AAA batteries for a digital video camera? Answered
We were recently given a digital video camera that takes three AAA batteries.
It's not the worlds greatest camera as you can imagine but it would be fun for our grandchildren to use in the summertime in the garden or possibly for the odd project.
The problem is that as I'm not yet a millionaire I prefer to use rechargeable batteries, the ones we have are quite adequate for the jobs we have needed them for up to now but this camera eats them for breakfast taking them from a full charge to flat as a pancake in a matter of ten minutes or so.
I'm the first to admit that when it comes to all things electronic I'm a complete dunce so without getting into the technical ins & outs of power drainage & how many amps live in an ohm or however it goes can anyone suggest a supplier in the UK where I can get batteries that are up to the job? I don't expect them to last all day long but rather longer than ten minutes would be good.
Alternatively if anyone could suggest a suitable battery pack and charger to replace three AAA's that would be great.
If it's any help the camera in question is a Mustek DV5300SE, as I said not exactly super hi-tech but could be fun for the kids.
Thanks in advance for your help.
