H1 batteries

Postby damienlovegrove » Mon Aug 15, 2005 4:25 pm

Is anyone using the new H1 rechargeable battery system? I think it's 7.2V

If so, how does it compare with the lithium option. I've been using lithiums for the past year and have now spent £70+ on cells. A year ago the rechargeable option was £300+ So I'm glad I waited. The new system is half the cost but is it as good?

Thanks in advance.

I am using two identical 7.2v rechargeable grips on my H1, and they work great. I can get almost an entire day of HEAVY shooting with just one grip. The other one is there as insurance. I paid $212 at B&H (USD). You've also got to buy the charger, separate. I love them; one less thing to worry about; whether you've got enough AA's from the store. Just leave it on Trickle.

Thanks Mark.

I'll get a couple of grips too.

Cheers,
