Why is my battery life so short?

I've had my camera for a while, and it doesn't stay charged as long as it used to. Is a component malfunctioning, and if so should I replace it?

Is this a good question?

All batteries suffer from shorter battery life when they get older. The battery isn't really malfunctioning when this happens, so you don't need to replace it. But if you need your camera to last longer between recharging, you may choose to replace it. This part of the troubleshooting guide should help you replace your battery and extend your battery life.

Thank you Jesse. I have never used an external charger, just the usb cable. Could the problem be the lead and not the battery?

charging by USB is much less dependable because of the current limitations of the charger or device at the other end of the cable, along with limitations in the USB system itself.

Panasonic's charger is more reliable and will be faster, and should help the battery stay in good condition for a long time. My batteries, OEM and branded, have lasted three years of hard use without much fade.

Unfortunately, these DO NOT SOLVE the problem. Taking others about batteries or chargers basically thinking others are not knowledgeable, and I will reserve comment on these replies.

The LUMIX 1000M2 is by far the worst camera when it comes to battery performance. The camera seems to work well and will hold a charge but at other times it can be turned off with ½ battery and in the morning be dead?

This is not typical for any battery or camera or from not charging properly or other lame responses.

I myself have noted this on several occasions with multible different batteries.

No idea as to why?

Suggest, until a REAL SOLUTION is found, do what I did..

But a half dozen batteries and portable (Car or AC) charger.

As stated by previous, ISB is a poor option for charging.
