Canon A95 Batteries
I just received my new A95 and looked at the specifications for batteries. It says if I want to use rechargables I should use Nimh 2300 MAh batteries. I have a dozen Panasonic Nimh 2100 MAh batteries and I wonder if using them will cause a problem. I could guess that they might not last as long, but will they cause a problem for the camera?..

No worries, they might last a little less longer, but you miht not even notice the difference. All that Canon says is that the optimal durability is with 2300mah, but then again I wonder if they say that because it was the best batteries on the market at the time...

Hi there !.

No worries at all indeed: Use your older batteries as much as I do. On the other hand, please note that nowadays exist already rechargeable batteries with 3600 mAh capacity, if you ever should worry about extreme autonomy (mountainclimbing for several days, or other excursions like that).

Enjoy your A95, this concept of camera will let you free of battery grief !..

If I am not mistaken, the current maximum is 2500 mah, but I could very be off by 100 mah, so I'd presume when you said 3600, you actually meant 2600...

No, my friend,.

I really bought two weeks ago 4 apparently original 3600 mAh NiMH SONY batteries (made in Japan) in a (original, I suppose) SONY blisterpack with explanations and "made in Japan" print and life comparison chart. Their appearance is very similar to the 2100 mAh SONY batteries which I also use, only the color label on the batteries themselves is more red-orange than yellow-orange of their siblings. I use them since then and never had to re-charge them until day.....

Wow, I have never heard of that before, that is indeed a big jump in technology to produce such a high capacity battery 3600mah have gone window shopping for many months now and have been to many malls and shops but I have never seen a 3600mah battery, I only saw 2300mah anyway, if what you say is true then buying a camera that is powered by AA batteries is the best thing that can happen to you... because I presume the batteries would last longer than proprietary Li-ion batteries used by many leading cameras/..

Ya perhaps, but I persist to believe that our friend is wrong otherwise 3600mAh AA batteries would be available somewhere.....

Meanwhile, although the blister pack as well as the batteries themselves are *VERY* well done, I found out through a comment by another site that there is a vast number of falsified batteries in South America, especially making use of the SONY brand, whereof I also must be a victim. I know that the Electronics' Manufacturers in Japan sometimes launch experimental stuff in the Japanese market, and this was the reason why I believed the product could possibly be true.

The so-called "3600 mAh" batteries are not bad, they at least lasted as lomg as the 2100 mAh ones I also own, but if you check in the official SONY site you can see that there is no such product made by SONY.

The further comments I read (but about these I really don't know if they are true) are that there is no original blister pack from SONY with 4 rechargeable batteries, only with 2 per pack. If anybody can tell more about this, I'd be happy to know.

So Brandy, about the 3600 mAh capacity you are right, the technology unfortunately hasn't reached yet this state of the art.

At last an interesting experience.....
