Default Eneloops for hs10

Hi all, just wondering about Sanyo eneloop batteries. What milliamperes or whatever would be the correct for hs 10. I normally use lithium batteries but have not seen any here. Would 2500 be too much or is it all irrelevant.

The enloops are the best rechargeable AA batteries on the market. Think they are 2000. But it should not matter the milliamperes. I have swap lithium with enloops for a pentax dslr. And there was no issues. milliamperes really play more of a roll on how many shots you can take before swapping out batteries.

I go with envelops over the lithium as they are less expensive in the long run.

Thankyou shoturtle, I just got my camera today from Australia. In croatia atm and left nikon at home in my room via a last minute mix up. I wasnt going to risk the nikon via international post as that is my main camera. I still like my fuji tho so it should be good enough for photography under the circumstances.

Again thankyou for your input.

The best choice is a low-self-discharge NiMH battery. Sanyo Eneloop are
generally highly regarded by most users. Panasonic Infinium, Panasonic
Evolta Rechargeable and GP ReCyko are also excellent.

The most commonly available Sanyo Eneloop cells are the older
2000mAh type. The newer Eneloop XX types are rated for 2500mAh.
Either type would be a good choice for use in a digital camera.

Duracell StayCharged marked "Made in Japan" are actually rebranded Sanyo Eneloop.

When I had my HS10 and HS20 I found that the Sanyo Eneloops would last almost 2x as long as stanard AA rechargeables in those cameras......

No don't have the HS10 or HS20 anymore. I now have the Panasonic Lumix TS-3 and a Pentax K-5 (with 50mm 1.4, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 and Sigma 18-250mm with an older manual film camera flash, 3 spare batteries and several SDHC cards). I had 2x HS10 and 1x HS20 and just sold the last of the batch (the HS20) last week.
I got $200 for a heavily used HS20.

G'day flasha + et al

FWIW - the numbers on the battery [any battery] relate to the qty of power available to you ... same as Litres of petrol in the tank > the more the better

So if comparing 2 batteries, one of 2500mAh and the other of [say] 800mAh, then the 2500mAh battery has 3-times the available power than the other one

The 'however' comes into it with camera batteries with NiMh vs Li-Ion .... where NiMh fades slowly over time, whereas the Li-Ion keeps going until the 'death-knock'

Personally - with the cost factor for batteries, I prefer the NiMh AA-2500 batteries anyday to the extremely expensive 800mAh Li-Ion types > as we all know a set of 4a AA-2500 batteries can be retailed for $20-ish, whereas the canon-nikon-panasonic 800mAh Li-ion batteries are 3x more in price for 1/3 the available electrical power

Hope this info helps ...
Regards, Phil
