    Does anyone recommend the POWEREX 2300mAH MAXIMUM LIFE Heavy Duty NiMH
    Rechargeable Batteries? I am new to AA rechargeable battteries and
    chargers. MY Kodak DC4800 used propietary batteries. I just purchased
    a FujiS7000. What is the difference between 2300 and 2400mAH? And
    which charger should I buy? Someone recommended I buy 12 batteries, so
    I would not be caught without a charged set. And should I purchase two
    chargers? I don't want to have to charge one set every 1-1/2 to 5

  2. I don't know where you live but Wal-Mart has Energizer 2300 mAh NiMHs at a
    very good price. The difference between 2300 and 2400 is about 4% and is
    not worth worrying about. My Energizers from Wal-Mart are working well for

    I use those PowerEx 2300 batteries and they are fine. 2400 vs. 2300 is
    pretty insignificant (I used 1600 mA-h cells before and they were plenty)

    You should have two sets -- assuming your camera is not real battery
    eater. Usually that means 8 batteries.

    One charger should be enough. I shoot 100-150 shots a day then put in
    the spare set in the evening and recharge the set I just used.

    Lots of chargers out there. I prefer the Maha 401. It charges each of
    up to 4 cells individually vs. in pairs and has a quickcharge mode if
    you need to do 8 in an evening

    I prefer the Rayovac 2000 mAh NiMH I-C3 batteries...they recharge in 15
    minutes in their special charger which ALSO recharges standard NiMH
    batteries at a slower rate AND can be gotten with a car adapter so you can
    recharge them in your car. I really cannot think of any reason to use
    anything else... (even the price is comparable to standard NiMH batteries
    and chargers and I got my car adapter for free during a promotion that was
    printed on the package)

  6. Just don't measure them by using metal, vernier calipers! :cool:
