Default Change the batteries..Canon A550

I have got one Canon powershot A550 3 years back.....also purchased 4 rechargable Sanyo 2100mAh AA batteries....It worked fine for 2 years & give me 300+ shots in one charge.... but later it always shows low battery indication & now a days it shows "change the batteries" screen after 2 shots only..
Is it the problem with the camera or my batteries has gone faulty ? How to check/confirm this ?
b/w my one friend recently suggested me to use 2700mAh batteries for this model..

It could be the batteries. Rechargeable batteries have a limited life, and will not last forever. I'd try a new set of batteries to see if you get different results. If they still are still draining quickly, you may need to replace the camera.

That is why i bought a Charger with "Refresh Tecnology". The Batteries live longer with it, i only need to do a refresh every 2 Month.
