Recommended Rechargeable Batteries
Supplied batteries with my Fuji s8000fd nearly dead, so thought it was wise to buy some rechargeable ones with a charger. Anyone know which is best? Assume Energizer or Duracell with a high a mAH rating as possible (2500+). Best place to buy from?..

Uniross Hybrio..

These are rechargeable, but don't lose their charge when stored, unlike normal NiMH. Even when the mAh rating appears slightly lower, they can still give excellent results..

I got mine from Wilko, though I use a good quality charger from Maplin electronics.Regards,Peter..

You have a choice between the nimh type and the low selfdischarge type. the nimh are available to about 2700-2800mah while the lowselfdischarge type are topping out at 2100mah. the nimh are stronger but only if you use them right after a charge if they sit a week and you pickup the camera to shoot you may not have enough power left to take a picture. the lowSD type retain 85% of their power for 1yr after charge..

I have been using nimh 2700mah powerex from maha, just switched to imedion from maha which are lowSD of 2100mah also from maha. I bought my imedions from thomas distributing. maha also says that their imedions can be charged by any charger maha makes. I bought 4 sets of imedions...

I like my duracell HR6...those pre-charged ones. Only rated at 1500ma but they last longer for me than my other 2800 ma ones. I don't do many pictures, but pick up the camers and turn it on most every day...Havn't had to re-charge for a month now. Walgreens...

They are both NiMh but one is low discharge..

There are many makes now available (but probably only a handful of mfrs. Sanyo Eneloops were the first..

They still hold about 75% of their charge after one year of storage..

I've been using both Energizer and Duracell 2500mAH batteries, and I've been terribly disappointed, especially with the Energizers. I found they both self-discharged within days. It's not a big deal if you can charge the batteries nightly. But when travelling for days without access to battery charging, they're a pain..

I highly recommend the Sanyo Eneloop batteries, which are low discharge batteries. They are supposed to maintain 80% of their charge after 1 year. I haven't tested this claim, but I've been able to keep batteries in my camera for weeks without self-discharging. They're only rated at 2000mAH, but they tend to last much longer than my 2500mAH batteries when usage is spread out over a period of a week or so...

The Eneloops are a little difficult to find and tend to be a little pricey. Rayovac Hybrids are getting difficult to find right now..

Right now a similar low-discharge version is "Kodak Pre-Charged" which could be the easiest to find at retail. But, be very careful to find "Pre-Charged" on the package and the battery itself...

Someone mentioned Uniross Hybrio, which I believe is what the Sanyo Eneloops are sold as in the UK.JonGive me something to shoot..
