    A good story. Just remember that unlike alkaline or lithium batteries, rechargables (of all types) self-discharge over time (30-60 days). So if you use your camera infrequently for birthdays and Christmas, alkalines/lithiums may be a good solution.

    That said, I use rechargable AA's for both my older CP990 and my SB800 speedlight, and have found that the lower cost chargers (like those that come with batteries) generally don't fully charge the batteries. I use a MAHA 204 which does fully charge NiMH batteries, and I get appreciably longer service from my camera/flash.

    Just food for thought.
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...

    I was about to buy the MAHA 204, but was recommended by a friend to buy the MAHA 401.
