DN 60 almost always thinks batteries are almost flat

Hi. I am using 4 2700 standard rechargeable batteries. When I turn unit on is says I have over 80 hours left on batteries but after about 20 minutes filming the battery starts flashing to indicate low battery and the red LED flashes. It still says there are 80 mins left on the battery. I filmed over 1.5 hours with it over around 4 hours and it managed to make the media files fine so I guess there is still quite a lot of power left.

This is causing me real problems as I cant be confident if I am recording properly as the record LED is always flashing. I cant see the screen as I am shooting in dark clubs and anyway I need to be able to quickly glance at the unit to check it is working.

Any Ideas?
Ben

Have you set the correct battery type in the system menu?
