    I just realised, you have a 10D, so you can't use AA's anyway.
    If you'd really like to find out for yourself, use the schools Olympus
    as a test with both alkaline and rechargeable.

    Righto, anyway using normal alkaline energizers in my S2 and it lasted for
    bugger all.

    Using rechargeable 2000mah nimh's from jaycar and it lasts for *ages*.

    I've always wondered what the likes of normal Energizer were in mAh rating,

    I honestly was guessing them at about 1800mAh, as I know the Arlec NiCad
    elcrapo rechargables are about 600-700mAh and Energizers do last much longer
    than even a new set of NiCads.

    Alkaline have high current capabilities though (more than any rechargeable),
    their problem is that their voltage drops with capacity and load (and of
    course they are single use). Most rechargeable hold their original voltage
    for much longer, then the arse drops out of them.

    PS: Those Olympus are no where near worth $40. Olympus may charge a lot
    for their batteries (my 5050 came with 4x1600mAh), but just drop into
    Bunning's (the one on Old Geelong Road for you Tony) and you'll see sets of
    4 Energizer branded NiMH 2100mAh (or more) for about $22 in their battery
