Problems with Insignia NS-DSC7B09 blue digital camera and battery life

I've read all of the messages and solutions regarding the 7.0 MP blue digital camera and the short lifespan of the AA batteries.  Has there been any REAL solution to this?  Is this a true defect for this model?  The solutions seem to be to have the model serviced.  I realize this is not a new topic, but has anyone had any luck or further feedback/help regarding this issue?  I thought I did my research before I bought an inexpensive camera and don't remember reading anything about this until only after I got it home.

Re: Problems with Insignia NS-DSC7B09 blue digital camera and battery life

Hello strafe1701,

Welcome to Community@Insignia™!

Battery life is always a concern for electronic devices with LCD displays.  Battery life depends on frequency and duration of use since battery-saving features like the LCD turning off when the device is idle for one minute are built-in.  My personal solution for my battery hog camera (not an Insignia™ product) was investing in rechargeable batteries.  Other solutions may include "upgrading" from alkaline batteries to lithium to lengthen battery life.


As a matter of practice, I only recommend that you seek service if the device becomes non-functional or when picture quality issues develop that can't be resolved by other means.  


I hope this helps.
