Which Batteries Are Recommended?

It is true of what people say "learning is an on-going process". When I bought an Olympus digicam two years back, I was happy that I was given a pack of rechargeable battery and a charger called "KEEP" for free. However, after a month, the KEEP batteries started to deteriorate causing me to doubt its quality. I asked my friends about it and most of them told me that Keep is indeed a poor brand.

Before becoming a photo enthusiast, I always assumed that a good battery should be an Energizers battery. And oh well, again, most of my friends warned me that Energizers do not last long and sometimes, if we are unlucky, we might buy the fake Energizers. I guess Energizers batteries are popular because if its aggressive TV marketing and not really because of its quality.

Many photographers recommended me to purchase SANYO batteries for my flash. They said SANYO are the experts in batteries. So, I started to purchase SANYO batteries since that day. The old version looks like this:
And the new version looks like these:
Trust me, These batteries perform so...............good! They last longer and can be recharged up to 1000 times. The eneloop batteries can be found in many photo shops and now even some computer shops started to sell it too.

And finally, if you want SANYO batteries to be recharged fast, please purchase the eneloop charger.
