Nikon L24 Battery Life

First published on: Monday, 7 March 2011

The following Nikon L24 battery life numbers (how many photos can be taken before the battery power runs out) is extracted from the Nikon L24 Manual and the Nikon L24 Specifications page.

Three different power supply conditions are tested:

  1. Two fully-charged Nikon EN-MH2 rechargeable Ni-MH batteries.

  2. Two AA-sized lithium batteries.

  3. Two AA-sized alkaline batteries.

The manual gives the following explanations on how battery life testing is conducted:

  1. Unless otherwise stated, all figures are basically for a camera with fully-charged EN-MH2 batteries operated at an ambient temperature of 25 °C (77 °F).

  2. Based on Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards (see the section titled “Standard Procedure for Measuring Digital Still Camera Battery Consumption” for more information) for measuring the life of camera batteries. Measured at 23 (±2)°C (73 (±4)°F); zoom adjusted with each shot, flash fired with every other shot, image mode set to 4320×3240. Battery life may vary depending on shooting interval and length of time menus and images are displayed. Supplied batteries are for trial use only.

Approximate number of still pictures:

  1. When using EN-MH2 batteries — 450 shots.

  2. When using AA lithium batteries — 700 shots.

  3. When using AA alkaline batteries — 220 shots.

Approximate movie shooting duration / time / interval:

  1. When using EN-MH2 batteries — 3 hours 50 minutes (TV movie 640).

  2. When using AA lithium batteries — 6 hours 5 minutes (TV movie 640).

  3. When using AA alkaline batteries — 2 hours 5 minutes (TV movie 640).

Refer to page 25 of the L24 Manual for precautions regarding batteries and references to additional pages for more information. One notable point is that old and new batteries or batteries of different makes or types should not be combined.
