Information Article About Camera Batteries
MEGAbatteries.com is pleased to offer you this “text tutorial” as we like to call it on the fundamentals about Camera Batteries.
You don’t have to look very far to see that most everyone around you has a camera these days. Young and old, people want to capture the events of the world around them and have jumped on the bandwagon of owning digital pocket cameras. It’s logical too! Cameras are inexpensive, can be purchased at all big box stores, online and practically in every shopping mall everywhere. Many drug stores even sell cameras.
To operate all these cameras, batteries are required and unfortunately, they don’t come included with the camera at point of purchase (unless the store is running a promotion). If you have a digital camera, you will need to buy batteries to power them. But which batteries should you buy? Good questions!
That’s what we’re here for at MEGAbatteries.com
There was a time, not that long ago, that people powered their pocket cameras with Alkaline batteries. Nothing wrong with that.
The leaders of these batteries were Duracell and Energizer. Still are in fact.
Life evolves and today, the makers themselves of the cameras, actually make their own batteries (called proprietary) for the cameras. This has evolved into an additional healthy business for these camera makers. Let’s examine this:
A camera maker might retail their camera for $299.99. This camera comes with the manufacturers own battery inside it. To replace this trade name battery, one might have to spend 99$ when it comes time to replace it. You can easily see how this replacement battery business forms quite a healthy secondary division of the corporation.
As MEGAbatteries.com is a total solution for all your battery requirements, we advise you that there are MANY GREAT QUALITY camera batteries that are NOT proprietary to the camera manufacturer! Don’t be uninformed. You do NOT need to get proprietary batteries for your cameras to work just as perfectly and properly as they work with the brand name cells.
At MEGAbatteries, we do sell REPLACEMENT camera batteries for Canon, Casio, Fuji, Kodak, Konica/Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic, and Samsung, but sell a host of non-proprietary camera batteries for you as well! We make the declaration that they are fully compatible, equivalent and perfectly suitable replacements for the brand name cells.
As with all consumer electronic, battery-operated products, you have a choice between buying non-rechargeable batteries (Alkaline, Lithium) and rechargeable batteries, such as NiCD, NiMH and Lithium-Ion.
Now let’s get down to brass tax about non-proprietary camera batteries.
When you’re searching for batteries to power your cameras, it helps ideally to know the name of the camera. For instance. The name of the camera maker and battery for this example is: CANON BP511 or the NB41. BP511 and NB41 are not the names of the camera. They are the names of the batteries that come in cameras they make. Now that you know the name of the brand name battery they use, you can source the EQUIVALENT battery that is not proprietary and save big $$
Photo Lithium Batteries are what are considered to be the most popular camera batteries purchased today. Photo Lithium Camera Batteries are also called the CR123A, CR2, CRV3, 2CR5, and CRP2 batteries. These are either lithium chemistry batteries (non rechargeable) or Lithium Ion (rechargeable) batteries. All are very ROBUST batteries designed to withstand the performance that will be required of them in today’s digital cameras which are considered to be HIGH-DRAIN devices. High drain means that they require a lot of power and use a lot of power.
At MEGAbatteries.com, we believe that price alone is not the only factor to weigh when it comes to choosing a battery supplier. Ultimately, they must offer accurate technical information to all who inquire. They must deliver what they say, when they say, and how they say. They must reply to all emails and phone calls in a timely way and never ever make the customer chase them. They must be flexible enough to customize large wholesale orders in various ways. They must, all in all, be the total battery solution for their valued clientele! There are lots of good deals to be had online for button batteries and for all batteries for that matter who delivers after-sales-service, before the sale service, and during the sale service.
