回答“Why is my battery life so short?”Unfortunately, these DO NOT SOLVE the problem. Taking others about batteries or chargers basically thinking others are not knowledgeable, and I will reserve comment on these replies. The LUMIX 1000M2 is by far the worst camera when it comes to battery performance. The camera seems to work well and will hold a charge but at other times it can be turned off with ½ battery and in the morning be dead? This is not typical for any battery or camera or from not charging properly or other lame responses. I myself have noted this on several occasions with multible different batteries. No idea as to why? Suggest, until a REAL SOLUTION is found, do what I did.. But a half dozen batteries and portable (Car or AC) charger. As stated by previous, ISB is a poor option for charging.
