    Hey ya friends. Need some suggestion regarding what capacity NimH rechargable batteries should I buy. Will 1100mAh suffice or shall I go a notch higher. Also recommend me some brand that I can trust on. I dont need fast chargers, anything that can charge in 10-12 hours will do.Waiting...

    What do you need the batteries for? And Uniross is the best brand.

    I'm using Sony 2500mah Ni-Mh batteries & they hold enough firepower to dabble into hardcore photography for two days. :D

    I own a CANON SX110IS digital camera (10X optical zoom) and it's a real battery hog.

    Can these batteries keep my camera busy for 300 shots?

    Mine is a kodak c610 and I don't think buying a 2500mAh battery would be within my reach. I am getting a deal of a pair of AAA 1100mAh batteries from envie and charger from uniross for a sum of Rs.350. Will my camera be able to take atleast 150 shots with this battery.

    There is no warranty. You don't need one since very rarely will you get a defective piece which you can replace. Purchase from a dealer who knows you well 7 you'll have no problems.

    Well thanks for the advice G5. But there maybe a chance that the charger goes kaput and warranty comes handy in such a case. The dealer knows me well and yet again the same question.
