Hi Spikeyb,

I have tried all sorts of different batteries and in the case of rechargeables it is well worth investing in quality high power ones such as Philips or Duracell. A quality battery charger is also a must, because I have had cheap ones that have ruined good batteries. I was bought a Maha 8 cell charger recently and it’s fantastic; it looks after the batteries, but charges them really quickly. Not all cameras work well with rechargeable batteries, but the Aldi Maginon which I use most of the time works brilliantly. I use Philips 2500mAh and they last between 3-6 nights depending on the amount of traffic; usually around 30 to 40, 30 second clips per night…most of them cats & wood pigeons. Arghhh!
