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.
