My 20D has worked perfectly for me until this week.It has begun to drain batteriers at a very fest pace.A freshly charged battery goes about 15 to 20 shots and then shows low charge.I have tried it with and without the flash with no real difference in the results.I have 2 Canon batteries and 3 aftermarket batteries and all seem to perform the same.I also tried switching from my 28-135 IS lens to the kit lens ,again same results.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

PS; as long as the battery holds up the camera performs normally.

After doing some more online research I am suspicious of my charger.It is an energizer brand aftermarket charger and I have noticed that even after a 12 hour charge the light is still blinking.I am going to try charging my batteries on my fathers charger and see if it makes a difference.

A different charger made no difference.

[align=center]I bought a new charger and it did the trick.All batteries took a charge and I shot my nieces wedding on one battery Saturday.For some reason my fathers charger did no better than my own,go figure.

Thanks for all the helpful advice,it gave me the warm fuzzies all over.
