    Default Best Rechargable Batteries for Wedding Shoot

    Hi Guys,

    I'm currently using Energizer Advance batteries for my flash which I have to replace every shoot. I find that it's not good for the enviroment and my pocket so I am wondering what you weddings gurus use for your shoot? Which brand is good and can fufill the requirements for a full day event? Thanks

    I have one set of sanyo eneloops and one set of powerex.
    Both last as long to me. They hold their charge very well too.

    Thanks Guys..

    I got myself 8 Powerex AA battery and a charger.
    Charged the batteries and tried it on my Sigma flash.. and suddenly my flash stopped working.. I thought it's fried..change to normal batteries.. on and off also doesn't work... but the next day, without doing anything my flash came back to life again.. very strange.
