Perhaps it would be possible to include a script to disable battery compatibility checks or set them however the user likes. Does chdk support the idea of a script executed at startup like a users profile?
I'm not inclined to add any code to specifically defeat the battery check.
Ok a script not hosted on any chdk site.
I own nine different Powershots - six of which use Canon proprietary batteries (i.e. not standard AA cells). I have one genuine Canon battery for each and many low cost 3rd party batteries as well. All the Canon batteries still function properly, although the oldest have somewhat diminished capacity of course. Of the 3rd party batteries (i have several per camera and many different "brands") more than half have swollen up enough that they don't fit into their camera very well, and about 20% will no longer charge.
It's interesting that camera is collecting information about batteries usage(G7X too) and maybe sends it to somewhere...
Note:- The LP-E17 Battery might also contain a microprocessor. !!! ...Latest usage history of Non-Canon Battery 0011FDE0 Whether any non-Canon battery was used 0011FE14
But what is the camera doing with a cheap plastic DC coupler?As I know these couplers have no electronics inside…
In this case battery icon is not displayed and battery temperature is not measured
But in future I'm expecting new DC couplers with a chip. This corresponds to chosen marketing policy.
When yes => how the cam knows, that is a DC coupler?
But not actually for the M3 or G7x …
