What battteries do I use for my camera?
I researched the subject of camera batteries and found a great product. I use Imedion rechargable AA batteries by Powerex. These batteries work fantastic. The batteries I have are 2100 Mah, but Powerex has a 2700 mAh battery that is a little more expensive. I purchased a couple sets and Powerex Charger by MAHA. The battery charger is what makes the difference in holding the battery charge.
I used to have problems with my camera running out of battery power within one day. Now I carry my spare batteries in my camera case, but I usually don't even need the spare. No more frustration with low battery power. I highly recommend this rechargable battery and battery charger.
