Battery waring already at 70% with AB Hytron 50

Another odd thing: putting on one of our fully charged Hytron 50 gets the 500 to start warning for low battery already at 70%. Is this normal when using the AB batteries in the beginning? The batteries are previously used on a Sony PVV-537P.

The camera is set for Hytron50 / Auto.

You can manually change the low battery indication in your settings.

OK. I'll have to do some testing then, to find out which voltage that match the battery. I assumed the presets were designed for the specific battery type voltage, but obviously not? :-)

My Hytron 50's have worked fine with light use for about a year, but just the other day I stuck one on and got a battery warning and then power down... at a viewfinder-displayed 80% capacity. The window on the battery itself showed nearly full, and this battery had been fully charged the previous day, used very little, and removed from the camera overnight.

I triple checked it and could not figure what the issue was. Another partially used (50% or so) battery was connected and worked just fine. Never did figure it out, but it's awful scary to think I could get to a job and have a full battery refused by the camera.

I suppose perhaps I should look into setting things manually as well.
