    I have a powerhaus fast charger that has worked fine up until now, but either it
    or my C-750 Olympus seems to be malfunctioning. The batteries now discharge
    within minutes - in one case after taking just two flash photos. It has only
    been doing this since I bought an AC-adaptor for the C-750 that I use when
    downloading to the PC. The instructions say it's okay to use it without taking
    the batteries out, but I wonder if maybe that has something to do with it? Could
    the AC adaptor be draining the batteries? Or is it a fault with the camera? Or
    the charger? Or the batteries?

    For no good technical reason - I would never plug my camera in with
    batteries inside. Too many variables for my simple little mind to consider.

    For good batteries to discharge in minutes would require something to get very
    hot. Therefore you have duff or uncharged batteries as you don't mention
    anything hot.
