Re: AA batteries ... I am a convert, forget about em'!

Buckets of batteries??????

I am now on a third set of rechargables for my S6500. Call me stingy but when the last set gave up the ghost suddenly I wanted to know why. After much research on many sites I came to the conclusion that deep cycling NiMH batteries actually damages them. With these batteries there is still a lot of confusion about how to treat them and some people and sites still recomend doing a full discharge, this is exactly what I did before they failed. As I understand it now a good quality regulated charger should be used and never completely flatten them and their life span will be greatly extended.
