So having not checked my batteries much (I use them until close to discharged, then charge them) I decided to take a look...

One in the camera NOW has a decent charge left on it but the recharge quality (?) shows only one red bar. Another shows two green bars...

I take it I'm about due for replacements? I don't know for certain how old they are, but about 3 years this fall I think...

only time I get concerned about 1 bar rating is in the extreme cold of winter- then I get "reasonable" use from them..600 shots appx ?

I agree with Craig. I have a couple of one red bar batteries - in the cooler fall or winter weather they die quick, but in the summer I get pretty much normal life from them.
I don't depend on one red bar batteries if the picture taking is important or I don't cart along an extra in my pocket.

I mark the less ideal batteries with my labeller.

i just finished shooting a hockey game with the Red Bar battery, about 210 shots according to the screen...

biggest issue is my Pixel battery grip (Vertax?) drains the battery regardless of any On/Off switch setting on the camera or grip. i have to pull the tray and while im certain ill be okay for the near future, i was curious about when things need swapped out...

thanks guys. ill keep shooting with it until it's done. i usually have a pair of extra batteries minimum..
