Vivitar products are and have always been known for poor build quality
25 February 2015
Summary: Vivitar products are and have always been known for poor build quality. When I bought this camera I was not expecting much, however I was expecting it to work. I tried to charge the built in battery and it would not take a charge.
Summary: The product has some Lithium Ion battery issues, it wouldn't power up. I called the customer care and they asked me to ship it to New Jersey, and that to replace it, it would take another 3 weeks or so. As I was on a time constraint, I thought it would be best if I could just buy another one.
