Subject: Re: Batteries?

Thank you everyone for your input. SteamShip thanks for the url, I also
found this FAQ which benefits as all.

 http://www.thomas-distributing.com/maha-educate-batteries.htm
Q: My camera came with 1600mAh Batteries. Can I still use 1800mAh Batteries
or will they hurt my camera by being to strong.

Sure you can use the 1800 mAh batteries. 1800mAh denotes the capacity of a
battery, not its strength. Capacity is how much charge a battery holds once
it is fully charged.. The more capacity, the longer a battery will last in
any given application. Voltage is the strength. Rechargeable batteries
actually develop around 1.4 to 1.45 volts when fully charged even though
they are marked as 1.2V.
