i have a fuji a800 digital camera,i got last christmas,i havent used it much,but do notice that ordinary batteries like duracell last maybe 2 weeks max in it!!! what batteries is it best to get? ni-cad? rechargables?
Live in my shoes for a week,then tell me your lifes hard!


  • Your best bet is some high-capacity Nickel Metal Hydride batteries (Ni-Mh) and Ni-Mh charger, something over 2,000 MaH preferably. You can pick up a charger that normally comes with 4 high-capacity batteries for around £20 or so. I use these in my digital cameras and they last a long time.

    If you want to go down the non-rechargeable route there are Lithium AA batteries about now which claim to last a long time, but I'd recommend the rechargeables - cheaper in the long run and better for the envoronment.
    Total debt as at Jul 2012: Too much!
