Newbie question about rechargeable batteries
Hi all!

I just bought a Canon A70 and i'm completelly illiterate on this batterie thing, specially the rechargeable ones.

What should i know about it before going out to purchase my charger and rechargeable set????

I already did some research and where i'm located (Brazil), i can only find an Eveready (holds 2AA batteries) and a Panasonic charger (holds 4 AA and 4 AAA batteries), and 1600mAh batteries at most (1400 are more common).

Any input ????

thanks a lot in advance!!!

Buy the most powerful batteries in one word, it means long autonomy . But you can also judge on the $ per mAh factor .
For the charger, itís up to your habit of use to choose a rapid, or a slow charger.
Also take a look at older post in this forum, there are many post and information about this.
