    I am looking around for a killer recharchable battery.
    I use them for my Zoom H2, my Seinhausser G3 and a shotgun mic.

    What have you used? What do you think is the best?
    I am looking at the Sanyo XX's

    Not too much experience in this but I recently got a set of 9 rechargeable Energizer batteries and I think its the perfect thing for my video kit. I mainly run my Canon DSLR, H1 mounted on top w/ dead cat/standard wind screen, a Røde shotgun mic and depending on the complexity of the shoot I usually get thrown multiple things that need power and the convenience of rechargeable is great....the day my H1 died on me in the middle of an important video shoot that my boss was relying on to please her boss was the day I decided to try these out! I really like them! I will ask around with my other buddy's who are even more high-speed with their video set ups that require killer audio about how they do what they do! Do you just do audio or do you do video as well?

    I do video. All of that is just my audio gear I use with a shoot.

    I've had good luck with the highly-rated PowerEx Imedion batteries. 2400mAh, hold their charge for a long time, good charger.

    I also see that the Sanyo Eneloop batteries get high marks.

    I love Eneloop

    I use 2400 mAh for my Canon Speedlites
    And smaller capacity for mouse, keyboards and toys.

    it seems to be between these two. The price difference seems minor between the two. The reviews for the Sanyo's have been better though, esp for speedlites.

    I use the Sanyo Eneloops...They work very well, but they do prefer to be charged with Sanyos own charger.
