Canon SD850 battery life

The SD850 has pretty good battery life - I took 327 shots on my first fully charged battery. The LCD was turned off for maybe a 3rd of those pictures, and the flash was almost never used, but I did review my pictures after taking them quite a bit.

Unfortunately, the camera doesn't have a battery charge meter, so the end of battery comes with little warning. Once the low-battery warning came on I got about 20 pictures before the camera turned off. It takes about 2 hours to charge the battery, which is done by taking the battery out and putting it into a relatively compact (slightly smaller than the camera) wall charger.
