Wondering how long the above could last interms of no of frames/shots. I've been using Eveready ones and its like very short. Cannot get to fill up my 1 Gb card, half way and the low battery signs are thers. Funny thing is that after removing the battery pack and resinserting it again, back to full! Is there a problem in the camera like what I read another forum?
Does leaving the batteries in the cam for a few day add up to the drain? I miss the long lasting power of the D100 and its battery pack!!!

sorry la bro, i totally gif up on Sanyo. can never get over the problem. it was a huge and low class joke back then! hehehe

ok, if anything will let u know. currently considering my options. am using the konnoc too. so far so good but on first charge, the plastic wrapper that is the cover of the batteries, came off due to hi-temp emitted from the charging. kinda disappointed. but the performance is good. so far...

no need la.. its EastGear by the way. have pretty good dealins with them in the past. such a small and perhaps isolated incident is ok, as long as the batteries are not like Sanyo's~!:bsmilie:

cheers!

Bought a new set of Sanyo 2500s and charged them. Left them in my battery pack for days and used them last night. After 400 shots, battery still strong. And its still running. However I still ordered some powerex 2500s from Khoking's site. Never bad to have more in your hands...

hopefully sanyo has sorted out their batt problems. read in other forums that there isn't much discharging problems in their batches. i wonder y so?

PowerEx is good! :thumbsup:

Hm.. really that good for PowerEx?

I always thought that by using ur Batt until it fully dried up then decharge and recharge will help to prolong the batt life??? hmm..

But really is that after charging the Sanyo batt, it went low quite fast.. hmm...

Actaully I still miss the rechargeable batt then using AA batt. hehe
