The M380 has ~32MB of internal memory and a memory card slot capable of using SD/SDHC memory cards. Images, movies and sound recordings can be copied from internal memory to SD card or vice-versa. Shown here is an OCZ, 4GB class 6 SDHC card.

The M380 is powered by a 3.7v 1050mAh Kodak Li-Ion rechargeable digital camera battery (KLIC-7003), that is charged in-camera when using the USB cable. You can use the included AC adapter or simply plug the camera into a USB port on your PC; charging using a PC's USB port will take much longer than using the included AC adapter. Kodak claims you can capture 310 pictures per charge, using CIPA Standard testing methods.
