Ok..

The NImh ( think that'* the lettering) are supposed to be the best for cameras etc...

My question is on the milliamps. The higher the better, right?

For most of today'* cameras do best with at least 2000 mA. I use 2500mA when I can get them. They recover quicker.

Thanks..no need for the links.....well..necessarily.

Last night I got irritated that my camera batteries took a dump the second I turned it on with freshly recharged.

Headed to Costco and had the choice of 2400 mA or 2700 mA. Chose the 2700'* under the belief the higher the better.

Every once in a while, Harbor Freight has the 4 packs of 2500mA ones on sale for $2.99. I bought a couple packs last time I saw them for that price. Can't beat it.

And yes, they are the rechargeable NiMH.
