    Can anyone tell me if the Canon SD450 works with generic 4L batteries? I
    plugged the battery into my factory canon charger to charge the battery. I
    noticed that once I plug it in, the amber charging light comes one, then
    after a few seconds the green light (full charge) light comes on. Then all
    lights go out. Is this normal? I have no problems charging my original
    battery. When I plug it in amber light goes on till the battery is finished
    charging then switches to green. There is always a light on. Please let me
    know if this is normal. I've heard some cameras have a chip so generic
    batteries don't work. Thanks.

    I recently bought a couple of spare batteries for my SD 450 from , they seem to work just as the original did...
    amber, then green light on charger, light stays on. The camera is new and I
    haven't had a chance to work with both batteries long enough to make a
    comparison of number of shots etc. but the camera does function with the
    generic battery.
