have introduced a new range of high capacity rechargeable batteries.
With up to four times the power of popular Ni-Cd (Nickel Cadmium) alternatives,
the Jessops-brand AA size 2000mAh Ni-Mh (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries enjoy
an excellent specification.
The longer life makes them ideal for equipment with a high power drain including
digital cameras, flashguns, and other photographic equipment - as well as general
products such as MP3 and CD players.
Nickel Metal Hydride batteries are fast-becoming a sought-after source of
power among photographers.
Unlike Ni-Cd versions, the Ni-Mh models do not suffer from 'memory effect'
problems, which means even when only partly used and recharged, they retain
and use their full power capacity.
Life expectancy is also high as they do not suffer from crystaline formation,
which can lead to 'shorting' and a loss of performance in other types of batteries.
And Ni-Mh re-chargeable batteries are also environmentally friendly, requiring
no special disposal as they contain ultra-low levels of toxic metals.
As with all Jessops-brand products, the batteries are manufactured to an extremely
high standard and backed by a two-year warranty. Costing £11.99 for a
pack of four AA-size cells, they are available from any of over 240 Jessops
stores across the UK, by calling Jessops Direct on 0800 652 6400, or by visiting
the secure on-line shop at www.jessops.com.
