    There are also some 2000 Mah Ni-Mh batteries on there too - for under £6.
    Ideal for digi cams.

    How much longer are the 2000 Mah Ni-Mh batteries likely to last over the 1600’s I use some 1300 and 1500 and although they are different makes the 1500 seem to last 25% to 33% longer(this is on a mini disc)?

    The batteries vary dependant on the type equipment they are used in. I have a digital camera it came with 2 X 1600mA Ni-MH the life on these is reasonably good I have since purchased some 1500mA ones thinking that they will make little or no difference but I was wrong they are down by about 30% when I use the screen and about 15% without. It seems the higher the capacity the greater the ability to recover its voltage so they should make a noticeable difference in the minidisc.

    I've noticed a small difference between 1500 and 1700 batteries when used in my digicam - so thought i'd give the 2000 ones a try. I doubt there's gonna be a huge difference but you never know. For £5.95 its worth a go.

    Just check the paperwork for the charger. You may find that if the charger is not up to it it will not fully charge them. Some charger have a timer function they charge for 8 hours and then go onto a tickle charge to maintain the battery level when the 2000aH battery may require 14 hours of charge they all work differently. The best thing is to contact the manufacturer and ask if you can charge a battery of this capacity but play clever and ask if they do a higher capacity battery.

    I was gonna start a new thread asking about the best prices for rechargeables but I thought I'd search first.

    I'm thinking of getting these
    http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=101211
    as I need a charger too.

    Any objections?
