Re: Can only Epson brand Ni-MH batteries be used?
I own a variety of NiMH batteries and chargers (both the fast (ie. like the Epson "3 hour") charger and slow or "trickle" overnight chargers for AA applications. As far as I can tell, all NiMH battaries, chargers and appliances (eg cameras) are interchangable. Just follow the Charger Manufacturer's instructions for how long to leave the batteries in the charger. The time required for full charging will be dependent on how much charge is left in the batteries, as well as on the rated capacity of the particular battery used (mAh or "milli amp hours").

NI-MH batteries a re very different than car batteries and even tho voltage may be similar, you risk destroying your battery, camera or worse, an explosion. Your batter may only need a limited amount of amperage to charge (likely not much more than 1500ma or 1.5 amp) a car battery charger may put out twice or even ten times that much - hence the explosion risk! Also these kind of chargers detect when your battery is full and will quit charging or switch to a maintenance mode. I'm afraid you're pretty much stuck with using the charger meant for it.
you cannot use any charger that is not used to charge ni-mh batteries car batteries charge at a rate of 5 amps minimum and if you do it will cause serious damage to the charger and batteries
if you want ideas , talk to a battery shop but unless it is designed to charge 14.4 volt ni-mh batteries-- forget it
I know you can get these on Ebay. Also most NI-MH 9 volt battery charges will charge this battery pack. You can use a 9 Volt Snap Battery Connector with Alligator Clips to bridge the connection between the battery pack and the NI-MH 9 volt batter charger. This is how I charge this battery pack now. You can probably get the 9 Volt Snap Battery Connector with Alligator Clips at a radio shack or on Amazon... as well as a NI-MH 9 volt battery charger.. don't hook up the leads backwards :)
The operating manual specifies to use only Ni-MH AAA batteries and warns to not use Alkaline/Manganese/Ni-Cd batteries. Panasonic web site lists replacement batteries at 19.95 for a pair.
Duracel Ni-MH AAA batteries will be fine.
Since the Kodak EasyShare Camera Dock 2 is no longer available, you can use a KODAK Ni-MH Rapid Battery Charger K4500-PC-C+1 instead.
Item number is 1717610.
You can also use any brand of battery or charger as long as it is Ni-MH.
