I also have that problem with the battery. I have another complaint. The button to turn on the camera is so small that I have a terrible time getting it on. I am 74 years old and when it goes on, I love the camera but it is so frustrating for instance, when I was at my grand daughters college graduation and she was coming down the path going to the stage and I could not get the camera to turn on. I was so upset as this only happens once in my grand daughters life. I originally had a cannon and it was great until someone stole it from me. If I cannot get this problem along with the battery problem fixed, it looks like I am going to ask my children to get me another cannon for my birthday.
