Battery PerformanceOur general method for battery testing is to reset the camera to its default settings and change the recording mode to the highest quality option. Then, we take 5 pictures without the flash and 2 pictures with the flash until the battery is dead. For more information on our battery test, please refer to our Testing Procedures page. For this test, we used the included Li-30B Lithium-Ion Rechargeable battery. The battery was fully drained before charging for the test.

In our battery test, the Stylus Verve did not perform very well. Although this does not really come as a shock, considering the small 3.6V 645mAh LI-30B rechargeable battery, it is still below average for an ultra-compact camera. In short, we would expect the Verve to hold up pretty well through a day of heavy shooting, but don't expect it to last over a weekend. Prices for a spare LI-30B start at $30.
