Default A80 battery life?

Where can I find status of battery?
5 days are pass and it still work. It is very good but I need to know when it will be over.

I have an A60 and when the batteries get low a red icon showing a partially drained battery appears on the lcd screen. Maybe the A80 is the same.

you shouldn't base it on days, you should base it on how many pictures you take and how much you use the LCD, etc.

check steves review, I think he says roughly how long it should last on a set of good rechargeables. The A80 is awesome on battery life though, I have to say that much. I've never bothered to try and figure out exactly how long mine has lasted, cause I always carry a second set of batteries with me just in case and have never needed to guage how long they'll last.

Thank you, but I do not think that is good from Canon.

I have had the A80 for 6 months now.
The Camera User Guide page 23 explains battery status indications.
However, I have found the battery indicator only shows when the batteries are reaching the end of their usage.
Practically, I find that I get the one text message on the LCD saying replace batteries.
I suspect that when the batteries decide to say "I'm finished", it's over in a flash (excuse the pun ).
It is almost a must to carry a spare set around with you unless you are prepared to be caught short just when that photographic opportunity you have been waiting all day for arrives.
