Information and Product Offerings for Camera Batteries
Back in the day when someone mentioned camera batteries, they usually referred to AAAlkaline batteries.Camera batteries more often than not, were a good set of Duracell or Energizer batteries. But not anymore!
Now-a-days,camera manufacturers offer their own proprietary replacement batteries for the digital cameras they sell. They do this to gain a secondary business from the customers who purchase cameras and it’s a very big business today. Prices will vary for replacement camera batteries from one vendor to the next, just as all consumer electronic products prices do. It’s best to find a reliable and trustworthy supplier who will take the time to address your technical questions PRIOR to your purchase. You want to get the correct replacement battery for your camera – you want to protect your investment.
We receive calls and emails all the time, from customers searching for replacement camera batteries.They explain they are looking for either a 3.6 volt lithium battery or 3.7 volt lithium battery. However, camera batteries are Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) which is a completely different chemistry than lithium. Lithium Ions are rechargeable batteries, whereas Lithiums are not.
When looking for a replacement camera battery, always know the name of the camera that the battery goes into as well as the name of the camera battery itself. Some examples of battery model numbers are: Canon’s BP511 or NB41 and Fuji’s NP40. These model numbers will be visible directly on the battery.
You will pay far less money if you buy generic replacement batteries for your brand name cameras and they will work equally well. There is actually no need to buy SONY, CANON, FUJI etc... camera batteries. Generic replacement camera batteries are true and equal replacements! We offer replacement camera batteries for: Canon, Casio, Fuji, Kodak, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic, and Samsung.
You can ALSO use batteries that are not designated specifically as “camera batteries”. AA NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride) rechargeable batteries, for instance, which are used for hundreds of applications, will power your digital camera in the exact same fashion as would a “camera battery”. Purchased with a good quality charger, your AA NiMh rechargeable batteries will provide outstanding performance for your digital camera.
As with all batteries, AA NiMh rechargeables, are offered in many different mAh (milliampere hours) ratings. But what exactly does an mAh rating mean for you? It’s one way of describing the power of the battery. The higher the mAh rating, the longer the run-time will be for operation of the device that battery is powering.
Let’s present this analogy to describe it. We’ll relate mAh to the amount of water in a bathtub.
Suppose we have a bathtub with 2500 gallons of water in it and beside it, another bathtub with 2900 gallons of water in it. Which bathtub will take longer to drain??? Clearly, the bathtub with 2900 gallons in it will take longer to drain. That means that the 2900 mAh battery will power your device longer (before needing to be recharged) than the 2500 mAh battery. It’s as simple as that.
Within the range of NiMh chemistry batteries, are those that offerlow self-discharge. Over time, if left unused on the shelf, these batteries will only discharge slightly, compared to standard NiMh rechargeables. What’s more, within NiMh chemistry, comes the added bonus, and it is indeed quite a revolutionary bonus, of No Memory Effect. This means you don’t have to wait until your batteries are fully drained before recharging them. You can recharge them at any time, (people call this “topping off” their batteries) without concern that their “memory” will lessen.NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) rechargeable batteries do suffer from this effect. You must wait until they are powerless (dead) before recharging, otherwise the battery’s memory will become reduced. NiMh batteries are newer in technology than NiCd and cost more, but provide worry free battery maintenance.
Here’s another component to the camera battery subject to address.PhotoLithiumBatteries.
These batteries, otherwise known asCR123A, CR2, CRV3, 2CR5, CRP2, are available in either 3 volt or 6 volt sizes and are often used in camera flashes. They are an excellent and popular choice as well. They come in non-rechargeable and rechargeable formats.
So as you can see, you can power your digital cameras with Original manufacturer batteries,generic replacement batteries, NiMh rechargeable batteries, Photo Lithium batteries and even still, Alkaline batteries. It's all a question of what suits your budget and lifestyle best!
