Buy Rechargeable Batteries or a Battery Pack for Your Camera Flash

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Evers & Co.

Rechargeable batteries are not as inexpensive compared to regular batteries, but in a few uses they will pay for themselves many, many times and a lot greener. I myself use a battery pack called a Quantum that gives me two weeks of mass shooting un-failed with a fast recharge. It is a rechargeable pack that screws in to the bottom of my SLR camera, they also carry an over the shoulder like purse style. Both can be purchased at most camera stores or online. When you are not using them for the camera put them in toys or other devises that use them. I rarely buy regular batteries any more.

What I use
XtraPower by Promaster rechargeable batteries, I have had over 2 years
Turbo Compact by Quantum, I have had just under 2 years

Lithium Ion batteries are the bomb.  They last longer, charge faster and have a smaller footprint.  They are also very light weight.  Oh, and no memory - like the ni-cads.

I always used to think batteries was batteries but have certainly found out differently.  Even among the same class of battery there can be big differences.  Thanks for the info.

Thanks much.  I've always liked rechargeable's, but want the ability to use AA's if needed.  Good tip, and thanks for the brand advice
