All batteries eventually need to be replaced, but it is possible to prolong their lifespan; there are several ways to ensure your video camera batteries are effective for as long as possible. These include:
Don’t overcharge - this is an especially useful tip if you’re using an older device. Always follow the instructions that come with your battery and avoid charging it for too long, as this can harm battery performance.
Consider the weather - extreme temperatures can cause problems with battery performance, so bear this in mind if you’re planning to travel with your video camera.
Mark charged batteries - if you’ve got five identical spare batteries for your video camera, marking them with a piece of coloured tape is a good method of keeping track of which batteries are charged, and which are not.
Store your camera batteries safely - many professional photographers keep their batteries stored in plastic bags to keep them clean and dry. Video camera batteries should always be stored at room temperature.
Charge and discharge new batteries completely up to four times - practicing this with new batteries helps them to reach their maximum rated capacity.
Use your video camera batteries at least once every 2-3 weeks - it is not advisable to leave batteries idle for long periods of time.
