dig camera battery charger

anchor man


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.

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.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
