Gawd, I never knew battery choosing could be so daunting. What an array of products out there.
Can I ask this question please. Am I right in thinking the higher the mAh a battery has, the better it is for my machine.

The mah is the amount of energy that can be stored, so the higher the mah the longer the batteries will last before they run flat.

I have always used Duracell and sometimes enloop rechargeable batteries as although may be a little more expensive have proven reliable, I think some cheaper batteries you have not heard of can overestimate there capabilities and also with the chance off some batteries causing fires when charging it’s best to stick to trusted and proven brands.

Good point Chip and noted. I was looking at the Energizer charger and batteries at 2000 or 2300 mAh.
Does that sound good to you? Was in town this morning with one in my hands, but wasn't sure.

They should be fine, I would go for the 2300. I have just checked the 4 Duracell’s I use in my at max are 2500 and last all day no problem. In My cs4pi I have standard Duracell’s as it will hardly ever be used as living miles from the beach :D
