Rechargeable batteries are a must have for your digital camera. They will not only prevent frequent trips to the store they will also save you a great deal of money. Your digital camera is factory packaged with Lithium non-rechargeable batteries. Unlike 35mm point and shoot cameras, digital cameras drain batteries at a surprisingly rapid rate.
With this charging kit you will get twice the power that you receive from normal alkaline batteries and after a day of picture taking you can recharge them (up to 1000 times) for another chance at great photos. Best of all is you can recharge them even when the charge is is not completely drained, without having to worry about weakening the battery strength (no memory).
The DC-RMC battery charger will quickly charge AA or AAA batteries. The charging time for 4 Ni-MH AA cells is usually about 4 hours. The charger is switchable for either two or four Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries. The LED indicator glows red during charging and switches to green when charging is completed. Charger then enters trickle charge mode. Batteries can be charged for 1000 cycles.
