How long does the battery last before recharging?

Should I take out battery when camera is not in use?

The life of the battery depends on how much you are using the on-board flash and how much you are using the LCD screen on the back of the camera. Your XT manual tells you what you should expect for a few different circumstances.

The battery in my 20D can get anywhere from only a couple of hundred shots (using the preview screen a lot), to about 700. I just use it till it quits then exchange it with my spare battery. If you don't have a spare I'd really recommend getting one. Some use www.sterlingtek.com for spares since they are much cheaper than the Canon ones. I only have canon batteries, so I can't comment on how good the Sterlingtek ones are, but I have heard others say they are as good as, if not better than Canon.

You do not need to remove the battery when the camera is not being use.

Thanks for the link Bob. Order the extra battery for my Rebel (first dSLR)
Rating for this battery is 7.4v with 1800mAh. AWSOME :shock:.
Order late Friday night after reading this thread and got it today (Monday). To my surprise, it got here over the weekend (NM to AL).
Will shoot with factory battery until it run out then with replacement 1800mAh to see howmany more picturesI can get on it.
Will post my finding when I'm done (when ever that is....):-)
