Finally replaced my old Kodak with little used 4mp Sony camera off ebay. My old rechargable Kodak batteries wont accept enough charge anymore to work the Sony so need new set as alkalines dont last very well in camera. Any particular deals anybody has run across? This site http://www.thomasdistributing.com/index.htm has some rated as high as 2900mAH (compared to 1450mAH on old Kodak batteries), but are they really twice as good? Or significantly better than say a 2400mAH AA? And mail order means I have to add in shipping for total cost and like most mail order small orders get stuck with disproportionate high shipping charge. Alas there doesnt seem place on Sony to plug in an external power supply or could make my own battery pack using couple D cell nimh, they come in power upto 12000mAH. Couple of them clipped to my belt and flex cable from them to camera would give loads of reserve.
