    For my new Canon SX100 IS, the batteries that came with it wore out very fast. It takes two AA batteries.

    What battery do you fellow board members recommend? Please vote and provide any experience feedback. I am leaning towards Energizer Rechargeable 2500 mAh AA's.

    Thanks!

    I would go for the NiMh. They work well in my flash, and I see good things about them all over.

    I would go with either the Energizer lithiums (will last a very long time) or the Sanyo rechargeable Eneloops, which will hold a charge if you don't use your camera right away, unlike regular NiMh recharegables.

    I've heard good things about the Sanyo Eneloops, although I have not personally used them myself.

    I voted NiMH because that's what I know and it works great. :)

    The Sanyo Eneloops are about two times the cost of regular Ni-Hm batteries. But as jetstar said, the discharge rate is a lot slower than regular Ni-Hm cells. If you use the camera at least a couple times a month, there is no point in the Eneloops, as regular Ni-Hm's will not noticeably discharge in two weeks. So go for some cheap, name brand Ni-Hm cells in the 2500-3000mah range.

    The Energizer Litihum batteries last foever. I must have gotten close to 700 shots on my S5 using a set of 4. Around 50 of the shots were with flash.

    Consumer reports did a study and found that although they are the most expensive (non rechargable) battery, they wind up being the cheapest because they last so long.
