Any charger will work, as long as it will charge the right type of rechargeable battery at the right voltage. Most rechargers will switch between NiCd and NiMH. They sense voltage, not how much charge the battery has been given.

Hi
2600 mAh sounds very high for AAA batteries, most of mine are 1100 or 1000. However it is not this rating that is of primary importance for charging, but the current. Nearly all chargers that have the appropriate shaped slots for the batteries will charge them.
I use this one and have had no problems:
Maplin NiMH NiCd and Hybrid AAA and AA Super Easy 8 Way Battery Charger
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

You dont need anything very advanced. 2600 is a nice high capacity for Ni-MH AA's and 1100 is really high capacity for AAA's. Here is a little panasonic charger that would do the job just fine.

Which AA battery shall I buy for my digital camera? 1500? 1000? 2500?


Although you could use these, do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights. The lower capacities suggest NiCd batterie. Also don't use these.
A set of new NiMH batteries, from 2000 to 2600 mAh with a good charger, will be fine.
Two things.
There are very fast chargers around. Don't invest in them. I payed 80 euro for a quick charger. Could charge 2700 mAh batteries in 15 minutes. The charger killed all my NiMH batteries I had (more than 40) It took me till the fifth or so died, before I realised it could be the charger. Since I stopped all my batteries one by one died and I had to replace them all
I now have some "fast" chargers that take 2 to 3 hours and the new batteries Can handle that.
Better buy a slower charger and some good batteries, than the other way around.
Second. Test the 2600 mAh batteries, if they fit.
To put more capacity in the "same" AA battery some brands made them slightly thicker. So it could be you can't get the largest ones in your camera.

Any charger that will charge AAA batteries should do the trick. I have several 2600 mAh batteries, and use chargers from RayOVac, Nuon, and others without any problem.

Hi there! anyone help please? i opened up my remington pg-400 to change batteries, but i pulled them out and there is only the information that the batteries are GP and rechargable NIMH.. can anyone tell...


Try the highest mA AAA cells you can find or see Maplins for the pre joined pair. You will need a steady hand and a soldering iron with a fine tip there aint much room in there. The mA wont really matter, if you get a higher rating than the originals they will just take longer to charge.

I have a Vivitar Vivicam 5050 black and I use 2 AAA batteries in it ,but it only lets me take a few pictures and the camera turns of wanting new batteries. Can you help?


Please try and see if you are able to get high rating cells with higher mAh specified on the battery. Check for rating that are more than the one's that is used presently or use a different type/composition of the battery like Li-Ion.

Hi, Can I use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries in my Fuji S1730 camera. Thank you. Roy.


Hi Roy,

If your camera uses normal AA or AAA batteries you will have no problems with the rechargeable batteries. If you are considering to buy rechargeable batteries always try to buy the higher mAh range batteries. The higher the mAh the longer battery power will last.

Feel free to share if this solved your question!

I need ni-cad battery specifications for Acoustic Research AW-721 headphones. I bought replacement ni-cads but they don't charge when the headphones are placed on the headphone cradle/charger.


The AR AW721 headphones require 3 AAA NiMH batteries, not Ni-Cad. The original batteries are 1.2 volt, 550 mAh. I replaced mine with Energizer 850 mAh AAA batteries, which work well and actually last longer per charge than the originals.

Where can i buy a sony battery bp-hp550 1 1/2 4v


Even though you can use regular AAA batteries (that you would have to replace often), there is a huge convenience factor with using the charging cradle that comes with the Sony headset. A solution I found was that I ordered some 550 mAh AAA batteries through Ebay (they came from England and cost me $8 total for four batteries). To make the charging cradle work with the new batteries installed in the Sony headset you MUST use the bottom part of the plastic battery holder piece (all you need to do is peel off the BP-HP550-11 label and the bottom half of the plastic battery holder piece slips off of the Sony batteries). Then just slip in the new AAA batteries into the plastic battery holder bottom and then insert into the headset. The reason why you must use the bottom of the battery holder plastic piece is because the plastic piece pushes on a little switch. This switch activates the charging mechanism to enable the cradle charger to charge the batteries.

NOTE: I am not an electronics expert so I do not know if there would be any problem using other rechargeable AAA batteries (with higher mAh ratings). So I decided to be safe than sorry and ordered the 550 mAh batteries through Ebay.

This one is easy. The alkalines simply do not have enough power. You will have to upgrade to a better battery such as rechargeable Nickel Metal Hybrid (NiMH). Problem solved guaranteed. The new batteries must be rated at 1600 milliAmp hours or better. I use Monster brand rated at a very good 1850 mAh and work very well. I bought a Monster brand charger with 4 batteries for under 20 dollars. This info is for AA cells and will vary for AAA's.,,,,,,good shooting!

Does it have an AC Adapter?


From this page: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/CP7600/CP76A.HTM "The Nikon 7600 comes with two AA alkaline batteries, but I highly recommend picking up a set of rechargeable batteries and a charger. Read my NiMH battery shootout page to see which batteries currently on the market are the best, and see my review of the Maha C-204W NiMH battery charger, my current favorite. The optional AC adapter uses a "dummy battery" that slides into the battery compartment. This could be useful for offloading pictures after a long day of shooting, but really shouldn't be necessary for the vast majority of users." You should be able to find one for somewhere in the $30-40 range.

Kills Batteries


What kind of batteries are you using? It's a well-known fact that for instance normal alkaline batteries run flat in no time in these kinds of cameras. You'd better use powerful NiMH batteries, 2,000 mAh or above and a charger which does the job in let's say 1 hour or so. Also get an extra set of batteries. You'll never regret you bought it!
