Default Upgrade on battery......

Can you all recommend a brand of specific battery for a Canon Powershot HS330 ELPH.
Its a new camera and I doubt the stock battery it comes with will do.
Many battery brands etc out there. This camera takes the NB 4L.

Your thoughts are appreciated

G'day mate

This is the mob I use for my batteries ...

Their Fuji & Panasonic equivalents are just as good as the originals supplied with the camera - at 1/3 of the original makers prices

Ozzie, Thanks for your thoughts. Should I be looking for a battery with a higher mAh than that on Canons stock battery? Doesn't that give me longer time between recharges?

Battery mAh is much the same as litres / gallons of petrol ... the more in the tank, the further you can go

Also - bear in mind that -none- of the manufacturer Li Ion batteries equal a set of 4-AA Ni Mh rechargables in either mAh or bang-for-the-buck

Battery capacity is limited by the physical size, and you are unlikely to find a direct replacement with higher capacity than the OEM product. (some may say they are higher, but usually that is due to non-standard testing methods to make them appear better)
