    Default Rechargeable Problems

    Hi,

    i m using 3 sets of 4 batts each
    4 x sony 2300
    4 x sony 2300
    4 x snayo 2300

    and i use a NEXcell Smart 2Amp Charger

    Everytime i charge my batts, i discharge first then let it auto charge up. BUT it seems the lifespan of my batts are not consistent. sometimes after a few shots(using A80) the low batt sign comes out. but sometimes i can shoot for a whole event! i mean i m comparing at the same event lah.

    And this happens randomly(meaning all the sets have this problem before)

    and when i recharge the batts after the shoot, some take much longer than the others to discharge.

    Is this Normal?
    or that my charger is faulty?
    and i have to splash another $50 on a sanyo one?!
    cos this NEXcell one was recommended by the EastGear guy(dunno who though)

    pls share ur experiences with rechargeables, thanx!

    Have u use ur batts and charger for quite some time liao?...It seem to be the charger prob....all 3 sets of batts spoil at same time is quite a small possibility..
    but b4 u hastily go buy a new charger, u might wan to try using ur batts in some other devices (eg. CD player) and see whether u will have the same prob.....it may be becoz of the cam as well....

    Hope it help...

    Your charger can charge up to 2000mah per hour? Maybe it charges too fast the batery cannot take it gone case.
