Default Rechargeables for Fujifilm HS10

I just use akalines for now, but they run out with a full day of shooting.

What are some good batteries for the HS10 that are rechargeable?

I have used Sanyo Eneloops and they do "ok". I get better results with Energizer 2300 Mah rechargeables.

2300? Ok, I've seen 2800, but it wasn't such a well-known brand.

I am finding I get better results with Sanyo Eneloops vs 2800mha Mah rechargeables myself with my HS20. Yesterday I shot over 800 photos with the eneloops and there still going. Was covering a triatholon for 2 hours when a major propane leak came in requesting multi police, fire and rescue, evacuations ordered and rush off to that.......... My 2800Mah usually last 500 shots.

Eneloops only have 2000mAh - but they are they best you can get ...

Really? I just found Duracell Rechargeables with 2650 mAh, that is pretty good!

G'day Salty

My oldest set of AA rechargables is a 1300mAh set from the mid-1980s made for RadioShack/Tandy Electronics ... still going quite okay

Today I have 6-8 sets of 4-AAs for various cameras, tranny radios, torches, external flashguns etc etc
Most are from our aussie RadioShack-type places, tho the Eneloops are being trialled at the moment in the Pentax. I am also using a newish set of Duracell 1800mAh's - they seem okay

The brand I have had least success with & have dumped 2 sets of their batteries after 3 months of continued failures to perform were the Eveready Energisers ... and my experiences is a common one with my Aussie mates

Hope this helps
Regards, Phil

Just bought a set of 2000 mAh Duracells. Haven't had time to wear them down, but they seem to actually put out more power. I've noticed a brighter flash on the camera.

Duracell 2000 mAh "Stay Charged" or "Pre Charged" that are
made in Japan are re-badged Sanyo Eneloops.

Oh, so Ive heard that those were fine anyway. These seem to last much longer than regular batteries. Of course, an actual battery pack for this camera would have been much better.
