    I need some rechargeables for the canon A520.
    Where can I get these, plus a charger?

    Are there any particular brands I should get?

    you can get them at electronics stores, camera stores etc.

    Any brand will do, but I prefer energizer charger and batteries.
    They have long life batteries and the charger is effecient and not too expensive - around $50 for the unit + spare batteries.

    I've actually had good success with some generics that I found on ebay. And the price is hard to beat at about $12 for 12 or 16 batteries.

    Thats cheap!
    I'd just be worried they might leak if they are cheap ones. How likely is this?

    Where did you buy a recharger Ben, on ebay too?

    I had a charger that I got from Radio Shack, nothing fancy.

    A lot of times, the off brands are manufactured by the same companies as the brand names so I would say that the likelihood of this happening is minimal. If you are really worried, I would do a Google search first to see if anyone else has had any problems with a particular brand.

    Ebay :D
    Everything is on ebay, just go there.
    Dont buy if they are shipping from Hong Kong or anything though, try and buy local.

    i need to buy a budget NiMh battery charger, but i am confused to take a Sony Power Charger with 4 Ni-MH (2100mAh) AA Batteries (18.15$)and KODAK Ni-MH Battery Charger K605-C+4 Ni-MH (2100mAh) (13$) batteries

    Both the chargers come with four 2100mAh batteries, but i want to buy 4 more extra 2500mAh or 2700mAh batteries.. are these chargers able to charge higher capacity batteries???

    Typically, they are able to charge higher capacity batteries, charge time will be just a bit longer though.
