dig camera battery charger

4 posts in this topic

I finally purchased a dig camera and am ready for some big fish pics. Once quick question..it runs off of AA's. Should I buy the AA charger that charges in 15 minutes, or the charger that take 1hr. I heard a longer charge time allows the batteries to hold the charge longer.

Thanks

I have both. I have had the 1 hr for over 3 years and I am still using some of the original batteries that I purchased with it. I have had the Fifteen Minute charger for about a year and really like it. It has a twelve volt adapter so I can charge batteries in the truck/car. I haven't had any problems with these batteries yet either.

Think of it this way, after eight charges you start to save money. I have slowly converted everything to rechargeables. Kids toys, remotes, GPS, flashlights, radios, camera, multimeter, scantool, PDA, to name a few.

Get both if you can afford it. Use the 15min for quick charges where time is a factor and use the longer one for a better finer charge to maintain batttery life.

Anchor Man,

As a part-time pro photographer my strong recommendation is to use the one hour charger. It's unlikely charging will ever take the full hour, however, but be sure to keep charging 15 minutes (or so) beyond full charge indication. Rechargeable nickel batteries (NiMh) are the best way to go for performance in weather extremes. Always, always, always carry two or three extra sets of charged batteries with you. Remember, you'll NEVER PAY for film again, and you'll only print a few "keeper" shots from each outing, so invest the savings in batteries.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
