    Default recommendations for batteries

    currently thinking to purchase another 4 - 8x AA rechargeable batteries for use with SB600, wondering any bros out here can advise me on wat brands and type to get? and if possible, where to get it cheap also

    thinking of 2500 for sanyo, but heard that recently there is a replacement issues, quite turn off at the sound of that...

    thanks to all in advanced~!

    powerex for me.. but if u're the kind that don't like to remember to charge ur batts i'd suggest the eneloops... sacrifice a little power for longer holding power..
    Canon EOS 30D w/ grip 580EX, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, EF-S 10-22mm

    dun mind the lost in that abit of power if it is stable, just last week, i charge my batt 3 days before use, and on that actual day, batt appears to be low, no idea why also, but can say sian 1/2...

    have to play with slower flash and need to waste more time in waiting for the recharge cycle... but just to check

    http://www.onlineshop.com.sg/index.p...155a423a0488bf

    is this online shop reliable? heard alot of ppl talking abt all these rechargeables batt stuff, currently have a set of sony, sanyo and fiamo batteries, have their charger too , but its the slow 8 hrs charge type, i think..

    would it be better if i were to get a new charger or can use back my old charger?
