3 tips to extend your Sanyo digital camera battery's life
Tip #1: proper use of the LCD
Of all the components in a camera, the LCD display probably consumes the most power. But there are certain measures you can take to reduce its impact on Sanyo battery life. Some cameras have an option where you can adjust the brightness of the LCD.
If your Sanyo battery is weak, lower the intensity to an acceptable viewing level. Do note that lowering the brightness may affect viewing the screen under sunlight, so use your palm to shade the camera to prevent glare.
Tip #2: use power-saving options
If you delve into your camera's set-up menu, you might find an option that puts the shooter to sleep after a stipulated time. This reduces the power intake, but at the same time keeps it ready for action when a picture opportunity pops up.
We understand from Sanyo at a recent workshop that leaving the shooter in sleep mode consumes less energy than switching it on and off constantly. Combine this with the above tip and you should be able to squeeze out a few more shots before the cell goes flat.
Tip #3: Sanyo camera battery maintenance
Caring for your Sanyo camera battery
is a conscious effort. Most people find their device's cell performance deteriorates after a year or so, and this can be partially attributed to careless maintenance. For instance, you should not charge the battery when it's still relatively full.
Also, if you are not going to use the Sanyo digital camera battery and Sanyo charger for a prolonged period of time, make sure there is constantly some power left in it to keep the juice running. Last but not least, don't drop the Sanyo battery as it can cause the polarity of the cell to go haywire. Experienced Sanyo camera users will swear by these tips to keep their cameras' batteries in tip-top condition.
There are more ways to keep your Sanyo camera battery healthy. Here are some quick tips.
If your point-and-shoot has an optical viewfinder, switch off your LCD and use that instead. But do note that some of them may not be parallax-error corrected, so the sides of the image may get cropped off.
In cold countries, keep your gadget warm by hiding it underneath the jacket you're wearing. Low temperatures can cause Sanyo battery to drain faster, so warming them with your body heat keeps the Sanyo batteries in optimal condition for more shots.
Try not to review your pictures too much or to record long video clips when the Sanyo camera battery is running low. These two functions are among the most draining on the battery
, so minimise these activities if you intend to take more shots.
