Everything comes at a price.
Btw, I'd recommend something that can retain it's charge capacity after a long time of idling (not being utilized) like the Imedion/Eneloop. icon_rolleyes.gif

Hello everyone...

hope u guys r doing well....

To Bro Marsupilami

Hi there again..

well...u can try to buy it at camera shops as maha(powerex) is tend for speedlight usage...

where r u staying??..its best if u buy+search photography gear at shops that specially provide the right kind of gear...

to me..fotokem...shangri-la and other too commercial  shops is not that good...try to ask pros....they usually shop at shops that we never heard of...bcos these shops only known among the pros...why?..im not sure why...but i know these shops provide better range of products...they even provide good discounts for avid photographer..

if u'r staying in KL...head for 'international service centre' in 'pertama complex' or 'YL camera service" at 'pudu plaza'.

Just to remind u.....there r two kinds of batteries from maha..one is imedion and the other is powerex....imedion is the latest one. I actually not sure about the main difference between ths two..but from the writings...imedion is 2100mAh while powerex is 2700mAH...not so sure what these figures mean..but when i ask some friends...they said..powerex is good for heavy use..thats all i know..and im using powerex..

hmm..im sorry..to answer ur question about the charger..i really not so sure myself

and believe me..that battery case like our friend "soulfly" mentioned earlier...really comes in handy..

i know my comments tend to support the pros..but to me...i prefer to see what they used..and if its good...ill use it too..

Thanks..and again..these r just my opinions and experience..pls dont condemned me....discuss pls..

hi all..

i want to ask u guys help..

i m using sony dsc h5 and just bought a GP recyko batt to operate the camera. after charge it for the 1st time for 6hrs.. i start using it, but its so disappointed to see it can only take 20+ shots before its totally dried.

Its that the batt doesnt suitable for my H5 or something else?

The batt rating is 2050mah, i have heard somewhere that it need higher capacity but is that (20+ shots) the max it can do? i doubt it.

Hope anyone can response. thx

To Apis_LuaLua...

about ur case..there might be two problems..either its ur camera..or its ur battery....

first thing..before u jump into searching for problems with ur camera..i suggest u try to use other rechargeable battery...theres no need to buy a new one..
see how it went and try to compare its performance with ur GP batteries....

Apart from that.....why dont u try ur camera with normal alkaline batteries?...i mean...not the rechargeable batteries...and see how it went as well....


If the same problem still occur..well..i believe..its ur camera....just like bro "marsupilami" said..

another suggestion would be try to google the net...find people who use the same camera as urs...and discuss whether the face similar problems..

Hope these helps..

I have been using the same 2 sets (of 4x AA) maha imedion since last year, and believe me the performance is still the same. Sometimes I just charge and store them for weeks, yet the battery capacity is still around full charge. Number of shots per charge also around the same.

No comment about the normal powerex 2700mah, never use them.

Apis, normal rechargeable batteries have 1.2V while alkaline are 1.5V
the camera detects the charge left in the batteries by measuring the voltage. so guess when it reads 1.2V then it will say low. I think the camera might not be suitable with rechargeable batteries. check with the manual and see?

Any AA charger can charge AA NiMH batteries. It just depends on the charging rate only. Some charge as fast as 15 mins some as slow as 24 hrs!
depends on the battery size (capacity) also.

Try with 2 different set of batts (1 set Eneloop, 1 set conventional Ni-MH). Flash with full power. Observe the refresh time difference.

Anyhow, different flash/speedlight might have different characteristics.

My finding was based on 3 years of using the Nikon SB600/800/900.

GP sucks.
Performance drop after 5-6 mths.
After 12 mths, mostly 'kaput'.

How about now? Is the brand better now than it used to be?
