I downloaded the firmware update for my camera so that I could charge it. However, the battery is completely exhausted and won't turn on long enough for me to update it. Frustrated.

You will need to use a charger for charging your battery. If you don't have one and don't want to buy one you should be able to take your battery to a camera store and they should be able to charge your battery for you. They may charge you a small fee for this service but it will solve your problem. Another option that I recommend is using a universal charger for charging your battery. There are some really good ones out there. The ones we sell allow you to charger AA, AAA, Lithium-ion batteries, and all kinds of USB devices. This way when you travel you only take one charger for charging everything so that you don't leave your charger behind,

I hope this helps,

Hello, you can also connect whole cable of charger to battery, but , attention.. ! You must connect right polarity , + pole of charger to + pole of battery and - to -... After that , you must charning the battery like that about min 30 -45 min.. I think, that will be better, if you know someone who have mulitmeter for measuring voltage, cor correct finding where is + and - at the power charger cable. After 45 min you have charged battery and you can upgrade your firmare ;)
