    2100 and 2300 is the rating of the battery in mAh.

    i'm using a A70 with sanyo 2100 nimh

    if A75 batt consumption is similar to A70

    then u don't really need to go for the highest rating [i.e. 2300] cos A70 batt. usage just lasts and lasts....

    but since u are using A75 which uses CF card and AA batt [both which can be used on DSLR/flash later]

    should get the best charger/batt that u can afford

    note also to check charging times carefully

    some quick charger timings advertised only refer to 2 AA batt, not 4 [read the fine print]

    How about the Sony ones? The charger comes with the discharge function which eliminates memory effect. Though, I do not using one, I think it is a pretty good function.

    ratings in mAh

    It means that the battery can last for an hour at that discharge rate. i.e 2100mAh means it will last 1 hour at a discharge rate of 2100mA. To know how long it will last, you'll have to know how much current your camera drains.

    Simple put it, the bigger the number, the longer your batteries will last. (or at least suppose to)

    NiMH batteries have no memory effects. You can charge them anytime u want and there is no need to discharge.
