of each battery? It looks to me as though there is more space between the "square hole" end of one of the batteries and the tray and in fact no contact is made there. I think I can see a space. Just wondering if this is as it's supposed to be.

Thanks for any suggestions anyone might have.

Ralph B.
