My Canon lithium ion battery recharges OK but dies after 3 or 4 shots and has to be recharged.
Q. Can a digital battery be rejuvinated by an expert ? If so is it cost effective or is it cheaper to buy a replacement?
If it is worthwhile does the repaired battery last as long as a new one and if the answer is yes can anyone tell me what firm in Auckland or pref the Nth Shoredoes this kind of job

Google is good. Try here, where it says you can't recondition Li-Ion btys.

You'd be best off buying a replacement - Li-Ion batteries have a certain lifespan, after which they are virtually irrepairable.

Hey there, if you have just bought the batteries, I suggest you return it to the retailer and demand a full refund or equivalent replacement. Otherwise, I propose that you invest in new batteries.

Cheers :)

Thank you all for your replies. Looks like a new battery is the answer.Linw - I found the article you provided most interesting. Thanks a lot for that.
