How many charge little more camera batteries last?   Random question yes, just looking around at a handful of batteries I have collected over the years. Some of them I have noticed don’t hold a charge nowhere near as long. Will these keep going and just die completely One day?

Time has little effect on electro-chemical compounds.
Number of charges and insulator quality are way more
consequent on the life span of cells/batteries.

It is possible to "reanimate" units by discharging them
at 0,4V and then recharging them normally. If that won't
work, sent to recycling.

A precise, or even approximative, number of recharge is
possible only after long and rigorous lab testings that no
maker gets in the trouble of putting their production thru.

Thanks for the response. If you look at my original question. You’ll see with the exception of a slight grammar issue I was asking number of charges.

If you look at my reply, 3rd paragraph, is an answer.

G'day James

fwiw ... back in 1986 I purchased my first set of Radioshack AA batteries and recharger for use in various appliances- and the last of those 4x AA batteries died about 4 yrs ago after hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of recharges

Insofar as Li-ion batteries, I have had some DOA with the camera, others that have died within the warranty period, and many that get recharged every second day ready for reuse

I have batteries that are 4 years old and still working fine.   No idea how long they will last.  But till they die, I'm going to keep using them.
