Hi I have been using the iPowerUS FC-301 and the 2100mAh NiMH batteries for 6 months now and I have been very happy with it. In fact, I have a posting that says I have taken 490 pictures on my Nikon 990 with a set of 2100mAh iPowerUS batteries. The combo kits comes with 8 2100 batteries with carrying cases, a real convenience.

Tinman,
Thanks for the input, glad to hear you're having good service with it. It's one of two that I'm considering.

Regards,

I just got that combo a few days days ago. I am very pleased with it so far. The quality of the product seems very good. Obviously, I haven't had it long enough to experiment with the longevity of the batteries yet. It took 3 hours to fully charge 4 of the 8 AA 2100mAh batteries that came with it. I've been using 2 of these batteries in my Minolta Dimage F100 for the past 2 days and they're still going on that initial charge. And from what I read the capacity of these batteries isn't fully reached until after the 3rd or 4th recharge.

Default Rayovac 1 hr. charger and 2100 mAh IpowerUS batteries

Anyone using these 2 together? I'm ordering the batteries and wonder how this charger does with them. Thanks.

I have both the Rayovac 1 hr. charger and 2100 mAh IpowerUS batteries. Work great! no difference in charge time at least as far as I can tell, ie they are always ready before the hour!

BTW the 2100 mAh IpowerUS batteries is slighly longer than most NiMh. Stuck them side by side for comparison, the IpowerUS is about a mm taller...

Thanks NHL. Has the extra mm caused you any problems getting them into the camera or charger? By the way, you were absolutely right about the Rayovac charger. I bought it mostly because of all your posts on it in this forum. It is so fast that it borders on the amazing. It never takes a full hour for my 1600 mAh batts. I love it. Thanks.
