Best AA/AAA rechargeable batteries for digicam?

Found 3rd May 2010
Looking for suggestions as to which ones to buy. Main use is for digicam, but for general use as well.

Will need a good charger for it as well.

Ideally want best value (ie. cheap, and still good)

I've seen posts about eneloop etc. So I just wanted to hear what you guys thought.

Last month I bought a fast charger from the 7 day shop and got a good deal on duracel rechargeable batteries at the same time. I think it cost me about £23 quid for the charger and 8 batteries.

7 day shop

eneloops/infinium or the 7 days shop ones are very good

I have some of each very good, as for charger

i have that one, its very good, turns off when charged, batteries dont get warm, but takes about 3-4 hours

I rate these as good as eneloops etc, at near half price, you wont be dissapointed

hi sanyo eneloops ]http//ww…241are the battery of choice for most. 7day shop do their own version of "ready charged" eneloop type batteries that maintain their charge for longer periods. ]http//ww…341

Thanks guys for the suggestions/post.

I already have a "Radio Shack" NiMH pulse-charger. It doesn't say the suggested mAh batteries... I've had it for a while now. I also have a "Vanson" fast NiMH charger. And I have an "Energizer" NiMH charger.

If I get the "Ready To Go" batteries, do you think I will need a new charger? If not, which of the above would be best suited?

Thanks guys.

I would suggest a new charger, i have no idea if the ones you have detect charge(continuous charge) , or do the cheaper timed charge, they either over charge and over heat the batteries, or dont fully charge or tell you anything. and you cant leave fully unnatended

I myself have had a few chargers knocking around, and it was a good decision to get something better, as im sure it wont cook the batteries now

I also recommend a slow-ish charger rather than fast charging, sucj as the one i linked to
