Default Battery Pack NB-1LH life: how many years?

Hi,

Yes I know that you can recharge Battery Pack NB-1LH
about 300 times, but...
how many Years is average life of this battery? (average naturally)

if you are an old nb-1lh user, within time do you trash your battery and buy a new one?
After a year how many does this battery lost capacity?


thank you

I usually buy a new battery after about six months and rotate the two. It's nice to have a spare handy. Eventually the older one will start to fail... buy a new one when that happens. When it comes time to discard the older one, be sure to recycle it properly.

Battery life is very important for me because I don't want to buy a new battery every 6 month...
really every 6 month???

This week end I will buy my first camera (s230 or A70), and battery life is important for me (else I will buy a camera with AA battery).

do you think Canon will produce NB-1LH until for how many years?

yes! my pro for A70 is better quality and AA (camera lives forever).
Cons are: plastic and bigger camera for my pocket

pro for s230 is: cheaper, metal body, very little
cons: softer quality image, battery proprietary (camera lives until Canon will produce that battery)

Tha's why I am asking about battery life.
