-- Tip o'da Day! --

Buying batteries for digital cameras - for those who have had the misfortune of having to purchase alkaline batteries for your digital camera, in a pinch, you know just how poor thier performance can be. You are lucky to fill an entire memory card before they die. Especially so if you use the flash a lot and/or the LCD screen on the back.

My tip is actually two:

1. Buy rechargable batteries! Yes they are more expensive at the onset, especially when you buy a charger as well, but in the long run you will save a LOT!

2. If you MUST buy disposible batteries buy Lithium! Energizer makes some great AA lithiums called E^2 (E Squared). The will last EASILY 3-4 times what even the best alkalines will, in a digital camera. They are difficult to come by, but often easier and cheaper than camera specific lithiums.

If you have a great tip, send me an e-mail and I'll consider your idea for the Tip of the Day.
