    Any batteries (alkaline, NiMH) will do for me... I'm just a casual hobbyist, not a pro...

    I've been using Sanyo 2100 for almost 4years. I have 10 pieces of those. Recently added PowerEx 2500 to the inventory. these PowerEx can go for about 300 shots on my 580EX. The old Sanyos about 200 shots. Can't say which brand is better cos they are different age and power.

    But my Sanyos are gonna die soon. I have at most recharged them 50 times.

    I use regular alkaline batteries... Don't find it cost-efficient to use rechargables, since I'm a casual user.

    It's really cost-efficient even for casual user. The $ save, the better performance; in more no. of shots & shorter recycling time, and save the earth.

    Been using GP 2700s. So far so good. But can't hold charge well.

    is it true that if you do not use rechargable batts for very long, the max capacity will drop?
    for example, a 2700mah, will drop to say 2300mah after sometime.
    Of course it will drop when you use too, but that is ok because you are getting some use from it.
