Pentax KX battery depletion fix

Oh what a pain this is for us KX people. When I finally clicked it wasn't my battery collection, that, yes, I had recharged them, even the spares, I looked on the forums and found I wasn't alone. What has solved this for me (so lovely to see that cheerful green light reappear consistently) was the firmware update to version 1.3 and Sanyo eneloops batteries. I thank all forum posters for good advice!

I finally settled on using 3 sets of LiFePO4 batteries:

They work when I want them and don't have to worry about discharged batteries after leaving them for a long time.

I have the same issue with my K100D and K200D. I have a large collection of the Amazon Basics rechargeable batteries that I use in my cameras and flashes and they never work right in either the K200 or K100. Eneloops seem to be the only rechargeable batteries that work in these cameras. I have a set in the K200 right now and I just put a set of regular alkalines in the K100 when I use it.

That's silly. I spent last night trying to figure out how to use eneloops in my KX. No luck!
