Pentax *ist DS review
Jun 13, 2007

Very good camera to use but the rechargeable AA batteries are a poor system for a quality DSLR.
I find that they self discharge if the camera is not even being used. Ditto the backup set in the camera bag.
The batteries are Powerex 2500 (Japanese?)
Is there a GOOD AA Rechargeable which holds its charge and does not take hours to recharge.

Problems:

Poor battery system - camera deserves rechargeable lith-ion or better. Is there such an AA battery?
