AA batteries no longer the trend?

AA batteries just do not always get the job done!

I actually scanned all 5 pages of replies before I wrote this to see if anyone mentioned my experience. My family likes canon products and over the years we have worked through about 10 different A series canon cameras.

We have noticed that on many of the models as they start to age they will give a "low Battery signal" on fully charged batteries, both NiCad and Alkaline.

Somewhere in all the DP forums someone said to try the AA Lithiums and sure enough it cured the problem.

So the point is that maybe the manufacturers know something about the energy strain these cameras put on batteries and have learned that only lithium will do the job, so they may as well make it a rechargable!

Just thought I would throw open a new angle on the subject if anyone understands it better please, chime in.
