Default nexcell 1800 batteries

I recently bought a Minolta F 300. The charger and batteries that came with it are fine,but, I had a Nexcell 20FC charger with 4 1800 batteries, and wanted to use them too. They will not power my camera. They work in my mp3 player and remotes, but not my camera. I ordered a Maha c204 with 4 2000bh batteries. Will this work with my camera? Thanks. I am a newbie to digital, an oldie to photography. lol

Don't know why the Nexcell 1800's are not working, unless they were put in wrong.
And yes, the Maha's batteries and charger should work with no problems. The more you charge them the longer lasting they wil become (they need to get up to snuff with about 3 to 5 charges). And you do not need to drain all the way down before charging (nicd's need that not nimh's).

Enjoy Your Camera,
Steven

Some batteries require to be charged 2-3 times before they start to accept their full charge. I doubt that is the problem here, because they should still work (just not that well.) But I thought I'd mention it.
