Please help me choose wisely. I'm looking for NiMH batteries + charger for Canon S1 IS which I'm about to buy very soon.

Please do recommend me which brands should buy and also any online shops with decent prices.

Thansk a lot fellows!

You have about 3 choices for chargers that charge the batteries really well: the Maha C204W(which I have), the Maha C401FS and the Lightning Pack 4000N.

As for the batteries, well I'd say Powerex but I am sure someone will complain that they are only up to 2300mAh, yes its true Maha is taking some time to release its higher mAh rated batteries.

Anyway, as I said I have the Maha C204W charger as well as Powerex 2300mAh batteries and it works very well in my Canon A95.

I am unsure of where you live, if you live in Canada I can suggest you a place to buy, otherwise I do not know, u can check with the review sites, they have some links to battery sellers I think.

I don't know if Maha chargers are available here in Europe. I use Lenmar Mach1 gamma as my portable charger and love it. Charges quickly and keeps cells cool.
