All of a sudden, my Kodak Easy Share digital camera would turn off as soon as it turned on. Or do nothing. Changing batteries didn't help. I even tested all the batteries on a battery tester. The tester was showing the batteries to be OK, when in fact, they were all subprime. Before I threw it out, I checked one last time with another (5th set) of batteries and it worked just fine. And all of the batteries had expiration dates some two years down the road.
Product: Sunbeam Battery Tester
I found a battery tester at the local Dollar Tree store. Manufacturer is Sunbeam, and it tests all 1.5V (AAA, AA, C and D) and 9V batteries. It shows you the charge level, from 20% to 100%.
It runs on little button batteries that come with it but are packaged in plastic so they stay fresh until you use the tester. It works!
