    New NiMH Batteries: Reaching Full Capacity

    I've read that new NiMH batteries need to by cycled a few times before they will reach their full capacity. Out of the box, is it OK to manually cycle them a few times by charging them, then draining them with my charger's conditioning feature (MH-C204F)? Or, is it best to cycle them through actual device use? Any difference?

    Drain them in the camera. It will force you to take more pictures, and that's never a bad thing.

    Either way should be ok for the batteries.
