[Batteries] AA Energizer Recharbable

Recommended Posts

Dallas    0

Anyone who owns a camera needs batteries. Most point and shoot cameras now a days use AA batteries. And they use them fast. Everyone nees a good set rechargables, and of course a charger.

I recommend Energizer rechargable batteries. They are NiMH (type of rechargable battery) and they are 2500mAh, some of the highest capacity batteries on the market now. You can get a set of 4, with a 4 hour charger, for under $20. It is WELL worth the investment. The charger charges them fully in about 4 hours, and has an auto cut-off. It also charges AAA, which is awsome.

I have filled my canon powershot's 128mb card (about 110 photos) up twice with these before they needed to be charged again. Now go out and buy some!

I completely agree with this advice. Even pin it to the top of the forum. I have a set of Energizer NiMH 2500mAh and a set of Mittoni(Generic) NiMH 2500mAh and this kind of battery is very good. It upsets me to think how many HUNDREDS of Alcalines my family wasted just to get about 15 shots over the years.

Is Sony's one hour charger any good?

4 hour charger? I have the same Energizer batteries, but with a 30-minute charger. Picked it up at Wal-Mart for $20, came with 4 batteries. Packs of 8 batteries cost $10 or so. Great batteries, I use them for everything I own now.

The quick charge batteries out now are awesome. There's actually a small chip in each battery to help regulate the charge cycle to make it as quick and efficient as possible.

I have a set of 2800mAh and a set of 2600mAh batteries. With the 2800mAh batteries I shot about 350 photos with my Canon PowerShot S2 IS on my holiday in China. The batteries were only empty for about 3/4th.... it was great because I never had to recharge or change the batteries.

There arn' actualy chips in the batteries, the charger monitors the voltage of each battery and makes changes acordingly

I get cheap 2500 MAH Batteries from Ebay.

Wana hear about the big Battery con? No well I'm gona paste it in anyway

"I bought some Energizer Rechargable C batteries for my cycle lights and they were crap, really crap they kept letting me down, I soon found out some facts.

C and D size batteries only tend to have a slightly better MaH (Milli-Amp-Hour) rating than AA batteries (Energiser AAAs are 750 MaH, AAs are 2100 MaH and C&Ds are only 2200 MaH) there Is a reason for this they are making them hollow! Pick a rechargeable up then pick a normal one up, notice the difference in weight.

I don't know why this is because since Ni-Mh came out rechargeable batteries have become really good, but they have a bad reputation and this is one of the reasons. Even Uniross the rechargeable specialists are doing it, I don?t know why but it really make the fact that the batteries are twice the size pointless as they are hollow.

I did manage to buy some ?industrial strength? 4500 MaH C batteries off the net and they are brilliant, they charged in my ordinary charger and didn?t let me down for weeks, in fact the first time they went I thought, Wow they lasted ages, and it turned out there was something wrong with my light, the batteries were still going.

So I thought I would let you all know about this, if any of you thought that Rechargeable were crap."uot;

From the specs, the Rayovas are awesome. Don't it charge in 15 minutes or something?
