Average Li-Ion/NiMH Lifetime?
Can anyone tell me what to expect as far as average lifetimes of Lithium Ions (point-and-shoot ones) vs. NiMH? (in other words, how long they can be used before they won't recharge anymore)
I know every battery is different, but is there a rough expected lifetime? For example, is the average Li-Ion expected to last several years? And how does NiMH compare in regard to average lifetime?
PS: again, I know very well that each battery is different, but what would you expect an average battery to last if your life depended on spitting out a number? I'm just trying to figure out what to expect from lifetimes between the two batteries.
