View Full Version : rechargable batt's

I have a polaroid i733 and the AA batteries don't last very long. Can I use rechargables in this camera? Is there a rechargeble battery that I could use. Is one kind of rechargable better than another?

Any NiMH rechargeable batteries will work. Try to find ones rated 2500 mAH or higher, lots of brands out there. A set of 4 and a charger should set you back $25-30.

I just purchased these (http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16817355007)for my camera. Have read some good things about the charger.

Read about the charger here (http://www.imaging-resource.com/ACCS/C204W/C204WA.HTM).

If you use your camera frequently, consider the higher capacity NiMH rechargables. Sanyo and Powerex 2700 mAh cells get my recommendation in this category

If you use it for a few pictures now and then, and then put it up on a shelf for a week or 2 at a time, consider the new Eneloop cells. The eneloop cells have a lower capacity, but a much higher self-discharge rate than standard NiMH cells. I've recently replaced my 2700 mAh cells with Eneloops in my digital camera, and thus far I'm very pleased with the results.

Now, if I'm going on a trip and will be taking lots of pictures on a daily basis, I would use my 2700 mAh cells, as the runtime is longer. But, for genreal use, I'm going to stick with the Eneloops. You can charge the Eneloops in just about any NiMH charger.
