Have a digital camera which eats batteries. Whats the best solution for rechargeable at the moment? Have had a plug in charger before but always forget to put it on, are the usb ones any good? Cheers

I would recommend the 'Instant' batteries that can be found on the model power website. If you are like me you will charge them and take a few picks, then when you come back to the camera the batteries are flat. 'Instant' batteries hold there charge for a lot longer than a normal rechargable batteries.

if it takes AA batts then you need to look for a rating of 2500MAH ( mili amp hours) these are available as rechargeables

Batteries are available seperatley too to give you a couple of sets.. tey will certainly give you longer run times.

I hope that helps
