Thread: BG-E2N and Rechargeable batteries

    Default BG-E2N and Rechargeable batteries

    Hi all,

    the instruction slip of the battery grip says alkaline AA batteries can be used with it. I was wondering if rechargeables can be used? I've got a couple of Sony rechargeable Ni-MH batt at 2100mAh. Thanks for your help.

    Can anyone help? Afraid of frying the camera circuits. Pardon my paranoia, but I've had bad experiences with rechargeables.

    Cool. Thank you for your reply, diver-holc. May I know what's the amperage rating of your Eneloop batteries?

    1.2v is general standard for rechargeables with 1.5v standard for single use AA batteries. Eneloops are generally 2000mah which is average but batteries of this class which include Recyko and such can retain their charge much longer compared to higher capacity rechargeables.

    Which is why I have 4 set of 4x AA battries and 1 set of 4x AAA batteries... all are Eneloops

    Ok. Thanks a lot. I guess its safe to use my 2100mAh batteries in the battery grip.
