Dying Battery?

The batteries on my Nikon Coolpix P6000 have developed an annoying habit. They both die without warning. Up until last week the camera showed a “low battery” icon on its screen when the battery was about 75% discharged. then it shut down gracefully at maybe 1% charge with a message on the screen “The battery is exhausted”.

I guess the batteries have aged and they go to zero without enough time for the camera’s firmware to react.

I still get about 300 shots per battery. That’s with the LCD on all the time and the GPS active. So it is annoying and not disabling.

I wish Nikon put a battery status indicator on the display all the time – not only when the charge is depleted.
