    I just got a canon a75 and I want to know what the best type of rechargeable batteries are for it.

    The manual says to only use the Canon charger and batteries, but 250 minutes takes sooo long to recharge and I would like something faster. Anyone have a solution? :x:

    Also, should I buy the Canon AC Adapater for the a75? I would, but it's so expensive :(

    I was thinking it would be like $10, but I look and its around $50! :eek:

    don't bother with the ac. get a card reader. just get the highest mila amp power (2200, 2300) for the longest life. Lenmar just came out with 2300 power that recharge in 30 minutes

    I was thinking about picking up this system
    http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_reviews/rayovac_ic3.html

    4 times as powerful as regular alkaline
    15 minute recharge time
    up to 1000 charges

    The Rayovac I-C3 AA size batteries are rated at 2000mAh and perform the same as similar capacity NiMH batteries from other manufacturers.

    cost around $50 for the batteries + charger.

    is this something I should buy?

    you should be able to get higher capacity batteries for cheeper than that if you can go to 30 min or an hour recharge. I use to sell a 4 pack with overnight charger for $15, at 60% margin that paid me $3. I attached that to every camera I sold that took AA's. But if you want the faster charger, you'll pay for it.

    I get a few hours of use out of my Duracell NiMH batteries. $40 with charger. Takes 30 minutes to charge. Discharge time is also a factor people usually ignore. Gotta discharge them before you charge them up if you want to keep them in good shape.

    are these just regular AA sized batteries that you are looking for?

    sanyo makes some 3000mah AAs

    I use energizer batts that are 2300mah. cheap too 8 pack at sams club for 14 bucks.
