Thread: New rechargeable batteries or new camera with lithium battery?

  1. #1

    Question New rechargeable batteries or new camera with lithium battery?

    I'm currently using an old PnS that uses 2 x AA-sized batteries, and I have been using 2500mAh rechargeable NiMH batteries.

    I have been using the batteries for a couple of years already and I notice that fully-charged 2 x 2500mAh batteries only give me about 30 to 40 shots before draining completely. I wonder if this is normal and expected for rechargeable batteries or this is due to the batteries degrading over time due to wear-and-tear?

    I now have 2 options:
    1. buy new Eneloop rechargeable batteries that should retain charges better
    2. buy a new camera that uses built-in lithium batteries for longer lasting battery life between requiring recharging


    Any advice?

    I've the same problem with my Sony H5 when I use it with flash

    This is what you can do:

    1. Get 2700mAh rechargeable batteries

    2. Charge the batteries the night before because they loose their charge very quickly

    3. Get 1 spare set as backup

    Note: the Eneloop is only 2000mAh
