Has anyone measured the Kx current draw? It would be easy to test our batteries under a similar load and compute the cells' internal resistance....

I've got K-x nearly for two years. At the beginning I had similar battery problems. Camera was stopping down displaying "batteries depleted" after about 20 to 30 shots with fully recharged batteries. I've updated firmware (now version 1.02) and replaced my batteries with rechargeable Energizer (AA 2300 mAh), .. no more problem ever since.

Have been having battery problems so I have just upgraded the firmware to Pentax kx_e103w

Kodak Xtralife Alkaline batteries work fine. I used them for the firmware upgrade. They show full with a green battery signal.

I have been happily using two sets of cheap Activ Energy NiMH 2300 bought in Aldi 2 1/2 years ago and one set showed empty on red and the other set did not even show anything.

OK I switched the setting to NiMH from Auto-select and hey both sets show half full Orange battery settings.

So best avoid auto-settings and select the setting for the battery concerned.
