rechargeables ?

NI-MH ~Rechargeables, the higher the mAh the better 2900 is the highest but not common place 2700 more common.

I get all my AA and AAAs from here and use them in my high powered Camera Flash and Cameras and they last a helluva long time, I can really recommend them, they have a flea bay shop as well that sometimes has better deals and cheaper postage.

Digital Cameras are notorious for draining batteries, with the autofocus in use on every picture, image stability, flash and face detection, seriously stop wasting wedge on disposable cells and get some decent Rechargeables and a fast charger.

I've bought some these

Lithium Ion are the best, not sure if you can buy them as normal … Lithium Ion are the best, not sure if you can buy them as normal rechargables. I'm on 946 photos since I last charged my camera and at least half have had the flash on, still got two out of four bars left on my camera aswell.



lith ion are better and thats why most cameras use there own type of battery, unfortunately not available in AA form due to voltage output per AA battery.

I've ordered 2 so will have 8 batteries, hoping that will be enough. Going to try avoid using my mobile incase I lose it


To save power turn off the flash when not needed and also try to avoid deleting or reviewing the photos too often. Its the LCD display and the Flash that will eat your power.

Have a Nice time!
