AA Batteries

I had a Fuji 602z camera which seemed to eat AA batteries, I still use it occasionally and was wondering if any one has tried those Sanyo Eneloop batteries, they are supposed to be the cats whisker. I first heard about them a couple of years ago yet have never seen them for sale in the shops, I would be interested in your views.

Re: AA Batteries

Fuji S602z?
My first digi - still have it but don't use it any more

Sanyo Eneloops?
Though I use the generic "Good to Go" which are the same technology: NiMH batteries that retain their charge over time. I find them very good but prefer "normal" rechargeables for often-used kit as they have a higher charge and are cheaper

Re: AA Batteries

Me too! I'd rather carry some conventional rechargeable spares. I currently use 2800 and 3000mah AAs and find that they retain their charge while waiting to be used quite well.

Completely agree but it's incredible how the eneloop type technology holds it charge. In torches and less often used flashes I have had them go a couple of years and still have plenty of juice left.

Re: AA Batteries

Yup! I use them in my remote flash triggers (AAAs) and flashes (AAs) which I use only occasionally. Cameras and torches, I use old-style NiMHs (but have some Lithiums, not Li-ion, as backup for camera - best lightweight, high power, long lasting batteries you can get!)
