rechargable AA batteries for digital cameras

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by william kossack, Jan 20, 2005.

  1. My daughter has a digital camera that uses AA batteries but it drains
    them really fast and we are tired of buying them.

    Can anyone recommend a brand of rechargable AA batteries?
    Concerns I have are
    cost of the battery and charger
    speed of the recharge cycle
    durability of the battery

    I realize that the operative word here is 'rechargeable, but have you tried
    the AA Lithium (L91) non-rechargeable cells? They seem to last forever, but
    are around $1 apiece. I've only seen them at Walmart in the Electronics
    department.

    The last set I bought for my previous camera were 2300mAh Uniross Ni-MHs
    that I bought in a local hardware store. Cheap but effective. (I now use
    them in various other devices that need AAs).

    I've been using Energizer 2300 mAh batteries that I got in sets of four for
    10 bucks at Target. I also got a Rayovac 1 hr charger from Target that
    works like a champ and came with a 12 volt car cord too.

    comparisons. My son bought the 830 Panasonic bundle from
    Costco and has had no problem so far.

    I've got one of those (and it seems to work great), but mine didn't come
    with a car cord. That could be pretty handy on a road trip.

    yeah .. I have an older maha charger(MH-C204F) and some powerex batteries
    ... 2 sets of 1500s and a new Christmas present of 2 sets of 2300's ......

    I use my camera every day for hobby shots and leave my camera in the cold
    car once in a while ...... I ran out of juice a couple times with the 2
    sets of 1500's ......... no way to run out now with 4 sets ..... I shot a
    good 60-70 with flash at Christmas dinner with folks passing around the
    camera to 'see' before having to change ........

    I can't really compare this to any other battery/charger setups because I
    haven't needed to change ......... but it's been fine

    IMO ..... Thomas-Distributing.com is a safe place to shop like the other
    poster said .. and a good deal.
