5.0 out of 5 stars True battery life as claimed, February 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ANSMANN Rechargeable AA Batteries 2850mAh high-capacity high-rate rechargeable NiMH Batteries (4-Pack) (Electronics)
When I did research for digital cameras for myself, I later decided on getting a Canon SX10is for several reasons. Then discovered something while reading reviews of the camera by professional photographers. They recommended Ansmann rechargeable batteries for this camera. These, as you know, are rated for 2850mah capacity. It was mentioned that these batteries truly held up to their battery life as claimed vs nearly all others found over the counter or on the shelf in common places falling short. I took the camera to Italy, ready to take pictures to my heart's content of the beautiful country. Having these batteries really helped me be prepared for the trip. I took over 1600 photos with only three charges and had plenty of power left after the third charge before getting on the plane for home. Granted I hardly used the flash but maybe ten times (most museums don't allow flash for understandable reasons). Always remember, it's best to remove the batteries from the charger only when they are fully charged for best results and life of the batteries.
The few times I did use the flash, these batteries held their own so to speak in flash charge times. They did not slow me down at all.
Since I've owned the camera, I've taken over 2000 photos and these batteries have not shown any sign losing duration between charges. I'd recommend these to anyone, especially for high drain devices.

Review Amendment: I recently bought a battery charger that gives a digital readout of voltage, mAh, mA and has various charge modes, refresh, etc. After trying out the charger with my favorite batteries (Ansmann), all recharged to their rated capacities, and some even better than their ratings. Now I can group common capacity units together as great, better, best for combined common performing units. This is fantastic and the charger has confirmed the quality of these batteries. Awesome. Always remember to fully recharge your batteries before removing them from the charger, and slow charging greatly maintains the life of the battery. Fast charging creates a hot battery and that is not good. If you can either choose a slow charger or select a slow charge setting will be best.

I assume you have either the La Crosse BC-700 or the Maha MH-C9000. Did you use the TEST function to measure the cell capacity, or just rely on the 'mAh' reading you see at the end of a CHARGE operation? If it is the latter, the reading is NOT the capacity of the cell. It is the amount of charge that went into the cell during charging, not what is actually stored by the cell.

Please repeat your measurement using the TEST function. I'm interested in seeing how good is the real capacity.

Yes, the Discharge capacity is what is important, as NLEE says.
