Tip & How-To about Cameras
The most common problem with batteries for cameras is the type and brand name that people use in them.
buying cheaper may save you money..but those batteries are cheaper for a reason. they commonly do not hold a strong enough charge to power a digital camera for very long or even at all.
this is called the mAH rating. (milliamp per hour)
look for batteries with at least a 2000 mAH rating.
DO NOT USE: alkaline- they drain fast
nickel cadmium rechargeable-tend to have a memory effect .
you can use the following:
lithium-expensive but work
Ni-MH nickel metal hydride rechargeable- last longer no memory effects best value and most ideal type for digital cameras.
lithium ion rechargeable - best batteries to use however they are the most expensive and harder to find.
