Dear All,

I have been using the battery adaptor MB 5700 with Ni-MH battery. However, this adaptor has caused me problem since the battery will be drained out so quickly, say, after taking 20 to 30 shoots with fully charged battery. The battery I used including Sanyo 1850 mah and Sony 2300 mah while the charger is from Sony.

Appreciatedif some one can share their experience in using the MB 5700.

Hello Akcm,

You may be suffering from a bad battery...

Charge your batteries up and when the charge cycle is complete, remove them and let them sit for about 10 minutes. Then measure the voltage of each battery. They should be around 1.42 volts.

You can do the same thing when you run out of power. Remove each battery and check the voltage.

Let us know what you find out.
