The camera is fujifilm.
The duracells are poor power wise, they last a little longer but was looking more for proper heavy duty camera batteries, such as lithium batteries

Its AA batteries aswell x4. The camera is a big, almost proffessional camera, so it really needs more juice than normal batteries

Thanks for the help

I have a HS10 Fuji and use the 7dayshop eneloop type rechargeables, about £4 for 4. They last for a fairly long time a do not lose there charge when not in use, would recommend them to anyone.

Buy Sanyo Eneloop Rechargeables, they will last for ages, they do not lose their charge when not being used.

Duracell dont even last an hour in mine, would go for some good rechargeable batteries or energizer ultimate lithium ones, got 4 from argos for £8 and i've used my camera on several days out and am still on the first 2.

Can you buy AA size LI-POLY or LI-ION batteryies?



I take it that means the compound of the battery, with lithium ?
pressume i we could get some would that compound allow them to last longer ?
