Re: Good Rechargeable batteries-update
I know this is a very old post but thought it a good idea to update since there are now some better batteries available.
I was prompted to look around after buying a Fujifilm camera which uses AA batteries. I was very disappointed when I discovered that the camera could get through a normal 'budget' battery within minutes. I then tried some rechargeable Energizers which worked slightly better but didn't last very long.
Eventually, I was put onto the Sony Eneloop batteries and was amazed that my camera is now useable and lasted a few days without a recharge.
The Eneloop batteries are the ONLY ones able to keep my Flip Ultra HD Cam going for the full two hours capacity.
They are widely available and I got mine on eBay.
If you never make mistakes, you ain't trying..
