What are the best brands of rechargeable NI-MH AA batteries to buy?

They are for a Kodak digital camera. I bought a 4 pack of no-name brand rechargeable batteries and they are useless!

    Hi Jennifer,

    I prefer the Powerex/Maha batteries. I use them in a Canon 580EX flash and they usually last all day, or about 600 exposures. They are a bit pricey but I think they're worth it.

    You can find them at http://www.mahaenergy.com/store/products_digcam.as...

    You can also take a look at "The Great Battery Shootout" for a fairly scientific comparison of the different brands - http://www.imaging-resource.com/ACCS/BATTS/BATTS.H...

    Only downside is that it is somewhat outdated, but even so it's quite easy to identify the better brands.

    Good luck.

    I accept as true with the different posters. in no way heard of 3800 mah for AA NiMH batteries. optimal I easily have considered is 2700 mah. some thing is screwy there in the event that they're quite categorized with 3800 mah. I often use Energizer 2500 mah, they're low-priced and have not permit me down yet. under $10 for a 4 %. at maximum shops like objective, Walmart and so on...

    I use the Maha Power Ex 2700mah Nimh AA's. They are good for 400 shots using the LCD 100%, flash 25% in a Canon A700. If you check your batts you will probably find they are a low mah type. I wouldnt use anything lower than 2400 mah in a digital camera.

    I have some Duracell 2400 mAh with a 15-minute charger. They last me about 3-4 weeks when I take occasional pictures, and about a week when I take a lot of pictures. I am not kidding when I say they are the longest lasting battteries I have ever had. I was using regular AA's, but they lost power in about 3 days.
