Great for high drain items,
This review is from: Duracell Stay Charged Rechargeable 1950 mAh AA Batteries - 4-Pack (Electronics)
There are a lot of different technologies, numbers and 'formulas' of battery these days, be it lithium ion, how high the mAh is or even what make they are. These particular ones do however do exactly what is written on the packet. After using many different types of rechargables and non-rechargables these have come out on top. I use my AA's in a Fujifilm S9600 which is a great camera but has a tendency to eat batteries quicker than I can shovel down a box of Quality Street. Even the high capacity rechargables don't seem to escape it's thirst. The problem seems to be is that the batteries in the camera continue to drain even when it's turned off, obviously not as quickly as when powered up, but still enough that usage is frustratingly short. The Duracell Stay Charged however really are staying charged when my camera is off. A great product and great technology - I definitely recommend these to anyone who's quickly needed to grab their camera and got hair tearingly annoyed when the little red battery icon of doom starts flashing at them.

Good review giving some useful insight into the performance that might be expected. Much more valuable than the "these are great" reviews. Thanks.

I have exactly the same problem with my Fujifilm E550 camera and not even ordinary Duracell non-rechargeable batteries last more a few days (admittedly I do get them from the pound-shop!). I'll try these rechargeables, which by the way are half the price here than at Asda and review them later.

No offence, and I know its costly at first... but maybe you both should upgrade your cameras! I've had three digital cameras all with built-in battery packs and they save money on batteries... My old Fuji F30/F31 had an amazing battery life, I've also used my parents little Panasonic that takes great photos, and a Canon DSLR.
My friend has a cheap Fuji that takes AAs and it gets through loads when we go on trips and holidays, really not worth the hassle.!

I do agree somewhat Bottomlesspocket, but if you like the particular camera then you have to go with it, don`t you.?
