Using AA Batteries
The capacity of AA batteries drops sharply at temperatures below 20 °C 
(68 °F) and varies with make and storage conditions; in some cases, 
batteries may cease to function before their expiry date. Some AA 
batteries can not be used; due to their performance characteristics and 
limited capacity, alkaline batteries have less capacity than some other 
types and should only be used if no alternative is available and then 
only at warmer temperatures. The camera shows the level of AA 
batteries as follows:
