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 the Nikon Coolpix 4100 and the Pentax Optio S40, we used our pair of NiMH Power2000 2500mAh batteries. For the other cameras, we used the included battery packs. All batteries were fully drained before charging for the test.
|Number of shots taken in one battery charge|
In our battery test, the Nikon 4100 puts in a very respectable performance - shooting 1,315 frames on a single charge. We highly recommend getting some high-powered NiMH batteries. They put in a far superior performance to alkaline batteries and are much more cost effective.
