Can I use non-Oly batteries for the Oly charger? If yes, which brand of batteries is the best, in terms of battery life?

www.imaging-resource.com has an article. seems that GP1800mAH batteries are not bad. You can get 2 for ~$9 at Mustafa. Elsewhere it's at least 50% more expensive.

Someone managed to get Sanyo 1700mAH batteries for $3 a piece at Alan Photo. If you can get them at this price, it's a great bargain.

Tried what? I've charged Sanyo 1600mAH, Sony 1600mAH, Mitsubishi 1600mAH, GP 1300mAH, GP 1600mAH NiMH batteries with an Oly charger. No problems.

I believe the Oly charger can charge any NiMH batteries cos there's an "intelligent" circuit built-in to prevent over charging.

Hi sneezybum, Oly charger can charge any brand. Can charge GP batteries also but it get a bit hotter than other brand and nothing to be alarm. Don't worry be happy!;)

GP Charger for NiMH battery can charge all NiMH battery.

But GP NiCd Charger can only charge similar type of NiCd battery.

Just use Rayovac. Its worth it. The charger costs $79. It charges 1600maH batteries in 1hour. I charge my four sets of batteries in 4hours instead of 4 days. It charges any brand NimH and NiCad batteries. Rayovac batteries can be recharged 1000 times and has no memory problem. The Rayovac charger charges each battery separately. So I can put 4 different brand batteries together. Also I can put batteries with different charges. Once the battery is fully charged, its corresponding LED display will go off. With this charger you can go for a trip and not worry at all about power requirements. I can take shots everyday with my four sets of batteries. I just need an hour per set.

Forget GP. Forget Sony. Get Rayovac! Charges both AA, AAA and 9volt.

if I am not wrong, the Rayonac charger comes with a transformer that looks like it weigh a ton. That was what put me off when I last saw it at carrefour before CNY. Imagine having to lug that thing along during a trip......even bigger than most laptop charger.
